Armatec Environmental Ltd is New Zealand’s leading supplier of air pollution control equipment and industrial fibreglass products. We speak to Managing Director, Bryan Holyoake about how they help clients manage emissions and odour control through chemical engineering expertise and technical innovation.
Armatec has seen lots of changes over its 30 years in business, including growing awareness and legislation to protect the environment. Bryan believes that their success comes from a vital drive to protect Earth’s eco-system that’s matched with practical, commercial concerns.
“People are much more aware of the environment, absolutely, but they’re economically rational as well,” he says. “If you run a multi-million-dollar manufacturing organisation or food processing facility, you’re not going to overspend on a space that simply doesn’t need it. You’re likely going to go bankrupt if you make decisions like that. So, what we do is only as valuable as the business case. If they don’t see any value in reducing emissions or odour, they wouldn’t even call us.”
