AIS Water has welcomed Queensland’s Minister for Employment & Small Business and Minister for Training & Skills Development, Ms. Di Farmer, State Member for Lytton, Ms. Joan Pease MP and the CEO of SPASA Australia, Mr. Lindsay McGrath to see the planned expansion of the company with its third manufacturing facility under construction at Tingalpa.
AIS Water is an award-winning company with a nearly 30-year history of innovation and excellence in the design and manufacture of inline chlorine generation technology via electrolysis for swimming pool water disinfection.
CEO of AIS Water, Elena Gosse was delighted to lead a tour of the company’s existing and future facilities and inform the Minister and VIP visitors about AIS’ continued success and growth over the past financial year, including how it had overcome Covid19 challenges and recorded a 35% increase in business.
The swimming pool industry has encountered setbacks due to the coronavirus, particularly the repeated closure of public pools and complexes across the country, but Ms. Gosse said the issue served to shine a spotlight on the need for greater pool safety.
“At AIS Water we are acutely aware of the need for advanced water disinfection technology such as ours which not only keeps pool water safe and clear but communities safe, because there is no need to store or handle granular or liquid chlorine, Ms Gosse said.
“The Minister was particularly interested to learn of our push for a ‘Safe School’ initiative to ensure schools across the nation are informed about the public safety dangers of conventional chlorine dosing and the environmental consequences due to the need for water dumping.
“Our water disinfection systems can now be found in 55 countries worldwide including 120 Queensland school pools and 16 out of 22 Brisbane City Council municipal pools, so Queensland is really leading the way in this area.
“On a personal note, I was thrilled to learn that the Minister swims almost every day at the Colmslie Aquatic Centre and Health Club as it is protected by our technology.”
Mr McGrath shared SPASA’s initiative to encourage formal training for pool operators, particularly its new Commercial Pool Technician Program which delivers the required Aquatic Industry Qualifications to compliantly manage public and commercial swimming pool and spas in Australia.
AIS is currently building a third, state of the art manufacturing facility in Brisbane that will further cement AIS Water’s role as a leading innovator in swimming pool water disinfection, as well as manufacturer of catalytic anodes. The anode facility will be the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
