Leaders In Water Treatment Technology

Ecoworld is a family owned and operated business based in the mighty Waikato established in 1993 by husband and wife duo of Fred and Ruby Walker. At this time the use of bio-remediation or microbe technology (natural micro-organisms/bacteria) to treat organic waste was (and to some extent still is) in its infancy in New Zealand. Having come across this ‘new’ technology in their travels innovators Fred and Ruby saw an opportunity for how it could be applied within New Zealand and Ecoworld was born.

Ecoworld began as an environmental based company providing specialised services using all natural bio-remediation treatments for the clean-up of Liquid Organic Waste (LOW) specialising in the treatment of septic tanks, dairy effluent ponds and grease traps.

Gaining success and providing their services the breadth of the country, Ecoworld were soon approached by European organisation Grander Technologies, who were looking to expand globally and were seeking international distributors. Impressed with Ecoworld’s environmental image and philosophies Ecoworld were invited to become Grander’s agent and sole distributor in New Zealand. This partnership saw the introduction of Grander’s water revitalisation technology into New Zealand, a technology which has been available throughout Europe for more than 30 years.

Fred and Ruby’s son Ron, came into the business looking to expand the repertoire of the business to include ‘before use’ water treatments like water filtration and purification. With a focus on the rural industry Ron’s knowledge and expertise has built this into an integral part Ecoworld’s future moving forward.

Ecoworld Water Treatment Today

Today, with over 22 years of experience in the water treatment industry, Ecoworld has a wealth of knowledge and experience in water purification, revitalisation, treatment methods and systems. Ruby and Fred are still involved in the company but have handed the reigns over to Ron and his wife Katherine to move the company forward for the next generation.
