WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS OUR FRIENDS ACROSS THE GLOBE JTCM Comércio e Tecnologia (JCTM) BRAZIL JCTM started the partnership with Ecotech in the beginning of this century, more precisely in 2001, although we had been part of the Ecotech’s history before, when Jose Claudio, JCTM’s founder, took part of the assembling, commissioning and starting of four fixed AQMS (Air Quality Monitoring Stations) and one mobile AQMS in the city of Rio de Janeiro, being the first Ecotech system installed in Brazil. We’ve had many great moments, one special moment was when we won the premium to “1 Million in Sales on 2010/2011 period”. the Ecotech team. Our sales reached an important group of clients in Brazil, both to national and international companies installed here. Among several projects we highlight 3 of them: • Samarco: 6 x AQMS (Espirito Santo - 2011); • City Hall of Rio de Janeiro: four x AQMS, which were added to others 5 Ecotech AQMS, acquired in 2001, totalling 9 Stations, 1 being mobile. Since 2009, JCTM operates these 9 Stations; • IAP (Instituto Ambiental do Paraná): 7 x AQMS (Paraná - 2015). Our company already sold further 30 x AQMS complete stations and more than 50 HiVols, besides other small Systems in our country, spread in many cities of Brazil. Nilupa Dediwalage MECHANICAL ENGINEERING MELBOURNE My proudest moment and biggest achievement whilst working at Ecotech was being handed the reins to lead the Mechanical Engineering team after just 9 months in the Research & Development department. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to experience a leadership role for the first time. Image by: Nilupa Dediwalage We are now spreading the Ecotech name in other states, further expanding the knowledge and its capacity on high technology, creating value and recognition everywhere in our country. On one Ecotech Distributor Conference, our team took part of training in Australia and Ecuador, and conferences in Mexico, Dubai and Spain, from where we were able to enlarge our relationship with several Ecotech members from other countries and also strengthen relations with All the given support, conferences and training promoted by Ecotech were very positive, bringing to us some good experiences. We hope coming 15 years more for our partnership... Hope coming 40 years more for Ecotech... Congratulations! Leena Iyer FINANCE MELBOURNE On 25th February 2016, I was conducting Open Book Management (OBM) training for some new starters, this was my second time that I was conducting the training but Nicholas Dal Sasso couldn’t attend the first training session so he was interested in attending the second round of training. Image by: Leena Lyers During the training after watching and participating for a while, Nicholas got up from the chair to leave, he turns around and gives me a big smile with appreciation and a big raised “thumbs up”. That is what I call a “proudest moment”. It made me so happy and proud of what I was delivering to the new starters and I will cherish that always... Thanks for giving me that chance to share with everyone. ECOTECH : TOGETHER
1995 Data Reporting: First contract to supply air quality data reports Nicholas Dal Sasso Kelly Hatton MANAGING DIRECTOR MELBOURNE There are many candidates for my proudest moment; from receiving the Australian Export Award in 2013 to seeing our Melbourne dispatch team clamouring (safely) over fire hoses to receive a delivery to the warehouse (the show must go on!). But the ones that stand out the most HUMAN RESOURCES MELBOURNE I really enjoyed putting together the staff engagement survey. I love reading the comments and hearing from the employees. It really challenges me to think about what it is I can do to influence change. THE ECOTECH FAMILY Image by: Camila Trindade RUMOUR HAS IT Bernard van Zyl EASTERN SALES BRISBANE “Fun sale!” This is the customary greeting by Anders Arvidsson at Opsis whenever I call him. We have been associated professionally since the 90’s and he has always made a point of pronouncing my surname the way I do in my mother tongue. Anders is an exceptional person that shaped my professional life in more ways than what he realises. I call him a business associate and my friend. David Ding ENVIRONMENTAL REPORTING SERVICES (ERS) MELBOURNE I like to work at Ecotech and I feel very comfortable in this company. Ecotech is a warm family to me. My children like our Christmas parties, where they have enjoyed fun times. Image by: Bernard van Zyl are to witness those staff who have placed their and (sometimes) their family’s trust in Ecotech to come to a foreign country and start a new life. Maybe it’s because I am the son of a refugee, but it gives me an immense sense of pride when I see these journeys resulting in a staff member obtaining their citizenship and leading a successful and productive career. I am always humbled by the bravery and trust shown by these hardworking and optimistic individuals and it makes me proud to know that Ecotech had a part to play in starting their new life. Frank Kirn PURCHASING MELBOURNE I’ll never forget taking Nicholas' bright yellow Audi (Pluka) for a test drive one morning when he got it back from being boosted and chip tuned and he was all excited to show and tell me all about it. Grant Kassell RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT MELBOURNE There's a rumour (I seem to recall actually hearing this from Robert Dal Sasso) that shortly before “9/11” changed airport security, Robert Dal Sasso was at an airport in Canada with Judy, his wife, when a border security official asked him if he was carrying any weapons. He apparently replied “Not this time”... Somehow I don't think you could get away with such a comment so easily nowadays. 31
Very efficient. Competitive pricing. The reminders, I’m so busy in my job that it’s so great to have a reminder to do something. It really helps me.
I’m very happy.
