We are pleased to announce that on 1 August 2015, Global Spill Control merged with Perth-based Perth Petroleum Services to form a unified, industry-leading spill control manufacturer and retailer. This merge sees Global Spill Control become Australia’s largest retailer and manufacturer of spill equipment.
We will continue to trade under the name of Global Spill Control, maintaining a 24-year old tradition of designing, manufacturing and supplying environmental products for Australian industry.
The business will still be locally owned and operated by Perth Petroleum Services’ Matthew Baldock and Brad Lowson, together with Robert Watson, the existing owner of Global Spill Control.
We will retain our head offices in both Melbourne and Perth, in addition to our existing sales and warehouse facilities in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Tuggerah, Brisbane and Townsville.
Brad says “Matt and I have been waiting for the opportunity to become more involved in activities on the east coast and see this merge as a great way to achieve that. Our team will continue to operate as usual, maintaining existing working relationships and delivering the high quality service our customers have come to expect from us.”
Matt adds “we are very excited about being part of a manufacturing business that offers Australian made products and keeps Aussies in work. It also allows us to make and customise products for our customers more efficiently than our competitors who may import the same items”.
Both Global Spill Control and Perth Petroleum Services are two well-established Australian businesses that have complemented each another over the past twenty years. As a manufacturer, Global Spill Control has serviced and supplied the east coast market whilst Perth Petroleum Services managed Northern and Western Australia.
Rob, Matt and Brad will continue to be actively involved in day-to-day activities, delivering in excess of 45 years of spill control expertise between them.
Rob says “together, we are well-positioned to continue to expand our product range and further develop our service and delivery to customers around Australia and overseas. We are also making sizeable investments in plant and equipment later this year to modernise and expand our manufacturing capability, further reinforcing our long-standing commitment as an Australian manufacturer.”
