Osmoflo: Desalination and water recycling

Australia’s largest locally-owned desalination and water recycling company, Osmoflo, has experienced a 30 per cent growth per annum over a ten year period since moving its manufacturing operations to expansive premises in Diment Road, Burton.

“Salisbury is recognised around the world as a pioneer in stormwater capture and re-use, and we are delighted to call this city our home,” said the company’s founder and principal, Marc Fabig. “Our growth trajectory meant we needed to establish a base with sufficient room to expand.

“We have constructed new office facilities at Burton to accommodate up to 160 staff in engineering, project management, operations, finance and sales.”

“We considered a number of options interstate to establish our corporate headquarters, and we now have offices in each capital city of Australia. But in the end, Burton was the wise choice because it is central to our markets and we have the room and flexibility for continued growth.

“Today it is the largest facility in the southern hemisphere dedicated to the design and fabrication of reverse osmosis desalination equipment, including a full test rig for completed modules.”

Since it was established, Osmoflo has custom designed, manufactured and commissioned around 300 water purification systems of varying capacity for industrial and public clients. Its customer base includes municipalities and communities, the mining and power generation industries and the food and beverage sectors.

“We are well-placed to grasp opportunities and meet challenges to provide water solutions across Australia and overseas,” continued Marc. “Burton is our solid base to realise our potential against stiff global competition from multi-national companies.”
