Company sells water to China
NOVA SPRING GOES OVERSEAS We filter our water far more than the industry standard, down to 0.02 microns so it makes for a very smooth and soft taste. – NITIN LOTLIKER
THE first 40 pallets of Nova Spring Water have left the Mt Druitt warehouse bound for China, marking the start of the company’s break into the overseas market.
For eight years Nitin Lotliker and his wife Roshni have forged ahead in an Australian market dominated by two multinationals.
While they have achieved success with big clients, such as Officeworks in Australia, watching as the pallets holding about 40,000L of his water were loaded on to a truck on Friday, Mr Lotliker said he was excited to introduce the company’s bulk water to an even bigger market.
“When we started in 2007 we had just three employees and now we have around 20 working for us,” he said.
Splitting operations between the Penrith head office and the Mt Druitt warehouse, the company’s big break came at a trade day hosted by the NSW Business Chamber and Austrade.
It was there that Mr Lo-tliker showed buying group Ke Xin Pty Ltd his product, which draws on the fresh, clean, green image of the Nepean River and boasts BPA-free recyclable packaging.
Mr Lotliker said the light and chemical-free way his company disinfected the water was what set it apart.
“We filter our water far more than the industry standard, down to 0.02 microns so it makes for a very smooth and soft taste,” he said.
The big break also follows the company’s inclusion in the NSW Business Chamber’s Export Growth China, which offers businesses a low-risk and low-cost entry point into the country.
