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.
