THE first 40 pallets of Nova Spring Water left the warehouse late last year of a Mt Druitt business bound for China, marking the company’s break into the overseas market.
While Nitin Lotliker and wife Roshni have achieved success in Australia, Mr Lotliker was especially satisfied watching pallets holding about 40,000L of his water load on to a truck to mark the start of a new stage for the small business.
“When we started in 2007 we had three employees; now we have about 20,” Mr Lotliker said.
With operations split 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 where Mr Lotliker showed buying group Ke Xin Pty his product. He said the light- and chemicalfree 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.
Mr Lotliker, Johnson Fan, Jerry Zhang and Qun Zhang (pictured above) finalised the first shipment to China just before before Christmas.
