Mark talks us through the history of this innovative product and how it achieved the success it enjoys today. “EnviroSolutions and our Envirowash were invented early 2006 in direct response to the ever increasing problem for painters washing up tools and equipment on site legally. We invented a cost effective, easy to use, mobile system that contractors could relate to. Envirowash was first launched in Australia and New Zealand. In 2008, we made contact with Dulux UK in response to a problem at Heathrow Terminal 5 project where a competitor brand paint was being used and they had washed equipment on the ground that then ran into the river. Dulux UK went on to win the Olympic Village in London, Westfields White City among many other high profile projects. Dulux South Africa secured all of the Soccer venues for the World Cup and the first 5-star Green Build rated in South Africa, Nedbank Johannesburg. Alongside these triumphs, Dulux USA was able to secure such projects as Disneyland California and Orlando, major hospitals and numerous major building contracts. Our Envirowash System played a role in helping Dulux win these contracts.” Today the company has over 8,000 units in the field in more than 12 countries, and moving forward the focus will continue to be developing the range to include more accessories to support the growing demand, as Mark explains. “As we moved along our Envirowash journey, we were repeatedly asked by painters for solutions to other problems that they encountered in their day to day tasks. We then went about sourcing or inventing answers to most of the problems that were raised with us. This will continue to be our focus going forward as we seek to build upon our foundation of innovation.” Best Waste-Efficient Paint Disposal System: EnviroSolutions EnviroWash Systems EnviroSolutions, part of DGL International, provides an innovative product, the Envirosolutions Envirowash System, which is an innovative, water based treatment system that turns paint wash-out into clean water and solid waste, allowing for easier and safer disposal.
