Aussie-owned company soaks up 21 years of success.

From its humble beginnings as a manufacturer of absorbents for oil and chemical spills, Global Spill Control has grown from strength to strength.

Established in 1991, this Australian-owned company is now Australia’s largest manufacturer of oil and chemical spill equipment and a market leader in safety and environmental services.

This year Global Spill Control celebrates 21 years servicing Australian and global markets.

With its headquarters in Melbourne, Global Spill Control supplies a comprehensive range of environmental products to deal with chemical and oil spills.

Over the years the company has constantly expanded its product base and now offers more than 800 items to a database of some 6000 major customers.

It has developed a broad range of skimmers, oil containment booms, self-erecting tanks, oil/water separation systems, collapsible barges and many other items

Over 95 per cent of its product range is proudly manufactured in Australia.

“Obviously we encourage our customers to buy Australian-made, says Cameron Duffield, who joined Global Spill six years ago.
 
The company has come a long way since it first opened its doors, Duffield admits.
 
Founders Robert Watson and the late Ken Davis launched the company at a time when the Gulf War was raging in Iraq.
 
At that time, oilfields were ablaze and oil was freely flowing in parts of the country.
 
“The founders saw an opportunity to market products to mop-up oil spills and the company was born,” says Duffield.
 
Global Spill Control now has offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Tuggerah on the NSW Central Coast, Brisbane, Townsville, SA, Tasmania, Perth and NZ and a large network of distributors and resellers throughout Australia and NZ.
 
Customers include an extensive list of the leading companies in the oil and gas, mining, manufacturing, logistics, maritime, construction and service industries.
