AIS wins ‘Best Innovation Culture’ title and place in BRW’s 50 Most Innovative Companies List

AIS wins ‘Best Innovation Culture’ title and place in BRW’s 50 Most Innovative Companies List
August 26, 2015

Australian Innovative Systems's ground-breaking chlorine generation and water disinfection technology has been recognised by leading business magazine BRW - gaining inclusion in BRW's 50 Most Innovative Companies list.

Recognied during a recent ceremony at The Ivy Ballroom in Sydney, Australian Innovative Systems (AISystems) won recognition for 'Best Innovation Culture' and the number 23 position on the Top 50 list for its EcoLine Home technology for freshwater residential swimming pools.

Commenting on the win, AISystems Chief Executive Elena Gosse said that the Best Innovation Culture award was a great honour for her company and proof that, in order to truly encourage and support innovative thinking, that a culture of innovation must first be embedded and valued across every level of a company.

Gosse explained "we often say that innovation is part of our corporate DNA at AIS.

"These accolades are a tribute to the expertise and creativity that each member of our staff contributes to the whole, as well as the company's proud, 20-plus year history of innovation which includes world firsts such as our EcoLine freshwater technology."

The EcoLine chlorine generator automatically disinfects pool water via a process known as electrolysis and produces chlorine using only the natural salts and minerals already present in pool water. One of EcoLine's key points of difference is that it can operate in very low salinity water (Total Dissolved Levels from 1,200 parts per million (ppm) rather than the standard 5,000ppm required by salt water chlorinators). The benefit to pool owners is a hygienic method of water disinfection and a more natural, freshwater* experience that feels more like swimming in a freshwater stream or lake than a residential pool. As is the case with all of AIS' inline water disinfection technology, EcoLine means that pool owners can also bid farewell to the dangerous practice of liquid/granular chlorine storage, handling and dosing forever.

Gosse adds that "the EcoLine Home chlorine generator creates a safe, convenient and hygienic freshwater pool with 'softer' feeling, less chemically-treated water without the taste of chlorine or salt."

EcoLine's technology was first pioneered by AISystems in 2009 for commercial scale facilities, and has subsequently been expanded for the residential pool market.

Gosse added "ater five years of research and development we can now offer home pool owners the same quality, innovative technology that is operating in some of the world's leading resorts, hotels, aquatic centres and water theme parks."

With over 20 years' industry experience, Brisbane-based AISystems is considered one of the world's most trusted water disinfection companies.

AISystems' brands include AutoChlor, ChloroGen, EcoLine, MineralChlor and Chrome and it has exported its technology to over 55 countries.

The BRW (Business Review Weekly) awards recognise excellence in innovation. This year, over 500 entrants sought recognition on the list.
