Duncan Reynolds:

We're quite a traditional business, we do a lot of sort of old school manufacturing, and the manufacturing industry is changing very quickly.

Kylie Ridding: 

Hi, I'm Kylie. I’m from SVSR. My parents originally started the business over 30 years ago. I joined – the last sibling of the family to join  the family business about 2010. At that time the business moved to Liverpool and we've been in Liverpool since then.

Duncan Reynolds:

We work on sewer ventilation systems for water utilities including Sydney water, many regional councils throughout New

South Wales and we design manufacture and install throughout New South Wales and increasingly throughout Australia.

The AMRF can really benefit our business by helping us expand our products and services range. We work in a very dynamic, fast changing environment - we need access to excellent research, we need access to excellent manufacturing facilities in order to remain competitive and grow our business.

Tony Jankovic:

We're looking to take our business to the next level through innovation of obviously streamlined manufacturing and obviously growing our business into other sectors where our services obviously are needed.
