App-Tek was founded in 1992 to source air monitoring equipment from around the World and to concentrate on supplying that equipment for Occupational Health and Safety applications within Australia.
The company built up a comprehensive product portfolio of monitoring equipment which included sound level meters, noise dosimeters, heat stress monitors, dust samplers, and specialised air samplers to detect vapours and hazardous gases.
In 1993 the business moved to premises at Brendale in Pine Rivers Shire, Queensland, Australia and App-Tek then began to promote its imported product range into new areas.
In particular, App-Tek successfully introduced the Neotronics MiniGas portable gas detector to the Australian underground coal mining industry and by the late 1990's had developed this product to the extent that it had become the most used and best
supported portable gas monitor in this industry.
With the employment of key technical staff in the mid to late 1990's, the new skills they brought allowed the company to address a niche market opportunity to design an electronic measuring instrument for odor control in the wastewater industry.
Ensuing research and product development culminated in the January 2000 launch of an innovative environmental product, the OdaLog H2S Gas Logger, and by this stage the business had grown to employ 15 people.
Following market acceptance in Australia, international marketing activities commenced and, as at June 2003, distributors had been appointed in twenty one countries with excellent acceptance of the OdaLog brand occurring in Europe and North America.
