This is a unique business opportunity to acquire the Intellectual Property (IP) for the Australian Billabong Hydraulic Water Rams (BBHWRs).
The BBHWRs have been manufactured in Australia for the past 165 years and have been used extensively in the Australian and Pacific Rim Countries markets. The BBHWRs are iconic in the Australian water transfer industry. Due to their uniqueness (field proven longevity and reliability), the BBHWRs have hundreds, possibly thousands of satisfied Australian and Pacific Rim end users, who are enjoying the benefits of free continuous water supply on a 24/7 basis, for the whole year. There are many BBHWRs end users who have been operating BBHWRs for more than 60 - 80 years. In fact, we have a customer (a third-generation farmer) in Far North Queensland (Australia), who has been operating BBHWRs for, more than 100 years. We have been actively marketing the BBHWRs in the Pacific Rim and other areas (PNG, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Fiji, New Caledonia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Indonesia etc.) for many years, where we now have many satisfied BBHWR customers enjoying the benefits derived from the operation of our BBHWRs with the added benefit of a free water supply. Billabong Rams are field proven technological devices, renowned for their longevity and reliability. In addition, they are considered a truly green product with zero pollution emissions.
The Billabong Rams’ reputation has been underpinned by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) recognition, where many BBHWR’s No. 7 have previously been supplied for a UNDP Water Supply Project in the Solomon Islands. The Project was designed to provide a continuous water supply to several indigenous and remote mountainous villages in the Solomon Islands. Whilst we have been actively marketing the BBHWRs in these countries, there is a need to promote the unique, field proven technology derived from the BBHWRs operation over the last 165 years and increase further marketing activities in global markets across all continents.
Whilst the BBHWRs have been manufactured and marketed in the Australian and Pacific Rim Countries for the past 165 years, there is a need to expand the BBHWRs marketing globally. As a result of this, we believe that, due to their history, reputation, reliability and field proven longevity, our BBHWRs have the potential to be introduced to other countries worldwide. To accomplish such objectives, it would require a manufacturer with substantial manufacturing and marketing capabilities, with an already established global marketing network. Due to these set objectives, MISAL is therefore exploring the option of selling the Billabong Hydraulic Water Rams (BBHWRs) Intellectual Property of the to an established and suitable large business enterprise.
Based on the above outlined objectives, our company is therefore inviting a selected number of established, reputable organisations to consider acquisition of the BBHWRs Intellectual Property. We envisage that these companies will consider the acquisition of the BBHWR IP as an appropriate complimentary addition to their existing product range. The successful company or organisation we are seeking would already have the following attributes established:
Proven pumps or engineering precision Machinery manufacturing capability, including history, track record, and the necessary QC Certifications in place
An established marketing network for their own Pump products in the domestic and international markets, which would be made utilised for marketing of the BBHWRs
