WMS spreads wings into effluent

Hi-Tech Enviro Solutions was fully integrated with Waikato Milking Systems on June 1. Hi-Tech Enviro Solutions was fully integrated with Waikato Milking Systems on June 1.

Waikato Milking Systems (WMS) will use Fieldays to promote its expansion beyond milking systems into effluent and environmental products.

The Hamilton company in 2015 bought the effluent management specialist Hi-Tech Enviro Solutions, founded in Morrinsville in 1992.

“The acquisition aligned with WMS’s expansion of its product offering,” said its chief executive Campbell Parker.

“Now is the right time to fully integrate effluent and environmental into the WMS core product offering rather than keeping it as a separate brand.

 “Since we acquired Hi-Tech Enviro Solutions we’ve been working to improve the quality of product and aligning the culture of both businesses to reflect the standards WMS is known for. 

“We’ve also needed to work with our dealer network to ensure seamless delivery of our entire product range. 

“Farmers will now be able to discuss their effluent needs with any member of the WMS team.

“When a farmer needs an effluent system review one of our dairy effluent specialists will advise and design a system for compliance. 

“WMS is a trusted brand in dairying world-wide, and adding effluent and environmental will give farmers confidence that they are getting the best advice and systems to future-proof their farm dairies.”

The WMS Fieldays site has been extended and will display all the company’s products -- milking parlors, milking automation, dairy management, milk cooling and effluent and environmental.
