Irish businessmen Andrew and John Moag have joined forces with a major UK company Van Walt Ltd to form a new venture: Van Walt Ireland. Van Walt is a leading supplier of environmental monitoring equipment and technology, servicing the environmental sectors from offices throughout the world.
Good news stories are rare these days in business, but despite the fact that the UK has come out of Europe, the launch of Van Walt Ireland represents a tremendous opportunity to service the Irish market in a more local and expedient way.
One of the main products that Van Walt supplies is environmental data logging solutions for water level and water quality measurement in rivers, lakes and groundwater using the latest data logging telemetry techniques, where information is collected and uploaded to Cloud storage. The great advantage of this is the data can be collected remotely without the need to travel to sites frequently, which in Ireland is a significant feature due to the geography and the cost of travelling long distances to remote locations. COVID 19 restrictions have also challenged those involved in environmental monitoring, limiting their ability to travel for site work and access their data. These smart remote monitoring solutions address both these factors as well as enhancing the quality of the data collected, frequency of measurement and data redundancy.
Van Walt Ireland will also hire some of the most sophisticated environmental monitoring and sampling equipment in the market, giving customers access to the latest technology for those involved in catchment management, groundwater monitoring and environmental research, without the need to invest heavily in the latest technology. “I am very proud to have joined forces with the Moag family, well-established and experienced colleagues in Ireland, to create Van Walt Ireland”, said Vincent van Walt.
The face of the new business, Conor Moag, General Manager concludes: “We will pool the expertise, resources and know-how from both the Van Walt and Moag stables to give customers the best equipment and services, at the best prices, in the most effective and efficient manner”.
