From Sydney, Aquaknect moved to Grafton NSW, and from Grafton to Springwood, Queensland.
This resulted in the commencement of hydrostatic pressure testing of all braided hose, printing of ferrules for traceability and scrutinising of all purchased parts and components against official drawings and specifications.
Additional braiding machinery was purchased and installed. Aquaknect remains the only Australian company that braids flexible connectors for gas and water in Australia.
Aquaknect became accredited to Australian Standard AS/NZS ISO 9001 for quality.
in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
Aquaknect worked closely with the Hydraulic consultant, developer and mechanical services installers to provide hoses suitable for this application. Since then Aquaknect has gone on to supply many projects using this HVAC technology.
Aquaknect now works with equipment manufacturers both in Australia as well as Europe, the USA and China.
Aquashield, for general use was released.
to transition to the new Quality Assurance Standard, ISO 9001:2015.
This new version of the coated hose captures the coating beneath the ferrule for added security against corrosion issues.
