Acoem Australasia

From a family business to globally trusted brand

We’ve come a long way since engineer Robert Dal Sasso and his wife Judy began working out of his basement in suburban Melbourne, Australia. What started out as a decision to import data loggers from the United States in the mid-1970s became Ecotech, a company that solved problems and designed solutions to help thousands of environmental agencies, government authorities, researchers, and industries worldwide.

The family run company was a true pioneer in air quality monitoring and Robert was a visionary when it came to anticipating new technology, identifying industry trends and travelling to remote parts of the planet to see Ecotech monitoring systems commissioned and operational. Ecotech was always positioned at the forefront of change, innovation, and strategic decision making. The tradition continued under the leadership of Robert and Judy’s son Nicholas Dal Sasso, who took over the reins of the business in 2012. 

The Acoem era – synergies, partnerships & growth

With a heavy emphasis on precise data and the research and development of our own range of sensors, analysers, calibrators, samplers and loggers — designed and manufactured in Australia and India — Ecotech became the instruments of choice of leading atmospheric research networks and global scientists, garnering a global reputation for reliability and excellence in the field or lab. 

By 2017, Ecotech caught the attention of the Acoem Group — a global company that helps organisations find the right balance between progress and preservation by safeguarding businesses and assets, and maximising opportunities while conserving the planet’s resources.

In 2021, Ecotech became known as Acoem Australasia (Ecotech Pty Ltd) – the Australian and Asia-Pacific arm of Acoem. The merger between the two companies brought together two proven innovators in science and engineering who shared a mission to improve environmental, productivity and regulatory outcomes for government agencies, industries, and communities around the world. 

Today, the combined strength of Acoem is reflected in its 900+ employees working across 28 offices, 6 manufacturing facilities, and 5 R&D centres in 11 countries. Together with its 200+ distributors, Acoem delivers trusted, holistic data solutions through unrivalled, interoperable AI-powered sensors and ecosystems that empower customers in nearly 100 countries to make enlightened decisions based on accurate information.

We are truly creating environments of possibility.
