Biotropica staff have highly specialised environmental management skills, with our strong focus on tropical ecosystems management. These skills are equally valid across the Asia-Pacific tropical zone, and in recognition of this the company has been developing export markets in PNG, Indonesia and the Pacific Rim. The company began exporting its expertise in 2005 and since then has been awarded long-term contracts in PNG with companies including Ok Tedi Mining Ltd and ExxonMobil. Negotiations are currently underway with Fijian and Indonesian companies in relation to establishing long-term contracts for projects in those countries.
In recognition of this export drive, Biotropica was a recent finalist at the Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards 2011. Biotropica Directors Nigel Tucker and Tracey Marshall attended the awards ceremony in Brisbane in October. The company was nominated in four categories, and was one of three finalists in the ‘Emerging Exporter Award’ category. Congratulations to Minecorp Vehicle Solutions who won the category. Biotropica is committed to exporting its tropical expertise and will continue to expand into new areas to the north and east of Australia.
