“The team at Compac will be an active presence at our regional forums, and our biennial Tech and Market Outlook Forums, and also share new R&D through webinars on our online channels.”
Compac Regional Director, ANZ, Damien Gibson, said Compac, which is headquartered in New Zealand, has been actively engaged with the Australian citrus community for over 30 years.
“Although we are headquartered out of New Zealand, Australia is our second home,” Mr Gibson said.
“During this time, we have built an unrivalled local knowledge, along with a dedicated Australian based team covering all aspects of our business including account management, full service, customer support, and training.
“Our market position gives us a unique insight into global best practices and sharing this knowledge with Citrus Australia members will help to strengthen the industry and foster innovation and new ways of working.”
