IDS was established in 1995 in Brisbane as a distribution company selling PPE and workwear to local businesses. In 1998, with clients looking to get more economy from their investment, we began offering a glove recycling service. However, we soon discovered that normal commercial laundering techniques were highly damaging for these items, and unreliable for decontamination, so we set about finding a solution.
In 2001, our first cleaning and decontamination facility was established at Brendale in Brisbane and we set about refining our process through an extensive R&D program, which we continue with to this day. We always strive to ensure we are providing the most effective and economical service for our clients and ensure that our process keeps pace with new developments in PPE/PPC manufacturing and materials used.
In 2007, the decision was made to sell the safety products distribution business and Industrial Decontamination Services Pty Ltd became Australia's (and one of the world's) first stand-alone PPE decontamination business. A proven track record in this area of specialisation, has seen IDS grow from two staff to over 40 staff members and we now have facilities in Brisbane, Gladstone, Melbourne and Perth with plans for further expansion to provide complete national coverage. We also work with other businesses around the world to establish our services where they are needed.
While our business has been built around our core decontamination program, our services extend well beyond that into complete asset care and management. We assist clients with sourcing and procurement, warehousing and distribution, care and maintenance, and finally, destruction of items that reached the end of their useful lifespan. Our IDS Nannodeus database allows us to track every activity that happens to any given piece of PPE/PPC which means clients can always see in real time the current status of their entire PPE stock.
