About BPO

Always innovating and leading the way

BPO was founded in 1990 (formally Trident Monitoring Services). Geoff, Greg and Kate identified a need for reliable, quality environmental engineering services and products in the Waikato. 
Growing up on a dairy farm in the Waikato and spending over a decade working for Fonterra, Geoff’s practical knowledge and strategic approach to waste management and commitment to environmental engineering was evident from the beginning. 
A lot has changed in water and waste management over the past 25 years, manufacturing, regulatory requirements and resource availability have had an impact on many industries.  
The team at BPO are always innovating new products and solutions for this ever-changing demand.
