Anthony Flynn and Philip Pentland founded the Eureka! groupin 1999 with just two staff. Since then the group has grown to employ 40 people. Anthony is the Managing Director and Philip is the Director of Operations. With 9 specialist chemists, two agronomists and an engineer we believe that we are the largest, most responsive, most successful and best qualified company offering product development and toll manufacturing services in our industries in Australia and New Zealand. Our staff and managers are handpicked for their problem solving abilities. Our business works at the interface of plants/animals and chemistry and our managers are trained to cross between these disciplines.

Eureka! isa “one stop shop” in product development. We have formulation labs, stability testing facilities and equipment to test in-tank and spray performance and can include the evaluation of bioefficacy and crop safety.

At any one time about 35 products we have developed are being evaluated by the APVMA. Over time we have developed a sound understanding of the requirements of the government regulators.

We have developed over 350 commercial products ranging from novel technologies that have been patented to simple image formulations of existing products.
