Transpacific Industries has been rebranded as Cleanaway Waste Management.
The name change signals a brand shift that CEO Vik Bansal labelled as a “key milestone in our good to great journey”.
“But this represents far more than a rebranding, it represents far more than a change in style and colour, it represents us as a whole, moving forward as one under a single brand,” Bansal said.
“It represents Cleanaway making a sustainable future possible, now and into the long term."
Transpacific has launched the Victorian arm of its end-to-end organics soil injection program.
Dubbed the ‘Bio Ganics process’ Transpacific’s soil injection creates a nutrient rich fertilizer from liquid waste, collected from food and beverage manufacturers.
Once processed it’s injected into soil, about 10 to 30 cm below the surface, using a tanker tractor which has the capability to inject 24,000 litres of the nutrient rich solution every ten minutes.
Transpacific shareholders voted unanimously for a company name change to Cleanaway Waste Management Limited at the October 30 AGM.
The name change will come into effect in conjunction with a company rebrand on 1 February 2016.
Newly appointed CEO Vik Bansal stated the aim was to eliminate confusion in the market by moving to one brand.

Transpacific Industries has reported a small loss after tax for the financial year ending June 30, 2015.
Reporting to the market, the company said it had filed a loss after tax of 23.6 million, a relatively modest amount for a company with between $1 billion and $2 billion in revenue.
Major impairments for the company during the year included a critically low international oil price striking the company’s hydrocarbon business, which recovers hydrocarbon oils to be sold as remanufactured fuels.
