Who are we? We are a small but growing band of committed professionals on a mission to create the technology that makes clean water universal for all who inhabit our planet. Our staff consists of approximately 60 full-time employees including PHD researchers, accomplished chemical engineers, field operators, welders, mechanics, and technicians all supported by a robust staff of human resource, legal, accounting and office professionals. We proudly encourage and celebrate the gender, age, ethnicity, and language diversity of our workforce which flows across all functions and levels of organizational responsibility. That it resulted naturally and effortlessly is a source of pride and joy. While our people bring wonderful diversity of background and experience to work, we come together at NuQuatic with a deeply shared sense of purpose and values. Our mission is our purpose. Our values are immutable. At NuQuatic we are:
At NuQuatic we take a holistic approach in evaluating our environmental impact. In everything we do, from the technologies we invent, to the products we design and produce, we strive to create the greatest benefit at the least environmental cost. We seek to be the environmental leader in producing clean water
Innovating For The Good
Our research, discoveries, technologies and the products and solutions they spawn are directed to the singular objective of achieving a lasting positive impact on our world for our and all future generations to come
Creating Exceptional Value For All
For us, authentic respect asks that we strive to seek the best in ourselves and in each other. We start with a presumption of ‘best intentions’ in our interactions with one another and we move forward. We acknowledge, as with our science, we will have disappointments on our way to making better versions of ourselves and each other. We ask simply that we see and know one another.
The challenge of our mission is enormous. The measure of our success is wholly dependent on our people and their unbridled commitment to achieving that mission and to each other every day. We encourage candid, respectful debate and dissent on the vital work we are engaged in. We take our work seriously rather than ourselves. We offer mutual respect and honor the contributions of each team member.
