Lanaco, a New Zealand-based manufacturer of air filtration filter media, has been recognised as an “Up & Coming” Company in The Sir Callaghan 100 Report.

Lanaco was founded following the words and principles of the late Sir Paul Callaghan. We are therefore immensely proud to be recognised at the 2023 Callaghan 100 report release event as one of the 18 “Up and Coming” New Zealand companies which are working towards making the vision for New Zealand’s economic and social betterment come true.

The report excerpt commends Lanaco by saying, “Lanaco’s high-performance, air-filtering products are made sustainably with wool from Kiwi sheep and used in appliances, electronics, and industrial and respiratory ventilation; the company’s sustainability credentials have created strong international interest in its technology.”

Following the recognition of 16 now globally successful leading companies such as Rocket Lab, Aroa Biosurgery and LanzaTech, the “Up and Coming” category aims to recognise and acknowledge other companies already making their mark through world-beating ideas and a dedication to innovation, research and development — qualities akin to those possessed by companies chosen for The Sir Paul Callaghan 100 Report.

“We are delighted to be recognised as an Up & Coming Company in The Sir Callaghan 100 Report,” said Nick Davenport, Founder and CEO of Lanaco. “This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and it reflects our commitment to developing innovative and sustainable products.”

Lanaco’s EcoStatic® filter media is already being used in a variety of applications, including rangehoods, ventilation systems, and industrial filters. The company is also developing new products that use EcoStatic® to improve air quality in other areas, such as in vehicles and buildings.
