About us

Keith Lees has been conducting flow and pressure testing as Hydraulic Testing and Certification since 2006. Dan purchased the business in 2015 with the aim to maintain Keith’s reputation in the industry. Since 2015 we have built a small but dedicated team who use the most up to date technology and equipment to offer a consistent and high quality service. 

Dan cut his teeth maintaining pressure vessels for a Global Integrity team in the explosives manufacturing industry. He is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer (RPEQ and CPEng) with a theoretical understanding of fluid dynamics and a practical understanding of fire hydrant systems and AS2419. He is continuing to learn and is always appreciative of support from more experienced members of the industry. 

HTC believes in the small but valuable role we play supporting our clients in all things relating to fire hydrants and reticulation mains.

Giving back

Working with the Shantipara Association for Education, HTC donates a small percentage of our profits to children in the remote town of Satkhira, Chittagong District in Bangladesh. Donations have contributed to books, bags and stationary to help increase the level of education in this regional location. The intent is to support people that value resources that we in Australia, take for granted.

The Shantipara Association for Education was established in 2009 and their first target was for "no child to miss Primary School (grade 1 to 5)”. That goal has now been achieved and 100% of the children in the area are completing Primary School. More exciting is that four students have graduated from college and two have returned to help teach the students.
