Alan Liefting founded Ecotech Services in 2002 after working in the technology trades for over twenty years. Initially the company carried out the repair, refurbishment, and sales of computer monitors and power supplies. Some advocacy in trying to address the e-waste issue in New Zealand was also done.
We are now a specialist in the various environmental issues relating to electronics and computer technology. Our aim is to achieve zero waste to landfill for electronics, electrical, and computer products and we do this with a combination of repair, refurbishment, and recycling.
Alan Liefting has over twenty five years of electronics, electrical, electromechanical, and computer experience in various sectors of the technology trades. He is a registered Electrical Appliance Serviceperson, has NZCE in Electronics and Computer Technology, a Bachelor of Environmental Management, and has a Secondhand Dealers certificate.
Megan Hieatt carries out a variety of general and IT related administration tasks at Ecotech Services. She has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Environmental) and Graduate Diploma in Information Systems, as well as other diploma qualifications in the health sector. Megan has spent her career in conservation, IT, and health.
Angus Philips specialises in all IT equipment repairs and refurbishment, as well as product evaluation and costings. He is self taught in a wide range of IT related matters.
Ecotech Services believes that as well as being ethical in terms of actual trading, businesses should give support to the community where possible. To this end we have given, or give ongoing support, to the following organisations:
- Molten Media Community Trust
- Starship Foundation (via the mobile phone recycling scheme which no longer operates)
- New Zealand Vintage Machinery Club
- Kiwis for Kiwi (via our Trade Me auctions)
- Kilmarnock Enterprises
- Creative Junk
- Freecycle on the Christchurch group
- Trees for Canterbury through their Carbon Calculator which links to a tree donation and community planting initiative
- Saint Vincent De Paul, Hornby – supply of computer spares
The level of support is minor. We hope to continue with it into the foreseeable future, although the vagaries of the economy and a desire to grow our business means that our level of commitment to it may vary.
