Our Story

From humble beginnings in 1987 when Andrew Skilling started a small family business designing and installing bespoke wastewater treatment systems for rural dwellings without access to mains drainage, Mantair has grown to be one of the most established and recognised brands in the domestic septic tank and sewage treatment plant market.

Initially formed to focus on the design and manufacture of the ‘novel’ Mantair septic tank conversion unit, the Company has been the industry pioneer in septic tank upgrades and conversions since the introduction of the Mantair septic tank conversion unit in the late 1980’s.  The Company has evolved over the last three decades to provide a ‘one stop’ solution for all ‘off mains’ drainage applications.

The organisation became a ‘limited company’ in 1998. Andrew Skilling is still today Managing Director, with three of his sons now being Directors within the Company. The Company still today retains its ‘family owned’ status with all shares in the organisation being held by family members. This very ‘human and emotional’ aspect of the organisation creates the ‘family values’ that influence and provide the foundations of how the organisation operates.
