Trish Butler

Trish Butler

Company Director

When we say SaniPod™ is designed by women – Trish is that woman.  With an eye for detail and sharp intuition, she’s a huge part of the reason Pure Concepts continues to evolve and improve today. Trish’s drive for continuous improvement was a key factor in the success of her and Ray’s company – Fumacare/Fumapest Limited.

Ray Butler

Company Director

With 40 pioneering years in the hygiene service industry to his name, Ray successfully established New Zealand’s largest owned hygiene and pest control company, Fumacare/Fumapest Limited, alongside his partner Trish. He’s a true people person who continues to drive our company today while changing the face of hygiene globally.

Originally from Brisbane, Darren knows everything there is to know about SaniPod™. He’s been involved with the range since the 2004 launch, and played key roles in sales, R&D, and the creation of Pod™ Classic and Pod™ Petite.  Before hygiene Darren’s first love was numbers – which he channelled through stockbroking in Brisbane and London.

Peter Soares

Finance & Logistics Director

When he’s not busy crunching numbers and ensuring the smooth delivery of our orders, Peter is an integral part of our R&D team and a crucial link with our manufacturing partners.  With 23 years in the hygiene industry as General Manager of Fumacare/Fumapest Limited and 16 years strong financial experience, he’s the perfect man for the job.
