Who we are

Genera is a completely Australasian owned company specialising in the provision of Biosecurity Treatments, Pest Control and Fumigation. 

Genera was established as a family business in 1975, Genera is still 100% family owned, providing services from bases in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, New Caledonia and Thailand. We also travel throughout the world providing expert advice and biosecurity solutions wherever our expertise is needed. 

Genera Fumigation expanded to Australia from New Zealand in 2003 and now has established operations throughout all the states in Australia. 

Genera are recognised internationally as leaders in provision of phytosanitary treatment and we take pride being able to provide solutions that exceed best practice and set new boundaries for what is achievable.
