Eric Fink has recruited a small dynamic professional team to innovate, design and construct some of the world's finest hyperbaric equipment.
Managing Director - Founder & owner
Eric Fink is a transplanted American Engineer (now Australian and American) who has been involved in the offshore diving and medical hyperbaric fields for his entire career. He founded Fink International/Fink Engineering in 1987 an Australian owned and operated company which now leads the world in the design and supply of Rectangular Hyperbaric Facilities for the medical industry.
He is a chartered Engineer in Australia and a Registered Professional Engineer in the USA and excels at innovative design.
He was also responsible for the design and construction of more than 23 saturation diving systems over the years culminating in the winning of the Australian
