Who we are
BURBULIUKAS & Co is a pioneering company in the field of electrochemical activation (ECA), specialising in the production of water ionisers for domestic use. Our headquarters and manufacturing facility are situated in Lithuania, but UK market operations are managed locally, through our subsidiary company B-LIFE Limited, based in London. This ensures quicker decision making, faster delivery, timely support and reliable warranty service.
In 2015 the Company introduced a new generation ADROP Silver water ioniser, designed exclusively for the UK market. Made in accordance with UK technological standards, the device takes full advantage of our experience and technological know-how. ADROP brand in the country is represented by our subsidiary B-LIFE Limited.
BURBULIUKAS & Co is the only producer in the EU to offer mobile domestic water ioniser with flat electrodes, featuring a unique water silvering function – a patented and certified invention. We have elaborated these exclusive features for 20 years, garnering the supreme expertise in the field along the way. Our entire range of water ionisers are made exclusively of environmentally friendly materials, including BPA-free plastic.
Sole proprietor enterprise BURBULIUKAS was founded.
After collecting all the required certificates, the first mobile water ioniser PTV with flat electrodes was officially patented. The device doesn’t have analogues in Europe.
During the years that followed, the technical quality of our water ionisers was constantly improved.
BURBULIUKAS & Co was recognized as the best manufacturer and service provider in the district of Panevezys, Lithuania.
The Company implemented the ISO: 9001 quality management system.
Two new water ionizer models – aQuator classic and aQuator silver – were developed and introduced.
A new generation water ioniser ADROP Silver, designed exclusively for the UK market, saw daylight.
In the meantime, the Company was continuously expanding its production capacity and market share. Our products, at first appreciated only by local consumers, gradually found a solid customer base in most European countries, Russia and the United States.
For preparation of silver water we use a special tool – 99.99% pure silver electrode. Only the highest standard silver is suitable, as other substances present in the composition of metal can leach into the water and get into the body, which must not be allowed to happen.
Quality water may be obtained only by means of special metals, suitable for electrolysis: iridium, titanium and ruthenium. Electrodes of our water ionisers are made of titanium, coated by iridium and ruthenium oxide mixture. These rare and precious metals warranty the topmost quality of the device.
During the years of our activity we have earned consumer appreciation locally and globally. As of today, the largest share (over 90%) of our production is exported. The exports go to such countries as Germany, Poland, Denmark, France, Belgium, Italy, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Latvia, Turkey, Great Britain, Ireland, United States of America, and Australia.
We are confident that the water produced by the top-of-the-line alkaline water machine will allow individuals and families to enjoy a healthier lifestyle all around the United Kingdom.
What we believe…
We believe in water as a source of life, well-being and general health. Water has special powers that promote revitalization, rejuvenation and even healing. However, not every type of water can naturally activate the vital energy of the body – this is something that only alkaline water saturated with negative ions can do.
We care for the health and well-being of our consumers and offer them the best quality product to enjoy the benefits of living water.
We advocate sustainable business practices and develop partnerships with producers of eco-friendly goods that are distinguished by great quality and are beneficial to people’s health.
We cherish our current partners and look forward to establishing lasting relationships with our customers, as each one of them is important to us.
How we started…
Our “love affair” with water ionisers started a long time ago and grew out of personal experience where injury and recuperation were involved.
The founder of the Company, one of the early Lithuanian businessmen Vytautas Kriove, picked an idea after undergoing a heavy trauma.
One hot summer day of 1988, hanging out with family and friends, he jumped head first from a footbridge into the lake. Alas, the water there was only knee-high. The fifth neck vertebra was fractured in five places. The following six months were spent lying on hospital bed paralysed from the neck down. The former sambo wrestler was fortunate enough to have well formed neck muscles, which saved his spinal nerve from severing. This supported the hope of recovering one day. Spending time in a supine position without movement took its toll pretty soon – the bedsores developed and they were resistant to treatment. A colleague, chemic by profession, offered Mr. V. Kriove to treat bedsores with ionised water, and the latter agreed. At first, ionised acidic water compress was applied to disinfect the sores, then ionised alkaline water lotion was kept to activate skin cell regeneration. The procedure was repeated five times a day. When after ten days bedsores disappeared, Vytautas Kriove pledged himself to find out more about ionised water.
However, it took some time for this experience to bear fruit. After spending years in timber business, in 1995, he decided to undertake the industrial production of domestic water ionisers, thus becoming a pioneer in the field in Lithuania.
Consumer problems we resolve…
Survey data shows that the majority of consumers in the UK think that tap water is neither clean, nor healthy, and spend around 2 billion pounds annually on bottled water (2013). By selling water ioniser for domestic use, we provide them with a tool to prepare quality water at home simply using tap water. Obtaining the device, consumers will receive significant health benefits and save their means in the long-term.
Another set of problems is related to consumer attitudes. Our market analysis shows that people don’t know very much about the advantages of ionised alkaline water, and even if they do, they tend to think that this is an expensive and inconvenient device. This attitude has an objective basis. UK market, in contrast to Asian, North American and other EU markets, doesn’t offer portable and economic and portable alkaline water machines for home use. ADROP water ionisers are a completely new product on the market. Their mobility and simplicity allow consumers to prepare healthy water for daily use.
