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.
