Water purification and filtering systems for the global market – 3 production facilities with 600 employees, total investments of 30 MEUR.

President Toomas Hendrik Ilves was at Aquaphor to open their second production facility in 2014: "The water filters produced in Narva will be firstly exported to the European Union countries and then to the US and Canada. As Aquaphor's Estonian subsidiary Westaqua Invest said, the geographical location and lack of customs barriers solves all logistical problems and helps shorten delivery times."

Aquaphor invested 20 MEUR in production expansion with the help of Large Investor Support Scheme in 2018.
