Amway is adding another plaque to its wall of accolades for its work in the Asia-Pacific market.

The Ada company has been recognized for the fifth consecutive year by the global "growth" conulting firm Frost & Sullivan for its water-treatment best practices in the Asia-Pacific region, which includes Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.

Amway said last week that it has received the 2014 Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Water Filtration Company of the Year award for its eSpring home water-treatment system.

Home water treatment

Amway said eSpring is the world's number-one-selling brand of home water-treatment systems.

The company noted several features that have made eSpring “a leader” in the industry.

The eSpring brand was the first system to combine a carbon-block filter and ultraviolet light with electronic-monitoring technology in the filter cartridge.

It uses patented eCoupled wireless-power technology to transmit electricity through air, water and plastic components to light the unit's UV lamp without direct-contact electrical connections.

It was the first to be certified for all 15 standard “NSF/ANSI 401 Emerging Contaminants,” which includes pharmaceuticals, pesticides and herbicides, in addition to certifications for more than 145 contaminants like lead and mercury.

Drinking water science

Frost & Sullivan and Amway emphasized the company’s commitment to healthy water and the Asia-Pacific region.

"We're using the scientific competency that our talented, dedicated scientists and engineers have amassed over more than 30 years in order to develop a better product for our customers," said Roy Kuennen, director of durables research and development, Amway. "We're also using that competency to advise regulators on policy regarding water-quality monitoring, raise the bar on industry standards for home water-treatment systems and improve the scientific knowledge of the broader water-treatment industry."

Amway's “continuous accomplishments in the Asia-Pacific water-filtration industry are well recognized,” said Janice Wung, research analyst for energy and environment, Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific.

Amway’s success in product performance and enhancement, R&D, consistency in product delivery and its “in-depth comprehension of the industry,” have led to its success, Wung said.

Wung expects to see Amway “achieve steady growth and further establish itself in the Asia-Pacific market."
