Toronto, ON, Canada – UV Pure Technologies, a manufacturer of technically advanced UV water purification systems for residential, industrial and municipal facilities, was recently named one of The Artemis Project’s Top 50 companies for innovative and sustainable water technologies.
UV Pure currently has more than 10,000 water treatment systems installed in North America, Australia and New Zealand, China and Brazil. Its customer base includes GE, Siemens, 3M Corporation, Premier Tech, Kinetico and Culligan. An aerospace version of a UV Pure Cross-fire UV disinfection system has been chosen by Boeing to purify water on the new 787 Dreamliner.
"The Artemis Top 50 is the water industry’s benchmark for recognizing innovation that will matter. It identifies the entrepreneurs, such as UV Pure Technologies, that are applying technology to meet the world's water challenges,” noted Laura Shenkar, principal at The Artemis Project. The 2011 competition brought together leading experts in the water industry to evaluate the technology solution, its value in application, and the companies’ core team.

We’re well-positioned and looking forward to helping our customers (both existing and new) meet their greatest water challenges.”
