Katadyn - Swiss company

The Swiss Katadyn company is the world’s Number One for individual water purification systems and products, with a global market share exceeding 50 percent. Katadyn has been developing water filters, chlorine and silver-based sterilizing agents, and mobile desalinators for the trekking and marine markets for over 80 years now. Numerous international relief organizations and special army units rely on the products of Katadyn for survival and life saving. The company has further diversified by adding two other outdoor market brands: “Trek’n Eat” – the Number One for outdoor and expedition foods in Europe – produces high-grade, freeze-dried specialty rations. The Swedish Optimus company – producer of outdoor stoves and accessories – joined the Katadyn Group at the end of 2007.

Katadyn is headquartered in Wallisellen-Zürich, Switzerland, and operates subsidiaries and sales offices in Germany, France, the U.S.A., Sweden, and Singapore. The group employs some 100 persons worldwide and achieved a turnover of roughly 38 million Swiss Francs in 2008.


Katadyn Expedition filters for typhoon-hit Taiwan

Making Water Drinkable

Typhoon Morakot slammed Taiwan on the weekend of August 8th with as much as 80 inches (two meters) of rain, inflicting the worst flooding the island has seen in at least a half-century. In order to provide safe drinking water to villagers and to avoid the spreading of water borne diseases, JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency), a long years partner of Katadyn, supported the area with 30 units of Expedition filters among other emergency supplies.

Water Quality

The World Health Organization (WHO) attributes 80% of all travel diseases to contaminated drinking water. Don’t let contaminated drinking water spoil your trip. Avoid tap water and ice cubes anytime the water quality is uncertain – even bottled water can be questionable, when available. According to WHO, almost half of all travellers suffer from some form of diarrhoea while en-route.

Good health while travelling starts with travel preparation – and the right Katadyn product for safe drinking water.
