Amway Earns Recognition for Long-Term Commitment to Scientific Excellence

NSF International recognizes company’s 30-year dedication to product certification and performance

Ada, MI (Aug. 28, 2017)  – Amway has recently received recognition for its 30-year commitment to product certification and performance in residential water treatment.

In 1987, Amway certified its first water treatment device with NSF International. Since then, Amway and NSF International have made a crucial impact on residential water treatment certifications through the co-development of new industry standards, as well as the expansion of existing standards.

“At Amway, collaborative spirit has always been a mainstay in supporting product certification and standards development,” said Catherine Ehrenberger, vice president of Amway R&D. “Through open innovation, we have been able to provide consumers with confidence in the performance of their eSpring products.”

The eSpring water purification system filters more than 160 potential contaminants, including lead, mercury, and pharmaceuticals.   

While much of the focus is on drinking water, the collaborative efforts between Amway and NSF International have extended into other product categories, including dietary supplements and home product standards and certifications.   

“We congratulate Amway on their 30 year commitment to consumer safety and public health as demonstrated by the NSF International certifications they hold for water treatment, home and nutrition products,” said Kevan Lawlor, President and CEO, NSF International. “We are so pleased to work with Amway as we share many of the same values including integrity and high ethical standards.”

The eSpring water purification system is sold exclusively by Amway Business Owners around the globe. To find more information regarding the availability of eSpring in your country, please visit www.amwayglobal.com.
