On March 5, 2014, International Water Company hosted a delegation from Monrovia, Liberia, which included the city’s Mayor, Clara Doe Mvogo, and other government officials. The country continues to search for ways to give their citizens clean water and heard about International Water Company’s portable water purification machines as a solution to end this struggle.

International Water Company (IWC) is a York county based manufacturer who takes pride in their main mission: to give clean drinking water to children everywhere. In 2010, the company was launched to provide a solution for just that. From that idea sparked two versions of the Mobile Water Purification System (MWPS). The smaller MWPS can pump 2.5 gallons per minute and the larger can pump 18 gallons per minute. The MWPS machine can operate not only from a generator, but also from solar or wind power. Other unique factors include a simple set up, a backup system in every machine, and only one replacement part, which extras are included.

The Mobile Water Purification System...
... can be solar powered ...
... or can be wind powered!

International Water Company decided to make the event a “grand opening celebration” after hearing the Liberian delegation will be visiting. Stephen Strachan, CEO and Managing Partner, and Marc Ward, COO, welcomed everyone, thanked them for attending, and read letters of congratulation by Governor Tom Corbett and US Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey. Tours of the facility and demonstrations of the machines occurred during the afternoon. IWC has demonstrated their machines in several different countries, including China and Mexico, and has several installations overseas. IWC remains hopeful that this trip will spark interest for the Monrovia, Liberian officials to purchase one of their purification machines in the near future.
