The company was founded in 2010 by CEO Alexander Vanlerberghe. He was wondering why we still buy bottled water when there is so much tap water available. Initially, he only distributed tap water coolers to companies, but soon he was asked whether the systems also existed for homes. So, he came up with an answer: a kitchen tap offering no less than five different types of water: cold and hot tap water, still and sparkling drinking water and boiling water.

The idea is simple: tap water without strange tastes or smells, from a tap that fits perfectly into your interior, as it is available in different styles. And the systems are also good for your health, because you drink more water if you always have it at your disposal. Alexander's wife Niki, who now also works at AQUALEX, says enthusiastically: "Once you have one of these taps in your home, you can't and don't want to miss it. When we were travelling recently, we once again noticed how many bottles we actually have in our fridge - and which we throw away.”
AQUALEX already counts 80 motivated employees and continues to grow. AQUALEX has already been nominated six times as Trends Gazelle, an award for companies with added value for the economic landscape. "Individuals, companies and healthcare institutions are increasingly aware of the comfort that our devices offer," explains Alexander. "They no longer have to drag around bottles of water, always have freshly filtered water at their disposal and they do their bit for the environment", he concludes.
