Services:Manufacture and Supply of Water Equipment
Water from Air is an entity based in the Northern parts of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. Its core focus is the development, manufacture and supply of equipment that draws moisture from the atmosphere, condenses and purifies it into pure drinkable water.The smallest machine, which is able to produce approximately 32 litres a day is a popular choice for offices and residential homes, the bigger machine is assembled in Johannesburg by a contracted company and delivered to customers by Water from Air. The company provides full technical support for all machines including installation, maintenance and any other technical assistance clients may require.
Water from Air approached Seda's Quality and Standards unit requesting assistance with the development and implementation of ISO 9001:2015. This was seen as a key strategic decision by senior management of the company to not only implement the ISO 9001 systems but to further seek formal certification of the QMS by a credible independent certification body, which would ensure that clients have confidence in the entity's ability to offer products and services that meet their expectation.A specialist consultant was contracted by Seda to assist the entity with the process of QMS implementation in 2016. Approximately a year later the consultant followed up with the process of a pre-certification gap audit to assist the entity in getting to a level where QMS would be certified by an independent certification body.
Two years after the gap audit in February 2018, Water from Air's QMS was certified by TUV Rheiland, as fully compliant to the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 standards. Since then the business has experienced significant growth, having recently commissioned a water bottling line, which will increase the output of production by twofold. More growth is expected in the short to medium-term due to adverse climatic conditions that have given rise to droughts. Water from Air currently employs a staff compliment of 8 people.
