What we do
Strauss Water (of the Strauss Group) is a world leading expert in water, offering top quality, great tasting, purified drinking-water solutions. We develop, produce and market environmentally-friendly, heating and cooling WaterBars for in-home and business use. We have multiple patents in water treatment and purification, heating and cooling and holds numerous quality assurance standards including the American Water Quality Association (WQA) . We enjoy successful collaborations worldwide, including with Haier Group in China and The Virgin Group in the UK.
We’ve been taking care of water for over 40 years. It all started in 1971 when Tana Industries was founded at Kibbutz Netiv Halemed Heh in Israel. Oddly enough, the factory started as a manufacturer of metal parts for the electronics industry. Four years later, when Tana Industries acquired a plant for the manufacture of water cooling appliances, things began evolving.
In 1978 we purchased an innovative water purification technology from the Technion Institute of Technology and so began development of the very first water purification appliance – the Tami3 (Part of the deal we signed with the Technion stated that the new appliance would have to be named “Tami”, after the daughter of the professor who developed the technology). Launched in 1987, the Tami4 was patented in the US and became the gold standard in home water purification systems in Israel and transformed Tana Industries (known as Tami4) into Israel’s market leader for drinking water solutions for households and businesses.

In the mid-2000s, Strauss Group identified the drinking water category as a significant strategic opportunity in keeping with the Group's mission to create wonders out of basics. In 2007, the Group invested in the H2Q venture, which was initially established as a joint venture between Strauss and a group of scientists and entrepreneurs to develop water purification technologies. In 2009, Strauss Group acquired Tana Industries and established Strauss Water, a merger between H2Q and Tana.
