USAID ERA helps manufacturer of water filters to increase production capacity

25 March 2024

On March 21, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink, Director of the USAID Economic Growth Office in Ukraine Kim Kim Yee, and other representatives of USAID Ukraine and the USAID Economic Resilience Activity (USAID ERA) visited the production facilities of a Ukrainian company manufacturing water filtration systems. The company’s production workshop and warehouse were partially destroyed by Russian troops in March 2022. 

To help restore production, USAID ERA purchased two modern injection molding machines, which the company used to begin manufacturing household water pitchers and filter cartridges. This will enable Ukrainian households to purify water at home, and support the company to increase their volume of production. USAID’s support will provide employment for 26 people, increase the number of water treatment products, and allow the company to reach their pre-war production levels.
