Anders Larsson founded GLOW (Globalwater) in 2003.

Born in Sweden in 1961, Mr. Larsson studied engineering in one of Sweden’s prestigious universities, the Royal Institute of Technology (Kungliga Tekniska Högskola) in Stockholm. He graduated in 1986 with a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Consequently, it was followed by a successful career in the world’s leading company of household and kitchen appliances, Electrolux. He has designed and developed products, which are patented and are being produced and successfully sold world-wide by leading companies in the household industry. His work has led him to different parts of the world leading manufacturing and development units in Asia and Europe.

Anders Larsson's expertise and know-how in water purification is vouched by 15 years of hands-on experience. He has worked and lived in Spain, Mexico, Italy and the Philippines, places where potable water is a major problem.

According to the founder:

During my years living in Latin America, USA and Asia, I have seen and experienced the daily problem of providing potable water to the household. I also came to realize and understand this need of millions of people. In different periods, I boiled, bought bottled water and used several water purifiers. Using an efficient water purifier was definitely the best alternative for me and other families. However, it was expensive, difficult to maintain and required regular service by a specialist, which is often very time consuming. This is why I was inspired to develop a water purifier which is more effective, easy to maintain and affordable to many.

Having experienced and learned the important aspects of how the ideal water purifier should be, Globalwater's internationally patented GLOW Uv400 became a reality. Behind the development of GLOW Products is a network of engineers, industrial designers, manufacturers, distributors and investors.
