ProEconomy have been granted a Royal Warrant by Appointment of Water Treatment Services to her Majesty The Queen.


Royal warrants are granted to companies who supply goods or services for at least five consecutive years to the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh or the Prince of Wales.

ProEconomy’s Managing Director, Byron Bedford says:

"We feel extremely proud that our water treatment system has received such prestigious recognition. We look forward to continuing our work with the Royal Household."

Founded in 1993, ProEconomy are a UK-based company that manufacture the Orca copper and silver ionisation system for the proven control of Legionella, Pseudomonas and other pathogens in water systems across the UK and Europe. 

Over the past 25 years, ProEconomy have installed their Orca system at some of the largest hospitals in the UK, such as Great Ormond Street Hospital and The Royal Free, and some of the most prestigious sites across Europe, such as the European Space Agency. As part of their copper and silver ionisation service, the water treatment company take pre- and post-commissioning samples at each of their sites. It is this testing that has generated collaborative long-term Legionella efficacy data and has developed ProEconomy’s prestigious reputation within the UK’s NHS and the European health sector.

Passionate about copper and silver ionisation, the company has a dedicated research and development department. This is led by Dr Birgitta Bedford, whose PhD in Legionella control provides a unique position and authority within the water treatment market.

One of only three companies included for copper and silver on the article 95 biocidal products directive, ProEconomy are compliant to sell copper and silver as a biocide. Meanwhile, their copper and silver ionisation system is regarded as a highly effective form of water treatment and has successfully controlled Legionella at every one of their sites.
