News Yet another quality franchisee joins the H2O International family: Paarl will be getting a taste of the best, purified water in SA. October 27, 2017 Jan-Louis and Leandri du Toit are the dynamic team behind H2O International SA’s latest franchisee based in Paarl. The husband and wife team was drawn to SA’s no. 1 water purification company thanks to H2O International SA’s core belief that drinking purified water is arguably the first step towards living healthily. The deteriorating quality of drinking water in the Western Cape encouraged the Du Toits to buy into the business to be a source of safe, healthy and great tasting drinking water for the Paarl community during the drought. Jan-Louis and Leandri both come from a corporate background. Leandri holds a Bachelors Degree in Logistics and Jan-Louis is an Industrial Engineer and has completed his MBA. The new franchisee owners are well experienced in procurement, supply chain management, food processing and project management including supply chain analysis and capital expenditure projects. As far as hobbies go, Leandri commented, “At this stage, our passions and hobbies are distant memories due to the demands of raising a young family. However, Jan-Louis enjoys paddling and has completed both the Dusi and Berg River canoe marathons. He also enjoys a round of golf and making a ‘potjie’ every now and again. I relish the opportunity and privilege to be a mommy, and discover the required super powers on a daily basis. I have also recently discovered a passion and talent for baking and decorating birthday cakes.” H2O International SA’s 23 years of experience and success matched the long-term strategy of the Du Toits. When discussing future plans, the couple are committed to supplying excellent water purification products to the community to enjoy safe drinking water at their homes and offices. “Our physical presence in town will provide peace of mind to the local community that we will be able to back-up and support the products they buy”, stated Leandri. “The state-of-the-art water filtration system that is installed in the store will also be a source of safe, healthy and great-tasting drinking water for the community during the drought.” “The Paarl’ites are also physically very active”, she continued. “We look forward to getting involved with the numerous sporting and cultural events taking place in and around Paarl all year round.” Join SA’s no.1 purification company and ride the wave of success.
