The aQysta Story

aQysta is on a Quest. aQysta strives to develop technologies that provide economic benefits without hampering the environment and can empower the society towards prosperity: Innovating for Impact! And aQysta starts the quest with the most vital essential ingredient for life and civilization: Water!
Global Mindset
We are an international team which believes the whole world is our playing field. We aim to grow to become a global sales- global sourcing company, implementing our products all over the world.
True sustainability
While being “green” can be a great feat in itself, in order to truly have a positive impact and righteously call ourselves a sustainable company, we also measure sustainability on a human scale. The only way to achieve this is to build a financially sustainable entity.That is what we call a true sustainability.
We believe in the power of technology to provide solutions to everyday problems that the world faces. We aspire to develop these technological solutions and bring to the market.
We are not a charity, we think that people should feel responsible for improving their own wellbeing. We offer people tools that allow than to take this responsibility and make it their own.
Sustainable business
We believe in building a sustainable business that is financially profitable, and creates a positive environmental and social impact. We do not believe that these things are mutually exclusive.

Products for People

Farmer aQysta is on a Quest to make the future a brighter one for people around the globe. Since water is the essential ingredient of both life and civilization, this is where we start. By developing essential products that truly have the potential to impact the lives of people on a global scale, we want to create a people-centered business. Rather than providing things for free, we aim to include our target audience in all aspects of our process in order to create products of real value that instill a sense of pride of ownership and responsibility in our customers. To us, this kind of empowerment is what drives development.

Global Reach

Global reach We have successfully implemented the Barsha pump across Asia, Africa and Europe. Daily, we get requests for the product from all around the world. We are forming distribution partnerships to reach to more countries and expand our reach globally.

We envision to have tens of thousands of Barsha pumps floating in rivers around the world, providing irrigation water, without polluting the environment and at zero operating costs.
