Coway is a South Korean company established in 1989. It started as a door-to-door sales business and eventually established a research institute and built a plant.
Since then it has grown massively as a supplier of consumer goods like water purifiers, bidets, mattresses, and air purifiers.
The company employs almost 5000 people and has head offices for different services in three cities of Korea.
These are Yugu (water and air purifiers, filter carbon), Pocheon (recycle and refurbish), and Incheon (bidet, water softener, juicer).
Coway was ranked first in the market capitalization growth rate among Korea’s top 500 companies in 2015.

This air purifier from Coway has a clean air delivery rate of 303 cubic feet per hour. This makes it suitable for areas that measure 355 square feet or 33 meters square.
It features an ECARF Siegel certified filter technology with three stages.
The first is a Pre-Filter that takes away dust, hair, and pet dander. Next, a patented Urethane Carbon Filter removes harmful gases and bad odors from the air.
Finally, a Green Anti-Flu HEPA Filter cleans up cigarette smoke, viruses, germs, and micro-dust.
A Smart Air Control System enables it to operate at optimal speeds. It senses the degree of pollution in indoor air and indicates the air quality through one of four colors.
A filter change indicator lets users know when it is time to replace the HEPA and deodorizing filters.
Both have a life of 8500 hours. There’s a one-touch adjustment system to switch between four possible speeds. The noise level, depending on the selected speed, ranges from 22 to 49 dB.
This model also features a mood lamp for convenience and aesthetics. It comes with a 5-year warranty on the motor and a 1-year warranty on electrical parts.
