IDE Celebrates 50 Years of Providing High Quality Water Worldwide
IDE recently celebrated 50 years of achievement and excellence at a company weekend in Eilat. 250 employees in Israel and their families were invited to the jubilee celebration. The weekend included an evening of tribute to the company’s significant milestone, which featured a speech by CEO Avshalom Felber, a short film with highlights from IDE’s 50-year history, and a performance by leading artists.
In his speech, Mr. Felber referenced the company’s many achievements over the years, including helping solve Israel’s water shortage and erecting the world’s largest reverse osmosis (RO) desalination plants. He also expressed his gratitude toward all IDE employees, without whom the company would not have reached these achievements, and many more in the future.
The initial kernel of the desalination initiative started to take shape in 1958, and in May 1965 IDE was officially registered as a desalination company with the Company Registrar. Since then, the company has been involved in the development and construction of more than 400 desalination and industrial water treatment plants worldwide, delivering 3 million cubic meters of high quality water per day.
