The Man Behind Emco Tech - The Michael Moon Story

This story begins like so many others who drink this water - with fantastic results.

Michael Moon was a wealthy man before he was introduced to magic of the water created by ionization technology. He had already made a fortune in the construction industry as a steel and concrete contractor who built high-rise towers in downtown Seoul. In addition, he owned a number of other companies across a variety of industries. As in all business timing is crucial to success, and he seemed to always be in the right place at the right time.

By the early 1980's the demands of being a successful businessman and entrepreneur had caused his health to decline. He had adult onset diabetes, hypertension and struggled with his weight. Out of concern, a good friend introduced Michael to alkaline water.

Within one year Michael had dropped about 80lbs, stabilized his blood sugar and gotten off the medication for his high blood pressure. He was stunned and needless to say quite excited by the results.

Being the savvy businessman with a knack for good timing, he looked at the fledgling market for ionization technology. He immediately saw the emerging movement of the technology from the commercial and medical applications of the low pH water toward drinking high pH or alkaline water for health benefits. At this time the market was almost entirely controlled by the Japanese. All the best scientists and engineers who were advancing the new ionization technology were Japanese. In addition most of the companies manufacturing ionization technology were Japanese.

Being Korean, Michael analyzed the newer and developing Korean marketplace. At this time there were a few small Korean companies who were beginning to manufacture ionization technology. In his search he found Jupiter Science, a medical equipment manufacturing company. Ionization had become licensed in Japan and later in Korea as a medical device and was being used in hospitals for wound and burn care and for its disinfecting properties. Jupiter Science as a medical equipment manufacturer was making ionization technology for medical applications. While the medical application business opportunity was good, Michael realized the staggering potential of the drinking water applications. He correctly determined that drinking water use of the technology would soon outpace and bury the medical equipment opportunity.

He went to Jupiter Science with a plan. His plan offered Jupiter Science a partnership investment of one half a billion Korean wan, approximately $10 million US dollars. That is 1982 dollars - today's equivalent investment would total approximately $30 million. The plan offered Jupiter Science the capital to fund the construction of a brand new state of the art manufacturing facility in Korea. This facility would go on to achieve ISO 9001 and 14001 certification, and become the largest ionizer assembly plant in the world capable of over 100,000 units per month.

The balance of the capital would be spent to fund the construction of another state of the art facility in Japan - where all the best ionization talent was. He would then hire some of the best and brightest ionization scientists and engineers to staff his new R&D operation. This Japanese facility was designed from the onset to become THE leading research and development force in the industry.

Advanced Electrode Testing

The Japanese facility would also become the manufacturing arm for the R&D, making the worlds most advanced electrode and membrane technology components - the crucial component in an ionizer. In exchange for these investments Michael's new company Emco Tech was granted the world-wide marketing rights for the ionizer brand.

Today, sales of Emco Tech ionizers total approximately 50,000 units per month, making them the world's largest manufacturer. Emco Tech cutting edge research and development continues to lead the industry in every area of advancement - producing the top performing and longest lasting ionization technology in the world today.
