The team

TEQOYA is a French company present on the whole French territory and internationally through our partners. Since 2015, we design and manufacture air purifiers locally.
Energy-efficient, comfortably silent, without ozone emissions, without disposable filters, without programmed obsolescence... we are committed to designing products that are healthy and friendly to you and to the planet!

Our products Our technology

Did you know?

  • We inhale 12,000 liters of air per day
  • 90% of the air we breathe is inside buildings
  • Indoor air is 8 times more polluted than outdoor air

Air pollution reduces life expectancy worldwide by an average of nearly three years, according to Cardiovascular Research. It is also known that we inhale most of this air pollution indoors (our homes, workplaces) rather than outdoors. This is what we call background air pollution: small amounts that we take in continuously, with each breath.

Our mission

To purify the air in enclosed spaces 24/7, TEQOYA does it daily while preserving your health and the planet, thanks to our eco-friendly air purification solutions.

TEQOYA improves the long-term health of people by providing permanent indoor air pollution protection. Our air purifiers are designed to work 24/7 and so to ensure healthy air at all times.

TEQOYA sens du nom

TEQOYA links the notion of technology (tech.) and the power of nature (Sequoia*) while evoking healthy air.

* The Sequoia purifies the air by emitting ions through its needles.

A bit of history

A few years before creating TEQOYA, Pierre Guitton (its future founder), whose daughter suffers from asthma, tested and experienced the benefits of an air ionization system developed by Jacques Breton. Professor at the University of Bordeaux and member of the New York Academy of Sciences, Jacques Breton spent more than 15 years studying air ionization: the generation of negative ions in the purest environments on the planet, and their action on aerosols. He developed this new technology to emit large amounts of negative ions without generating ozone or any other hazardous chemical substances. However, his technology remained largely unnoticed for several years. In 2014, during a peak in air pollution in Paris, Pierre Guitton decided to create TEQOYA and share this technology with as many people as possible.

Local manufacture

Our main goal is to design and manufacture of eco-friendly products. To do so, we ensure the respect of the planet at each step. That's why we have chosen to manufacture our products locally.

In fact, TEQOYA designs and manufactures its air purifiers in France and partly in the Spanish Basque Country, always less than 500 km from its factory in Villandraut (Bordeaux region, France).

baudry

Company based in the Pays de la Loire region and the French leader in the technique of multi-support and multi-coating. The wood used in our air purifiers comes from a certified and eco-friendly industry.

outinov

Company located in Angers, specialized in the development of tools and the manufacture of high-quality technical parts. The plastic used for the casing of our products is 100% recyclable and the proportion of recycled material is increasing regularly thanks to the development of new channels in France.

smurfit kappa

Based in Villandraut, this company is the european leader in the paper-based packaging sector. The packaging of our products is also eco-responsible: raw, reusable and consumes as little ink as possible.

ajc_sitec

Other than our plant in Villandraut, the assembly is also carried out by AJC Développement (Angers, France) and by SITEC (San Sebastian, Spain).

We control each step of the production, assembly and quality process of our products. Some steps are carried out internally in our factory or outsourced, depending on product references and volumes.

Thus we value the know-how of local companies to permanently combine product quality and take into account the environmental impact throughout the life cycle of our air purifiers.

One tree planted for every TEQOYA air purifier ordered on our website !

plantons

TEQOYA wishes to go even further to off-set the carbon impact associated with the manufacture of its air purifiers: committed alongside the association Plantons pour l'avenir*. Thanks to 2021 sales, more than 5,000 trees will be planted in France throughout 2022.

*Plantons pour l'avenir is an endowment fund that supports reforestation projects in France.
