EQUA was founded in 1995 by two brothers Tanel and Janno Joost. Today, a small company with two employees has developed into one of the largest manufacturers of medical equipment in Estonia. More than 70% of the company’s production is exported, mainly to Ireland, Germany, England, Norway, Finland and Sweden. Production is located in Tartu in 2000 m2 production facilities.

EQUA’s mission is to provide medical institutions with the best solutions for furnishing their premises and choosing work equipment. EQUA’s production is divided into three areas: medical products (invacare products, examination tables, bedside cabinets), physiotherapy equipment (massage tables, physiotherapy tables) and veterinary products (operating tables, examination tables). In addition to the EQUA brand, the company also owns the SOFT TEMP brand, which produces disposable thermometer covers that are marketed across Europe. 

In addition to manufacturing its own products, the company also uses its wide range of production technology to subcontract metal and upholstery work.

European Regional Development Fund

On 4th of October 2017 EQUA took up an ambitious 3 year product development plan for which co-financing of 288 000 euros was requested from the Enterprise Estonia. Approved “Equa development plan” No. EU51846 is supported by the European Regional Development Fund through a support measure of the Enterprise development Programme. Within the framework of the long-term development plan, the company develops a number of innovative and high-value physiotherapy and veterinary products. In addition, the company’s export capacities in foreign markets are significantly increased. According to EQUA development programme 2019-2020 No.EU53376 additional support was requested for the continuation of product development in the amount of 194 418 euros.

Business ethics

EQUA’s reputation and credibility are our greatest assets, which determine our day-to-day behavior in relationships with our customers and suppliers. Uncompromising business ethics is an integral part of EQUA’s daily work. We consider this as an important aspect of our family business success story.

Yours sincerely,

Tanel Joost
