Remembering Tony Marchesini of H20

The franchise community extends its heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Tony Marchesini – the previous owner of H2O International SA and long standing FASA member.

H2O International SA has the longest proven track record and over 21 years’ experience in providing South Africans with the very best water and air purification systems.

Tony Marchesini, founder of H2O International SA, was inspired to start H2O when he became aware of the huge difference a water purifier could make not only to the taste and colour of the water but to the health and well-being of people drinking this water.

H2O International SA provides over 450 purification products to the home, office, hospitality, and agricultural industries and has dedicated service teams and more than 60 franchisees and distributors throughout South Africa and Africa.

He recently sold the brand to BTW and decided to retire.
He had an incredible mindset in business; he was a top-class entrepreneur creating a new brand when opportunity arose.

He was involved in the Franchising of Italtile and later H2O international and LightSpa.

I worked with him on two brands and was inspired by his foresight and entrepreneurial spirit.

Tony was always upbeat and positive.

I will miss Tony Marchesini dearly, he was an inspiration to me, and I am sure he positively influenced many other lives.

They say everybody is replaceable, but you were not everybody.
