Our History

Our history dates back to 2005, when the two telecommunications engineers Ion Esandi and Patxi Fabio joined forces to apply their professional knowledge for the benefit of others. They developed technology systems for the automotive industry that helped intellectually disadvantaged people perform their work with a 100% quality guarantee. Some time later, in 2009, the company was founded with the intention of providing its services to other groups of people and industries. From then on, the company acted as a consulting firm for companies whose products stood for the paradigm of universal usability and accessibility.

In 2015, after several years of independence, they founded another company - Lifeak S.L. - and thereby fulfilled a long-standing dream: design, development, manufacture and finally the market launch of their first own product, which not only made the lives of many people easier and more comfortable, but was also intended to be entirely under the sign of sustainability and innovation. With the Valiryo Body Dryer – a fully automatized body drying device that finds application both in the wellness and nursing field – they did not only create a technical innovation. They also built the foundation for an ecological and future-oriented everyday life when it comes to hygiene and body care. Under the leadership of Mr. Esandi, the young and ambitious start-up subsequently managed to successfully master numerous challenges - such as financing, further development, production and, last but not least, worldwide patenting of the product. With a limited budget, but all the greater willpower and unbridled enthusiasm, various certifications and classifications were obtained in order to move step by step closer to the vision of global accessibility of the product.

In form of the Valiryo GmbH, Valiryo founded its first joint venture in Germany in early 2019. Based in South Hess, the company is primarily responsible for representing and developing our brand in the German speaking countries, the Nordics as well as the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

After already establishing several international distribution partnerships in the past, Valiryo plans to build up additional local subsidiaries in different countries in the near future – thereby making the vision of global adoption come true, step by step.
