INTERSPIRO began its existence as a part of AGA – a multinational industrial group started in 1904 by Swedish Nobel laureate Gustaf Dalén. Early on AGA diversified from navigation aids and gas to a wide range of core related products, including regulators to save gas in AGA's lighthouses. These regulators found their way into applications for the medical field and for respiratory protection in the 1920's.
In the second half of the 1940's breathing equipment – for firefighting and diving – had become a recognized product range and due to the technological level of AGA many new and advanced innovations saw the light of day.
In 1974 AGA Spiro was formed as a part of AGA's medical division. In 1983 AGA concentrated its company portfolio, AGA Spiro become INTERSPIRO and left the AGA company sphere. In 1979 the companies in Germany and Austria was incorporated, in 1983 the UK company and shortly thereafter companies in the Netherlands and Switzerland. In 1985 INTERSPIRO started a company in USA and in 2002 a company in Malaysia to cover the Asia/Pacific region.
INTERSPIRO’s goal in the design of respiratory protection is to satisfy customer needs in regard to safety, performance, reliability and quality. Our customers work in tough environments, under extreme conditions, and the life support system must cater for these conditions – allowing the operator to concentrate on the task at hand. With this philosophy INTERSPIRO has developed many revolutionary solutions that have dramatically improved our customers working conditions.
