Whooshh Innovations was founded in 2007 and set out to develop a new tube transport system upon which many novel industry applications can be enabled and deployed. We are a privately held company, and have funded years of R&D, through private investment, joint ventures, strategic relationships, and industry and government grants and/or loans. We have been fortunate to develop a substantial patent portfolio in the process. WHOOSHH is a dynamic company located in Bellevue, WA, USA. It was founded on the belief that there need to be more efficient ways to move delicate objects, perishable fruit and proteins, and live fish from one point to another, regardless of the height to be lifted or the weight of the object to be transported. The result is an object transport system that allows you to transform many of your operations, and challenges many of your assumptions.

With WHOOSHH, batching and carrying by hand is no longer required. Information can be derived by scanning the object as it enters the
Whooshh system, and decisions about where to deliver the object can be made before it exits.
Whooshh systems require less floor space, less water, less power, less maintenance, and less capital investment, which all adds up to giving you more for less. Plus, Whooshh systems are just so magical to watch, when you have one, your customers and constituents will know you are a leader in your field.
The Northwest offers a great entrepreneurial environment for new ideas. Seattle/Bellevue has been the home of many successful companies: Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon, Costco, Starbucks, and now the world champion Seattle Seahawks, to name a few. When we think about the impact we can have on food suppliers, energy and transportation providers, water managers, and the environment, taken together we think we are part of something pretty special.
In 1863 there was great fanfare around the first 'Tube' in London. Shortly after, Thomas Edison and Nicholas Tesla, two great innovators, battled in the 'War of Currents', between alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC), culminating in the first major AC hydroelectric plant at Niagara falls, in New York. 150 years later, in 2013, Elon Musk has made headlines with his electric cars and his ideas of a Hyperloop transport system. What happened in between? Henry Ford popularized the automobile, Interstate hi-ways were built, Boeing commercialized the airplane, and to move information better, the internet and the information superhighway was conceived. Transporting stuff efficiently is really important, as is the clean energy to power the movement of things more efficiently.
Well known products for transporting people, processed foods, and information have been critical to our economic growth worldwide. Yet surprisingly, industry has not much advanced the state of the art of moving live and/or highly perishable product over short distances, from point A to point B. Much is still done by hand, and that which is not, is often done in bulk, relegating industries such as food (No. 1) and energy (No. 2), the two largest industries in the world, to antiquated and inefficient processes.
Whooshh transport systems cost effectively re-invent the way we move certain objects (particularly when live or fresh) and by doing so, provides a platform for new applications and solutions, that will decrease waste, improve yield and quality, and enable use of our natural resources for their most productive uses, all while decreasing the environmental footprint. Apple changed the world when they asked us to 'Think Different'. We ask you to 'Think Again'. Should you Whooshh? We think so. Should you wait? We think not. We got this Dam thing figured out.
