History of Culligan
Over 85 Years of Service
Culligan's legacy is one of innovation. Since our founding in 1936 in Illinois, United States, our pioneering approach to water treatment and service has helped us grow from a local business to a global leader. Today, with over 35 brands in 90 countries, we continue to build on that legacy with a commitment to creating new ways to bring better water where it’s needed most.
We recently celebrated our 85th anniversary, which means nearly a century of helping families and communities get the cleaner, safer water that helps them thrive.
