Prospect Water Co. LLC

Lombard, Illinois

Prospect Water Co. provided water treatment products and services to household and commercial customers through independently franchised dealers.

  • Prospect Partners teamed with management and independent equity sponsor Stone Pointe, LLC, of Naperville, Ill., to acquire 11 company-owned dealers of Culligan International in October, 2011, and form Prospect Water Co.
  • Culligan, founded in 1936, distributes its products and services globally primarily through independently franchised dealers. As the top brand in the water treatment market, Culligan is the natural choice for consumers and businesses facing 'hard water' or other 'problem' water issues. Its products include water softeners, water filtration systems, bottled water, and other related products and services.
  • Prospect Water Co. subsequently bought and integrated more than 20 add-on acquisitions of other Culligan franchises, independent water service dealers, and providers of commercial and industrial water purification services, including:
