Culligan expands their Cranbrook water bottle manufacturing plant
The bottles come in two sizes, are recyclable, carry a 20 cent deposit and can be returned to your local bottle depot.
One of the most dynamic and fast-growing businesses in the Kootenays is owned and operated by Cranbrook’s Murray Floyd and his wife Sherri. The Floyd’s own and operate three businesses – Culligan Water Conditioning, Beachcomber Hot Tubs and Flaman Fitness and Recreational Products.
In addition to selling top-of-the-line products and services, the Culligan division has recently expanded their water bottling facility with state-of-the-art equipment—last year an ice-making plant was added to their lineup.
One area the company has seen tremendous development in is their bottle manufacturing capabilities.
“Four years ago, I was involved with a group of business owners from across Canada who wanted to produce their own bottles. Without hesitation, I was ready to jump in. It was a really long process as we had to make sure everything was CSA approved, however, we now have a fully operational bottle manufacturing plant right in Cranbrook. In fact, the only other ones like this are in Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg and Ottawa. Culligan now produces 11 L and 15 L one way bottles that are recyclable, carry a 20 cent deposit and can be simply returned to your local bottle depot. We currently have them available in Costco on the coast, Canadian Tire locally, plus we are starting to put them in grocery stores up the valley and around our area.”
Watch as this dynamic Cranbrook-based company continues to expand in the near future.
