Hellenbrand Inc., is a leading manufacturer of residential water treatment equipment in the United States.
Jim & Florence Hellenbrand founded Hellenbrand Water Conditioners, Inc. in August of 1967, with a focus on quality service and technical expertise.
Prior to establishing their water treatment dealership, Jim worked for Capital Water Softeners, serving plumbers throughout Dane County. Then the water treatment business presented Jim with an opportunity to build a sales organization and become his own boss.
As word of Hellenbrand’s product quality and service grew, so did his business; within a few years Hellenbrand rapidly outgrew their original location on Main Street in Waunakee, Wisconsin, and in 1974, Hellenbrand opened a 6,000 square foot shop at 509 West Main Street in Waunakee, Wisconsin.
Hellenbrand Water Conditioners is a family owned business in every sense of the word, as over the years Jim and Florence made sure their children put in their time at the family business, answering phones, building equipment and doing some installation and service work.
In the 1990’s Terry Hellenbrand researched for a better filtering system and in 1992 developed and received a patent for the Iron Curtain System; this technology is among the simplest, most economical and effective iron filters available. It removes iron, sulfur (rotten egg odor) and manganese from water.
In 1994, Jeff, Terry and Paul Hellenbrand bought the business from their parents and with that some changes; while Jim mainly sold residential products to plumbing contractors and wholesale houses located in Wisconsin, the business relied on a robust housing market. The next generation expanded to find outlets with other water treatment dealers and began to serve the commercial market.
Today, Hellenbrand Inc., is made up of two divisions, the Hellenbrand Water Center, where we provide water treatment service and products to end-users in and around Dane County and Hellenbrand Inc. a 25,000 square foot facility located in the Waunakee industrial park, where we manufacture a wide range of water treatment products for the residential, commercial and industrial water treatment markets.
Moving forward Hellenbrand is looking to continue to grow both locally with the Hellenbrand Water Center, and expand our water treatment dealer base which now covers twenty states by following the same business fundamentals that Jim & Florence started the business with some 40-years ago.
