Culligan Training With Michael HiestonThe partnership between Fred Smith Plumbing & Heating and Culligan International yields many synergies that benefit our clients. With over 100 years of experience in solving plumbing & heating problems in New York City, “Fred Smith” has accumulated an unparalleled base of knowledge of NYC water distribution systems and of the mechanical and regulatory requirements of the City. Culligan International, on the other hand, has over 75 years experience as a global provider of end-to-end water treatment solutions for household applications and a variety of industries. Philip Kraus, owner of both “Fred Smith” and Culligan of New York City explains, “the quality of service we offer to our clients by working in partnership with Cullligan International far exceeds the quality that might be offered by either of us addressing the market individually. Culligan’s products, water treatment knowledge, and technical know-how available to our organization contributes a professional dimension to our organization that makes us the best equipped to solve most any water treatment problem in New York City.” Training by Culligan International experts is a benefit we enjoy in the partnership.

Kraus says, “as New Yorker’s become increasingly aware that there is a lot of room for improvement in the quality of their water, Culligan of New York City is prepared to tailor cost effective solutions to most any problem.”
