CULLIGAN OF TRI-CITIES HISTORY
Culligan of Tri-Cities began in 1946. In 1979, Gary Puckett who had worked for Culligan International left to become the local Culligan Man. The office was located at 214 N. Washington St. in Kennewick. Culligan dealership delivered salt, portable soft water tanks and rented, sold, and serviced water softeners. As the community grew so did Culligan.
In 1985, a new building was built at 1001 W. Columbia Drive where we are still today. At the new location, Culligan continued to rent, sell and service water softeners and began renting and selling reverse osmosis systems and providing DI service. In 1995, Culligan expanded again by building a bottle water production plant and renting water coolers and delivering bottle water. We have received awards of excellence in manufacturing from the National Sanitation Foundation since 2012.
In 2012, after 40 years as the Culligan Man, Gary sold Culligan to his daughter Kim and son-in law, Scott. Scott and Kim had managed a Culligan in Roswell under the leadership of Gary, and purchased Culligan of Moses Lake in 2011. Scott had been the manager of Culligan of Tri-Cities for 10 years.
Scott is a proud member of the 20W1 group, was elected to serve District 1 on the Culligan Dealer Advisory Counsel, is a member of International Bottle Water Association, and the President of the Northwest Bottle Water Association. He has earned his certified Plant Operators license, Preventive Control Qualified Individual Certificate and Contractor's license.
Kim is involved in Columbia DayBreak Rotary, a member of Warrior Sisterhood, a Stephan minister, former board member of Three Rivers Soccer Club and has volunteered at many local school and community activities.
Culligan also gives back to the community by donating money and/or purified drinking water to a number of charities, including Boy Scouts of America Blue Mountain Council, Tri City Cancer Center, Benton Franklin Fair, Habitat for Humanity, Union Gospel Mission and sponsors numerous sports and high school teams.
