Pentair Company.


In 1966, five men trying to make balloons at high altitude founded a company in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minnesota, which they called Pentair, the Greek "Penta" for the five founders and "air" for the products they planned to produce.

Pentair quickly diversified, venturing into industries ranging from plastic canoe manufacturing to computer software, leather footwear, before acquiring a number of paper mills that would serve as the core of the company for nearly two decades. Known for his willingness to venture into new industries and his ability to find operational efficiencies, which would become the cornerstone for Pentair Integrated Management System, the company transformed from a paper company to a tools company and ultimately a water company, all while delivering steady growth and profitability.

Over the years, Pentair's Win Right people, processes and values have been at the center of its growth. As the company embarks on its next chapter in 2018 as a pure water company, Pentair is leveraging its unique technology, talent, tools, and thinking to deliver smart, sustainable Solutions for Life.
