Pentair Water Treatment, Chardon, OH, is number one in the worldwide water treatment control valves market and produces control valves, tanks, and pressure vessels used in residential, commercial, and industrial water conditioning systems. The company manufactures most of their own tanks, but does outsource the production of three of their larger polyethylene water tanks.
Recently, Pentair became unhappy with the quality of product they were receiving from their supplier. The water tanks they were receiving were dirty and the lead time was getting longer.
Pentair began searching for another supplier. They looked on the internet and found a new supplier, Assmann Corporation, based in Garrett, IN. Assmann provides Pentair with the clean, high quality end product they demand and delivers it on time.
