Customer

Kelley Williamson Oil
Rockford, Illinois

Problem

Kelley Williamson claimed that they had the best coffee in town. When we originally approached them they were using competitor’s equipment. Our sales representative asked them questions to explore just how well their existing water treatment equipment was working, and how reliable it was. An opportunity was uncovered. There was a lack of quality with their existing equiment, both in product and in service. The customer wanted spot-free rinse and improved coffee/beverages.

Solution

  • The customer agreed to a trial of 4-6 stores, testing our commercial water filter equipment and service against those of the competitor.
  • A Series Reverse Osmosis system for car wash; B Series RO for inside stores with carbon and softeners for pretreatment.
  • We service the inside of the store with a commercial water filter, softening and reverse osmosis
  • They needed purified water for beverages, coffee and ice machines.
  • Outside, we serviced the car wash with softening for boiler make-up, hot water pre-treatment for RO (spot-free car wash).

Equipment Installed

  • Reverse osmosis for water inside store
  • Reverse osmosis with pretreatment in car wash
  • Salt service, preventive maintenance and filter changing

Result

  • Spot-free rinse in car wash. Substantiation of “Best coffee in town” claims
  • Culligan now services 70 stations between Rockford and Madison. In fact, the customer is so pleased that, although the provider of the car wash equipment also provides RO and softeners to all their customers, Kelley Williamson Oil has opted to buy that equipment from Culligan!
