Culligan was founded in a blacksmith shop in Northbrook, Illinois in 1936, with $50.00 in his pocket and with additional money arranged as a loan by his brother, Dr. John M. Culligan, and his sister, Anna V. Culligan, he set up the Culligan Zeolite Company with his brothers, Drs. John and Leo Culligan, as partners. They started the new business in Jack McLaughlin’s Blacksmith Shop at Northbrook, Illinois. Emmett perforated the bottom of a coffee can and used greensand to make his own water filter. Upon running water through his device, he discovered that the filter also behaved as a water softener. By 1938, the first Culligan franchised dealership opened in Wheaton, Illinois, followed by another in Hagerstown, Maryland. In 2004, Entrepreneur Magazine named Culligan the number one franchise in its industry. The company currently has over 600 dealers in the United States and Canada and sells its products in more than 90 countries.
