Norland’s Water Bottling Systems and Technology is a Match for New York Customer

“I felt as if Norland has the best all around water bottling line. It takes up a very small footprint, is easy to work on, and a lot of the parts are readily available at the local level”, reported Fran McCauley when we talked with him about his bottled water business.  Mr. McCauley is Operations Manager of Dowser Spring Water Company, a very successful bottler of all natural, unprocessed spring water in the great state of New York. 

After working for 30 years in the beverage industry, Fran’s entrepreneurial drive led him to the bottled water business.  He knew that the bottled water industry was growing fast and offered many opportunities for business growth.  But he didn’t know how to get started and where to get the technology and equipment he needed to fulfill his dream.  Then a trip to Las Vegas changed everything.

He and a colleague decided to visit the International Bottled Water Association’s annual exposition and trade show held that year in Las Vegas, Nevada.  It was there that he came across the Norland International booth and display of bottling equipment and systems, and found the match they needed.    Discussions with Norland staff and a factory visit to their headquarters in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA followed.  Fran and his partners selected Norland’s team and water bottling solutions to work with and haven’t looked back since.
