Craft Products History

Leading the Industry Since 1937

Headquartered in Ross, approximately 6 miles north of Pittsburgh, Craft has developed a strong customer base in the field of industrial, commercial and institutional water treatment in an area encompassing Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. Craft also serves the entire water treatment market in the areas of analysis and reagent supply.

Craft has established a reputation as a superior, reliable, stable and flexible designer and supporter of water treatment programs designed to provide customers the most economical program available. In the area of analysis supplies, the experience that being water treaters brings to bear is the knowledge of the programs as well as the analysis requirements. Craft's deep expertise and their ability to supply the products their customers need when they need them has made Craft a preferred supplier to firms interested in making analysis an asset rather than an inconvenience.
