About Sterling Culligan Water of Waupaca
Sterling Culligan Water began in October of 1949, when W. Sterling & Jo Tangley and Frank Decker formed a partnership and named their new venture Culligan Soft Water of Pierce County. They established a new Culligan franchise and built a plant in Ellsworth, WI. The business grew steadily for the next 25 years. During those early years, Sterling and Jo’s son, Peter, grew up and actively worked in the business. After 35 years as a Culligan dealer, Peter and his wife Karol passed ownership to their son, Bret, who grew up and actively works in the business. He's held a variety of roles since 1982, serving as president since 2005.
