Cool in a Crisis

Leonard Keener started Toledo Water Conditioning in 1947. After he returned from serving his country in World War II, he decided to open a business in the water treatment industry so he could provide customers with products that were truly beneficial while also running a company of his own. 

Today, his son, John Keener, who grew up in the industry, runs the business. Keener started working for his father full time in 1980 after working as a part-time employee throughout high school and college.
