As an American female owner of a water treatment equipment dealership in Baja California Sur, Mexico, Barbara Manfrediz considers herself to be “a bit of a novelty.”
Manfrediz moved to Mexico from Arizona in 2010 with no experience in the water treatment industry. Shortly after purchasing a water treatment system for her home, she was hired as a representative for the company that sold her the system. In March 2014, she opened her own business: Water Ways Baja. The dealership serves homes and businesses in the southern portion of the Baja California Peninsula.

Jim and Martha Rabb founded Rabb Water Systems in 1951 in Plymouth, Ind. Ten years later, they relocated to Warsaw, Ind., and the dealership has been a fixture in north-central Indiana for nearly 45 years.
Rabb Water has since expanded to five other locations, with a service area covering 27 counties. The Rabb family sold the business to Don and George Clemens in 1988. George was the Rabb’s son-in-law, so the dealership remains family owned.

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.
