Thirsting for Knowledge

In my travels across North America over the years, I have observed and documented the characteristics of people and companies to develop profiles. In particular, I look for companies that seem to be the most successful in their markets. We all have periods of success, but I am referring to the companies that seem to continuously rise to the top, even with ever-changing markets and economic conditions.

The Dangers of Drought

This can be advantageous, however, for water treatment dealers who use this as an opportunity to stay in contact with customers and offer education and additional services to help them through the drought.

Knowledge is Power

CD Environmental owner and Manager Charlie Dill traveled a long road before reaching his final destination. He began working in the construction field — first in excavating and then in framing houses. Nine years ago his family started a plumbing and contracting business, and it was while working in plumbing that Dill began to see the importance of water treatment not just in new homes, but also in existing homes. It was from this experience that CD Environmental was born.
