Indiana-based Onesource Water was recently recognized for its growth strategy through acquisition
Onesource Water, a provider of bottle-less water cooler systems, recently announced that it has received the Assn. for Corporate Growth (ACG) Small Cap Value Award.
The award was presented to Onesource Water President Eric Giesecke by ACG Indiana at the 2012 ACG Indiana Awards dinner, held in Indianapolis on May 3. The awards dinner brings together the middle-market deal-making community and business leaders from Indiana-based companies to honor the key growth stories in the state from the past year.
As water coolers evolve to include more complex point-of-use filtration systems, certification becomes increasingly important. Dave Bentley, technical manager for NSF Intl., recently discussed the ins and outs of cooler certification with Water Quality Products Managing Editor Kate Cline.
Kate Cline: Which NSF standards apply to water coolers?
The Palm Spring water dispenser comes equipped with a five-stage reverse osmosis (RO) system suitable for places with a greater demand of drinking water such as meeting or convention rooms. The dispenser is available in cold, hot and room temperatures and can also dispense soda water. Options include an ultraviolet (UV) and direct chill system.
The Linis Water Station III is a POU purification cooler that offers 15,000-gal-rated microfiltration and a 250-gpd RO system with 3.5 gal of onboard storage. Features include push-button dispensing, in-tank UV guard, BioCote antimicrobial surface protection and a large dispensing area. A 3/8-in. hub port enables the station to feed RO water to additional stations as well as coffee makers and ice machines.
