Nelsen Corp. 60th Anniversary Sweepstakes Ford F150 Pickup

Nelsen Corp. has been providing customer service and water treatment equipment for more than 60 years. With locations in Ohio, Arizona, Texas and Florida, the company has a broad inventory and the ability to customize products for both commercial and residential customers.

Nelsen Corp. was founded in 1954 by Emil and Ron Nelsen as Century Water Conditioning Co., a retail pump and water softener dealership. Originally located in Emil’s home in North Royalton, Ohio, operations were conducted from an enclosed back porch office and a small barn that served as the warehouse.

Although most sales were to homeowners at retail prices, a few well drillers and pump dealers were also regular customers. As sales increased, more and more products were purchased directly from manufacturers in order to supply the dealer trade and eventually became 100% wholesale trade to professional dealers.

The company has seen substantial growth over the years. This year marks the 60th year for Nelsen Corp., and after all these years, it has become the largest family-owned and operated OEM. In honor of this anniversary, Nelsen Corp. announced its “60th Anniversary Sweepstakes.” The company will award the grand prize winner for 2014 a new Ford F150 pickup.

Every dealer in good standing with the company will receive one chance for each $500 in invoiced merchandise (excluding freight and taxes). There is no limit to how many times an individual dealer may enter — spend $1,000 and get two chances to win; spend $100,000 and receive 200 chances, etc. Dealers also can earn bonus entries through online sales, commercial orders or sales increases.

No purchase is necessary to enter this sweepstakes. Complete rules are available on the company’s website.
