High Altitude Balloons
In 1966, Pentair was established in a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota, by a group of five friends who set out to build high-altitude balloons, a venture that didn’t quite get the results the founders had envisioned. However, the company rapidly diversified beyond its original scope in search of something more profitable and eventually found itself in the tool industry and with time, water systems and pool equipment. Over time, Pentair narrowed down its operations, eventually concentrating on water treatment and sustainable solutions, partly through acquisitions and partly by conducting spin-offs of various departments.
