Marlo, Incorporated, located in Racine, Wisconsin on Lake Michigan with easy access to metropolitan Milwaukee and Chicago, was founded by Fred and Mike Glines in 1973. It is a closely held Corporation staffed with competent individuals whose combined experience in the manufacturing and marketing of water treatment equipment totals more than 150 years.

Marlo's initial thrust was in the domestic water conditioning dealer marketplace. This activity was supplemented by producing residential equipment for the overseas market, particularly England, France and the Scandinavian countries.

In order to present a full line business profile to its customers, Marlo created a Commercial and Industrial Division in 1976, offering a line of light and medium commercial softeners and filters. This move necessitated the acquisition of a cadre of Manufacturer's Representative throughout the United States and in several overseas markets to call on Mechanical Contractors, Specifying Engineers, Architects, etc. Over the years Marlo's C&I water treatment equipment has been installed in hundreds of hospitals, schools, factories, laundries and institutions. Numerous accounts include names in the Fortune 500 list. For more information on Marlo please visit
