"Hey Culligan Man!" To be sure, the phrase made famous by an earlier advertising campaign still rings in the ears of Culligan International workers. Formerly a subsidiary of Veolia Environnement , Culligan produces filters for tap water, household water softeners, microfiltration products, desalination systems, and portable deionization services for commercial and industrial users. The "Culligan Man" noted in the advertising phrase delivers bottled water and water systems to consumers and businesses through more than 800 Culligan company-owned and franchised dealers. Culligan also has a commercial and industrial business, Culligan Matrix Solutions.
