Providing Rockland County Cleaner, Better Water for More Than 68 Years

More than a half century ago in 1950, Al and Bert Herdman – my grandfather and great uncle — bought the franchise rights for Culligan International, forming A&B Herdman Corp. with the belief that conditioned water should be available to all homeowners. 

Those same beliefs and values that keep our brick and mortar location at 21 First Street in  New City have been passed down for three generations. My father, Ken Herdman, joined his father and uncle in 1964, earning each loyal customer by practicing the same standards and ethics A&B was founded upon: quality products and unmatched customer service -- before and after the sale.  In 1976, he became President when my grandfather retired.

I came on board to work with my dad in 1991 and have been president of Culligan of Rockland since 2011.  I am committed to upholding the same principles that our family-owned business was founded on which has earned us generations of loyal and satisfied customers. I am always proud and humbled when a longtime customer talks about my dad or grandfather. 

In 2016, I was delighted that Culligan of Rockland was recognized by Culligan International by receiving the Emmett J. Culligan award, which recognizes the top 15 dealers across the country in revenue growth.

As the water treatment industry has changed and technology has advanced over the years, Culligan International has been at the forefront with product innovation and superior warranties backed by a network of more than 640 dealers in 93 countries worldwide.  On a local level, we will continue to carry on the tradition of providing homeowners and businesses in Rockland County with the best in water treatment products and services they have become accustomed to.
