Our Story

Steelhead was founded in 1971 as a family business with a single purpose – to design and manufacture equipment for the bottled water industry. At the outset, the company focused on returnable bottles, and Steelhead built a first-class line of equipment including the industry’s first single operator 5-gallon bottling machine. Since then Steelhead has expanded its abilities to provide world class water treatment solutions. With equipment placed in over 90 countries and an extensive customer base that is growing by the day, Steelhead is a reliable partner for leading producers in the beverage and agriculture industry

Industry Innovation

Steelhead’s production models for bottling systems are a perfect example of the company’s commitment to innovation. Our washer and filler designs have repeatedly set new industry standards, and our single operator bottling systems have allowed smaller producers to excel within a new niche in the water bottling industry.

Steelhead is currently working with the IBWA and other major bottlers in developing test methods and equipment supporting studies of Ozone CT (contact time) values as it relates to product water treatment.

Regulatory and Compliant Solutions

The bottling and water treatment solutions from Steelhead are always evolving to achieve improvements in performance, efficiency, regulatory compliance. Recent innovations include the optimization of our system’s environmental footprint as it relates to water and energy usage, and a continual adherence to FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) Regulatory Requirements.

Steelhead actively works with other bottlers, government and association committees, and partners and suppliers in an effort to ensure that our practices are state-of-the-art and adequately address industry regulatory and environmental concerns.
