Prodew Misting Systems Remain Industry Go-To with Help of John Guest Fittings

Shakeel Merchant:

Our system doesn't fail, and there's no need for preventative maintenance using John Guest Fittings was some of the major reasons for our success. We could not have done it without them.

Shakeel Merchant:

My name is Shakeel Merchant, and I'm the co-founder of Prodew, Aguair and ProWaterParts. I used to work for Itamar Kleinberger, my co-founder. We started this company about 20 years ago.

Itamar Kleinberger:

We initially were the small players in the industry, and now we control about 80% of anything that has to do with misting and humidity in the supermarket environment. I can go on and on pretty much every chain that you know about, we're almost in all of them.

Faizan Aly:

Prodew and Aguair combined produce a lot of different variation of products. Prodew concentrates on the retail end, going from the misting systems to the humidification systems in the meat and seafood cases. Aguair focuses on everything that's outside the retail umbrella. Agriculture, livestock, going into some of your public sectors and for sanitization purposes. So they're all encapsulated in enhancing or preserving the product line.

Itamar Kleinberger:

We started using John Guest all the way from the beginning. Part of our success is the quality of our product. Using John Guest made our product top quality.

Faizan Aly:

Once the fitting has been put in, we don't want to go back to the store and fix it. So the reliability is an important factor. Our customers like Krogers and the Walmarts of the world. They trust us because of our quality. And in order to maintain that quality, we had to provide them with the best product possible.

Shakeel Merchant:

Because we consider ourself more of an engineering firm. We look at things from a very crucial eye. We time test everything.

Faizan Aly:

When we tested John Guest, it met that quality factor.

Shakeel Merchant:

John Guest, it is some of the highest quality product. In the last couple of decades, I would say that we have used well over a 100,000 fittings.

Itamar Kleinberger:

Many, many, many thousands.

Faizan Aly:

I would say millions. But John Guest is the most reliable. And that's a critical part of what we stand for. Quality of product at a competitive price.

Itamar Kleinberger:

It makes us look better. And that's why we've been using exclusively John Guest.
