Located in La Verne, California, MTN Products, and more recently Water Solutions, have been family owned and operated since 1988 and 2006 respectively. Since the beginning, we have been dedicated to serving the water industry by providing superior water dispensing products, coolers and total beverage systems that deliver what our customers need to succeed and build their businesses.
Our passion shows in our commitment to developing new technologies that enhance the value, durability and end user experience of our products. Every MTN product and system is designed by our highly skilled engineering staff. We manufacture to the highest standards of quality, safety and hygiene, under the supervision of our quality control and engineering staff in our state-of-the-art production facility in Asia. Our diverse assortment of leading edge products is matched by superior customer service with response times that exceed expectations.
As the quality of drinking water continues to decline in the U.S. and throughout the world, bottled or filtered water has become the healthy beverage of choice. Water sales continue to grow dramatically as consumers seek the best options in taste, convenience and safety.
The driving passion behind our business is to develop and deliver quality bottled water and filtration (POU) water dispensing products that provide the best end user experience, delivering on the need for better quality drinking water in a quick, convenient and healthy manner.
Today, our water dispensing and total beverage system solutions are distributed though a variety of channels: Bottle Water Companies (BW), Point-of-Use (POU) filtration dealers and Office Coffee Service Dealers (OCS)
MTN Products is also fully committed to being a leading force in the industry and helping to drive its direction in a way that benefits everyone. We are active members of many organizations and associations dedicated to water quality and the advancement of our industry including the IBWA, WQA, TWQA and NAMA.
At MTN Products and Water Solutions, we aspire to become the industry’s preferred provider of bottled water coolers, filtration water coolers, and your total beverage system solutions provider. Through complete vertical integration of design and manufacturing, and efficient distribution through select dealer channels, our goal is to continually build upon our position as a world-class organization. We will accomplish this by staying customer-focused, operating with unequalled professionalism, maintaining core family values, and providing exceptional customer service.
Our purpose is to continually exceed the expectations of our customers by providing innovative products and services that contribute to the long-term success of our customer’s businesses. We will drive our growth and position in the marketplace by employing world-class research and development staff who implement design through manufacturing practices that result in superior products offered at competitive prices. Our business will operate with an emphasis on relationships, treating both MTN Products and Water Solutions associates, and our valued customers alike, with the same family-oriented approach that was instilled in our business at its inception.
We operate our business with core family values that make every associate proud to be a member of the MTN/Water Solutions family. Our goal is to ensure that each one of us is willing and empowered to do whatever is needed to build upon the success of MTN. We are committed to individual improvement and mutual support.
