The beginning of Flow-Rite
It all started in a basement. Flow-Rite was founded in 1981 by a group of experienced engineers, manufacturers, and patent attorneys.
The business plan was to develop fluid control products based on fluidics technology.
The focus was on industries where conventional mechanical valves had proven to be unreliable.
Our first products included automatic level controls for commercial and residential swimming pools, we have come a long way since then!
Our first single point watering system was created in 1985 and it has been history ever since!
What's happening today..
We have grown substantially over the past 30 years.
We now offer a wide range of products and solutions.
In 2005, we moved into our new 48,000 square foot building in Byron Center.
It has allowed us to handle growth and remain vertically integrated.
Today, Flow-Rite has over 150 employees and operates in numerous industries. A few of these include golf, marine, RV, industrial and numerous others.
As a company devoted to finding solutions to industry problems, we aren’t slowing down anytime soon.
In recent years, we have become more devote to our mission, vision, and values as way to keep us moving in the right direction.
This devotion has allowed us to focus on our people, which has also lead us to being selected as one of the 101 Best and Brightest Companies to work for in West Michigan for the past two consecutive years.
