The company has had a very impressive history of uninterrupted service to the industry dating back to 1868 when it was founded as American Well Works located in Aurora, Illinois. American Well Works began producing water and wastewater treatment equipment in the thirties and by the mid-forties had established a complete line of process equipment applicable to all phases of treatment. Since then additions or changes to the product line have kept pace with technological developments in the industry.

In 1967 Keene Corporation, desiring a partner in the Pollution Control Field, purchased and operated the company out of Aurora as the Water Pollution Control division. The division operated as part of Keene until January 1984 when it was purchased by the present ownership. The name was changed to Amwell® – a contraction of American Well.

We believe this long history as a major equipment supplier has resulted from the commitment we have made to the industries we serve. Amwell, like its predecessor companies, will continue to incorporate technological developments into the product line to better serve the environmental control field. The success of Amwell and its predecessors is attested to by a very impressive installation base measuring in the thousands. Amwell serves the market through a national representative organization which is supported by a strong sales, engineering and manufacturing support base, where quality is emphasized and controlled in our own manufacturing plant. This insures that our customer continues to receive first rate products, which is the foremost reason for our continued success.

Operators worried that rags slipping through the larger gaps would clog pumps and flood lift stations... Read more
