Final preparations underway for A. O. Smith’s water treatment launch at Lowe’s


In just three short weeks, A. O. Smith Corporation will be launching its residential water treatment products at all Lowe’s U.S. home improvement stores, as we become the retailer’s primary water treatment brand. Within the last few days, we’ve had the opportunity to conduct pilot launches at a few test stores, including Lowe’s locations in San Antonio, Texas; Yuma, Arizona; and Carmel, Indiana.

“Initial indications and feedback from the buyer are that we hit a bullseye with the reset. Both the Lowe’s team and our team are excited for the broader rollout,” said Sam Karge, president, North America Water Treatment at A. O. Smith.


Based on any additional feedback from the pilot launches, the water treatment team will make needed tweaks and adjustments before the national Lowe’s rollout on August 20.

“Undoubtedly, it has taken a great deal of work to make this exciting project come to life, and we want to thank everyone who has played a role,” added Sam. “This has been a phenomenal team effort!”
