Today, second and third generations of the Morrison family along with a dynamic team lead CITCO Water.

Our History

1931     Charles Irving Thornburg created the C.I. Thornburg Company as the experts for pipe, valves, and fittings in Huntington, West Virginia.

 

1958    Web Morrison purchased the company with the vision of providing contractors and municipalities everything they needed to take water from the source and return it back to the source.

 

2020     With Web’s vision achieved, we renamed the company CITCO WATER to reflect our growth and experience in the water and wastewater industry.

 

Today     It’s an exciting position to be in—offering our customers a vast array of products and services, from chemicals, supplies, design expertise, smart technology, upgrades, repairs, to even investing in their infrastructure at no costs to them. We now have over 100 employees and seven full-service branches that serve West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Southern Ohio.

 

Tomorrow     We will continue to expand our products and solutions to meet our customers ever-evolving needs.
