DRAMM Corporation in Manitowoc, WI, celebrated a landmark anniversary in 2016. John G. Dramm’s simple invention, a watering nozzle with 400 holes that turned high-volume spray into soft-flow spray, sparked a 75-year journey of innovation that has culminated in a multi-million dollar global operation entering its third generation of family leadership.
The company, started in 1941, has moved from a basement operation to a 55,000-square-foot facility employing more than 50 people. It has four divisions: Retail, Fertilizer, Commercial, and DRAMMwater. The Waterbreaker remains as its mainstay product, along with a variety of sprayers, foggers, environmental controllers, and horticultural equipment.
