The Kohler Headquarters, shown above is located in Kohler, Wisconsin.  The company was founded in 1873 by Austrian immigrant John Michael Kohler. Early products included cast iron and steel farm implements, castings for furniture factories, and ornamental iron pieces. In 1883, enamel was applied to cast iron to create the companies first bathtub. – Wiki

KOHLER products are recognized for both beautiful form and reliable function.

In 1888, Kohler trademarked the “Bubbler”. Other companies then began to follow the lead by developing similar products under the generic name “drinking fountain”.  Today the Bubbler continues to be part of Wisconsin’s vernacular.
