The Waters story begins in 1894 with GE Waters offering “a little bit of everything” to the small town of Manchester, KS. With the goal of pursuing an higher education for his children, GE moved his company to nearby Junction City in 1905. It was there that his grandson and great-grandson, Bob and Jim Waters, oversaw the largest expansion of the company, as well as its partnership with the True Value Company.
Today, Jim Waters operates one of the most respected groups of True Value stores in the country. With over 100 years in the hardware industry, five generations of Waters leadership, and over 200 dedicated team members serving 7 communities in Kansas, Waters True Value strives everyday to continue the original vision of GE Waters by providing quality products and great service. – less
