A businessperson with good ideas starts a company in their hometown. The company makes money, and grows. It gives back to the town, invests in its people and its buildings, bringing hope and prosperity with every new innovation. This is the American Dream, and it’s happening right now in Pulaski, New York.
Located on the Salmon River in Central New York, Pulaski is known for its natural beauty, small town charm, and incredible salmon fishing. It’s also the hometown of Intellipure. Our revolutionary indoor air quality technologies were developed here. Our world-renowned purification products are manufactured here. Our future is invested here. Like the best fishermen, we found success in Pulaski through patience, determination, and a deep love of our surroundings.
Intellipure founder and CEO Vincent Lobdell grew up in Pulaski, and he’s made it his company’s mission to give back to the town that helped form him. His journey of searching, developing and perfecting air purification systems started in 1981. Bringing pure air to more people and creating a healthier indoor environment to live have always been his passion. Over 35 years have passed; he finally incorporates the cutting edge DFS technology to state-of-the-art Intellipure air cleaning devices that are excellent for not only homes but also various indoor environments that a person can possibly occupy. As a giveback to his own hometown, Lobdell purchased and completely renovated the abandoned Ontario Iron Works facility, saving it from the wrecking ball. Built in 1830’s, once a landmark and most important manufacturing center in the 19th and 20th century, the facility was forced to close due to keen competition from larger corporations. Today, it becomes Intellipure’s headquarters – a bustling center of American innovation and manufacturing that provides jobs, attracts out of town interests, and infuses energy into the area.
In 2010, the company purchased and completely refurbished the Kallet Theater, a failing movie house in town whose glory days seemed firmly entrenched in the past. Today, the Kallet is a go-to location for concerts, business functions and live theater. It hosts all of Intellipure’s global summits.
When Intellipure makes plans for the future, it has Pulaski’s future in mind as well. To us, this is what it means to buy a product that was “Made In USA”. Not only are you paying for technology developed in one of the world’s most innovative nations, you’re also investing in the well-being of a small town and improving people’s lives.
