Whittaker Marks 60th Anniversary

January 12, 2021

Whittaker Co. recently marked its 60th year of business.

The New Castle, Pennsylvania manufacturer was founded in 1961 as the R.E. Whittaker Company by Dick Whittaker. The company embraced encapsulation cleaning technology in the 1980s as a sustainable approach to carpet cleaning. Today Dick’s family continues to lead the company with his son Tom serving as president and his grandsons, Derek and Trent, involved in the day-to-day operations of the company.

“We are proud to continue innovating, driving the industry forward and honoring my father’s legacy,” said Tom Whittaker. “This is a true family business that’s grown over the years, and we’re all proud to be a part of it. We look forward to helping more building service contractors and facility managers discover the benefits of low-moisture carpet care.”
