Cul­li­gan has been pro­vid­ing high qual­i­ty prod­ucts and ser­vices for com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial needs in Mar­i­on since the 1940’s. The busi­ness was pur­chased in 1955 by Gus Parish and moved to its cur­rent loca­tion at 310 W. 1st Street on Octo­ber 2nd, 1962. Before Cul­li­gan, the build­ing had served as a church as well as office space for Gen­er­al Motors while they built the Mar­i­on Stamp­ing Plant.

Ver­lin Wine began work­ing at Cul­li­gan in 1962. In 1975, he and his wife, Martha, bought the busi­ness. Verlin’s son, Mitch, and his wife, Beth, bought the busi­ness from Ver­lin and Martha in 2011. Cul­li­gan has been owned by the Wine fam­i­ly for near­ly 50 years. 

Our favorite thing about doing busi­ness in Mar­i­on is the peo­ple! We have been blessed to have the best cus­tomers! We have done busi­ness with many fam­i­lies & gen­er­a­tions in Grant Coun­ty,” said own­er Beth Wine. She con­tin­ued, We fore­see Cul­li­gan con­tin­u­ing to pro­vide qual­i­ty, depend­able prod­ucts and excel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice to our customers.”

Wine says they couldn’t do it with­out their team of employ­ees. Our employ­ees are our biggest bless­ing, with many being here for over 20 years. Ver­lin will cel­e­brate 60 years in the busi­ness in Octo­ber and Mitch has 35. You can’t train some­one to have the knowl­edge that our team has about the water here in Mar­i­on and the Grant Coun­ty area.”

Cul­li­gan is proud to be a part of the com­mu­ni­ty in Mar­i­on and try to help out in any way they can when­ev­er pos­si­ble. They sup­port Gilead Min­istries, Grant Coun­ty Res­cue Mis­sion, Youth for Christ, Grant Coun­ty 4H, area high school ath­let­ics, PAL Club, Host­ess House, and many more caus­es. They feel it is impor­tant to give back to their com­mu­ni­ty when­ev­er possible.

Beth added, We are very excit­ed about the future for Mar­i­on, espe­cial­ly the new busi­ness growth in downtown!”

Cul­li­gan Mar­i­on is locat­ed at 310 W. 1st Street and may be reached at (765) 6641269.
