Vand solutions - our journey



Vand Solutions was created out of the need for a reliable rep firm made up of individuals experienced in the water & wastewater industries. Toward the end of 2015, Kruger, a North Carolina-based company, was in search of a substantial rep presence in the Carolinas. Finn Nielsen seized the opportunity and after a successful 6 months of work in North Carolina, Lucas Magrini joined the team and Vand Solutions expanded to provide coverage in South Carolina and Virginia. In early 2017, Chris Parisher joined the team in an effort to meet the growing needs of the customers.




Vand Solutions’ goal is to bring innovative and reliable systems and equipment to the municipal market.  The company will eventually expand to the industrial market, as well as provide services to both of these industries.
