Our History

Jutzi Water Technologies formally known as D.H. Jutzi Limited was founded by David Jutzi in 1953 as an Imperial Oil distributor. In the beginning, D.H Jutzi Limited sold fuel, oil for home furnaces, lubricants and hydraulic fluid to its customers. With the D.H. Jutzi fleet of delivery trucks transported petroleum across Oxford, Perth and Huron counties from the town of Tavistock Ontario. Eventually the business outgrew the double-car garage in Tavistock and moved to Stratford Ontario to a larger facility in the 1980s. During this time David Jutzi's sons joined the family business to help expand the petroleum business and introduce the water treatment services. In 2017 D.H. Jutzi Limited decided to leave the petroleum sector to focus on the water treatment industry leading to the Jutzi Water Technologies today.
