Pasadena-based LifeSource Water Systems Inc. was recognized by Inc. 5000 as among the fastest-growing private companies in America.

LifeSource said it has expanded from its corporate headquarters in Pasadena to over 10 offices nationwide. The company added that it currently has 80 employees.

Owner Cherie Harris believes the reason behind the company’s success lies in their philosophy that business needs to be a win/win.

“When a customer wins due to satisfaction with the product, and when our employees win because they enjoy the work they do, we win as a business,” Harris said. “That’s where the growth begins, and that’s what makes our business excel.”

Philanthropy also plays a big role in the company’s business model. LifeSource describes itself as a strong advocate of giving back to charities as a way to pay it forward. LifeSource regularly contributes to multiple charities, including Rainforest Flow and Cancer Support Community.

One exciting news from the company is that it plans to debut a new product this year. This product, the company said, will instantly eliminate bacteria and viruses without electricity or chemicals.

Among the notable accomplishments of the company is that it’s the first to market with a Whole-House T.A.C. (Template Assisted Crystallization) ScaleSolver in 2011, the company said.

In 2008, founder BJ.Wright’s daughter Cherie Harris, along with her husband Mark Harris, and brother Jay Wright, began to take over the business with a focus on solidifying the company’s foundation and modernizing the logistics and business model. During this time, the company said, they began to automate processes, manufacturing and marketing to reflect the change in times and technology.

LifeSource not only managed to stay in business during the biggest housing market crash in history but also avoided having to lay off employees, the company added.

And in 2007, LifeSource was awarded the trademark for “Whole House Water System” by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the company said.

The company added that Wright, a staunch advocate for clean water, founded LifeSource Water Systems in 1984 and introduced the first salt-free whole house water filtration system.
