Our Story

About Us

The Richardson family began its extensive water history in 1939, when Dad, Rich Richardson migrated to Washington from the Kansas oil fields. Rich settled in Parkland, Washington where he purchased 7 ½ acres to begin a water well drilling business. One of Rich’s three sons, Neil Richardson, followed in his footsteps and took over Richardson Well Drilling in 1955. Neil continues to oversee the drilling operations through his only son, Rick, who assumed company management in 1995.

In 1962, Neil began Rainier View, a water utility company. In the years that followed the company has developed into the largest privately owned water utility in the state of Washington, serving a population of over 35,000 and growing.

What began as a dream in 1985 became a reality in 1989 when Richardson Bottling Company sold the first bottle of water under the brand name of Mountain Mist.

Richardson Bottling plant, located in the shadows of Mount Rainier, began with a mere few hundred square feet of bottling area with only one bottle filler, and less than 2 decades later Mountain Mist has grown to its present 45,000 square foot bottling plant and warehouse with completely automated bottling lines consisting of three filler/cappers for gallons and 2 ½ gallons, as well as P.E.T. bottles and palletization. Wholesale distribution of Mountain Mist and other contract private labels traverse 7 western states.

Richardson Bottling Company, driven by the desire to provide a truly natural product with honest marketing, continues to offer consumers what nature intended: just pure and natural spring water. Nothing added, nothing removed. 

From our family to yours. Mountain Mist, more than just another bottled water.
