Carbtrol was founded by Ken Lanouette and Austin Shepherd in April, 1983. Ken and Austin saw opportunities to manufacture environmental equipment utilizing activated carbon. They initially focused on ground water remediation (gas stations which had to clean up water contaminated by leaking underground tanks). As the business expanded and evolved, Carbtrol added solutions for a wide range of liquid and vapor applications. The business was started in Westport, CT then moved to Bridgeport, CT which had space to manufacture Carbtrol`s growing product line. The Carbtrol name was formed by joining the words Carbon and Control.
