Ray Kellish was born in Youngstown, Ohio, and spent much of his life in Chicago before relocating to Maryland. Ray is an avid pilot and fisherman who loves spending time with his family.
Ray founded Blue Water Irrigation & Landscape Lighting in Annapolis, Maryland. As a residential irrigation customer, Ray had experienced frustration and service difficulties with a local landscape irrigation firm. So Ray decided to start BWI, Inc. to provide service and installations that would be done 100% right the very first time, at a fair price, and with the best irrigation and landscape lighting equipment he could find.
Ray is kept very busy serving as a member of the U.S. Delegation on American Foreign Policy traveling to China lead by General Peter Pace USMC, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (Ret). Ray met with senior government leaders of China to help improve understanding of each other's countries and to improve business and cultural relations between our countries. Ray spends a great deal of time out of the country developing Brightwater Illumination and Irrigation licensing opportunities in Spain and Australia. When Ray is not putting in 15-hour days with Brightwater, he loves spending quality time with his wife and children, boating, cooking and worldwide traveling.
"We went through a huge process to engineer and design our own products," says Ray, "because we take quality that seriously.

Ray Kellish
Ray Kellish was born in Youngstown, Ohio, and spent much of his life in Chicago before relocating to Maryland. Ray is an avid pilot and fisherman who loves spending time with his family. The story behind Blue Water Irrigation & Landscape Lighting is that, years ago, Ray had an irrigation system that needed servicing. Three calls, hundreds of dollars and much frustration later, the system still wasn't working properly. So Ray decided to start BWI, Inc. to provide service and installations that would be done 100% right the very first time, at a fair price, and with the best equipment he could find.

Ray's greatest accomplishment-besides raising four children-was engineering and designing the very best irrigation parts in the world. "We went through a huge process to engineer and design our own products," says Ray, "because we take quality that seriously. Our clients deserve the very best we can give them."
"Our clients really like and trust us. Our dedication to customer satisfaction is the key to our competitive advantage. Traditional values and old-fashioned hard work are our fundamentals."- Ray Kellish

According to Ray, "It's all about doing the right thing. Everyone at BWI, Inc. shares this deep dedication: The highest quality level in service; the right way of treating an employee with a problem; the right commitment to the community; the highest quality in manufacturing. We have an official company color, ,BWI, Inc. Blue,' and we often use the phrase ,bleeding blue' to describe our numerous true believers."
Ray is very proud of BWI, Inc.'s reputation: "Our clients really like and trust us. Our dedication to customer satisfaction is the key to our competitive advantage. Traditional values and old-fashioned hard work are BWI, Inc. fundamentals."
"These are my hopes through the course of 2008: in addition to renewing our competitive advantage, we have the courage to maintain our values and our integrity; we have defined our own business and NOT been defined by others; and we continue to care enough to treat our customers and each other as human beings. I renew these hopes every year as we move forward into the 21st century and as I start to transition the company to my children. It's been a great ride!"—Ray Kellish, BWI, Inc. President & CEO
