About Us

Johnson Screens Vision:

To be our clients' preferred provider of whole solutions; meeting their expanding global needs for water infrastructure, fluids processing and industrial filtration.

Johnson Screens was founded in 1904 by Edward E. Johnson after he invented the world’s first continuous slot wire wrapped well screen.  Considered a revolution in technology for the industry, the continuous slot well screen provided more open area per square foot of screen than other conventional methods, allowing more water into the well with more efficiency.

Continuing the trend of innovative technology, in 1930 Johnson Screens advanced the continuous slot screen and invented the all welded continuous slot wire wrapped well screen. Johnson Screens was now not only the world leader in innovative screening technology, it was the world leader in the water well screening industry.

Over the years Johnson Screens has expanded its water well screening technology into industries such as surface water treatment, food and beverage processing, pulp and paper, oil and gas, mineral and aggregate processing, refining and petrochemical and even architecture.


Johnson Screens originated in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, and is still located there today. While maintaining its roots, it has grown to a global company with facilities in North and South America, Australia, Asia, Europe and Africa.
