Here is the history of Hunter Industries into the Lawn Sprinkler Business
As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of irrigation equipment for the landscape and golf course industries, Hunter has enjoyed a well-established reputation as the innovation leader in irrigation. We continue to focus on the needs of the irrigation professional, just as we have every day since being founded 25 years ago as a small ‘start-up’ by industry pioneer Edwin J. Hunter.
Today, with Richard E. Hunter, Edwin’s son, at the helm as the company’s President and CEO, Hunter’s core purpose and mission is clear: To be the landscape professional’s first choice for irrigation products and services.
Headquartered in San Marcos, California, Hunter produces a full range of water-efficient products for residential and commercial use, as well as for golf course applications, including its legendary pop-up gear-driven rotors, spray sprinklers,valves, controllers, central controllers and weather sensors. As the innovation leaders, Hunter holds more than 250 product patents and 40 trademarks, starting with the Hunter PGP® in 1983 – the pop-up gear-driven rotor that revolutionized the irrigation industry.
Since then, Hunter has developed more than 100 innovative products that meet the needs of professional installers worldwide, including the new ACC Controller that was voted the most significant new product at the 2005 International Irrigation Association Show.
