California, United States: Senninger Irrigation has joined the Hunter Industries family of companies.
Senninger and Hunter have been strategic partners since 2004 through an OEM relationship.
James Burks, Senninger President, said: “Our history of success together as separate organisations provides a solid indicator of our positive future as a unified team.
“We mutually respected and admired each other as reputable companies and felt if we came together we could learn from each other, realise economies of scale and be stronger than if we operated separately.”
A Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, Hunter Industries is a global manufacturer of products for the irrigation, landscape lighting, and custom manufacturing sectors.
Founded in 1981, the family-owned company offers more than 1,000 products including a complete spectrum of water-efficient solutions for residential and commercial irrigation systems.
Hunter says its mission is ‘to deliver valued products and services, grow the company conscientiously, and remain true to their culture’.
This acquisition adds to Hunter’s growing revenue stream through expansion into Senninger’s markets.
“Hunter and Senninger combine to create a very talented team of engineers and manufacturing professionals. We are very excited about working together with their teams to bring innovations to our shared channels,” said Greg Hunter, Chief Executive Officer at Hunter.
Burks added: “There has been an opportunity for both companies, over three decades, to casually observe each other’s development and behaviour, providing insight into the character and reputation of each respective company, their founders and management. Cultural alignment was a key factor for both organisations in opening discussions focused on an acquisition.”
