Hunter Irrigation Manufacturing Facility Tour

Posted in Plants, Uncategorized at 6:01 AM by Administrator

Last week our primary supplier and Hunter Industries invited Tony to tour their manufacturing facilities in California and meet with product managers for all of the Hunter irrigation supplies.  The tours were very impressive.  All employees appeared to be happy and proud to work for Hunter.  The product managers explained the new products to the 6 of us who attended this meeting.  I am very excited to share how a few of their products will help all of us save water and minimize how much irrigation is needed.

This is a picture of one area of the manufacturing facilities at Hunter.

This picture shows part of the Hunter rotor being manufactured.

This picture shows the room where the Hunter rotors are tested.  The ‘funnels’ down the center of the room catch water and this information is recorded to confirm the spray distance of each type of irrigation head.

FX Lighting – Manufacturing Facility

Posted in Landscape Lights, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:48 AM by Administrator

Tony toured the manufacturing facility of FX lighting last week.  It is an impressive site where the components are manufactured but not assembled into a final product until an order is received.  They custom build each light by assembling the various components to the exact order.  I was able to see the brass fixtures as well as the coated fixtures.  Here are a few pictures related to the FX lighting facility.
