Hunter Industries was founded in 1981 by irrigation industry pioneer and entrepreneur Edwin Hunter, with the help of his sons, Paul and Richard, and daughter, Ann. The companies first irrigation breakthrough was the introduction of PGP gear-driven rotor in 1983 which launched the “Rotor Revolution” in the landscape and golf irrigation industry.
With the rise in importance of water conservation in the golf industry, Hunter products including the Pilot Command Center Software, will remain in high demand as Hunter Industries continues to innovate new solutions for golf course irrigation.
Hunter Industries is a company that is driven by innovating and has continually transformed irrigation within the golf industry.

Hunter Industries’ quality and innovation has positioned the company well to take advantage of future projects in the game for years to come.
