With roots dating back to 1914, The Toro Company has grown into a leading worldwide provider of innovative solutions for the outdoor environment. The Toro family of brands now includes turf and landscape maintenance, snow and ice management, underground utility construction, rental and specialty construction, and irrigation and outdoor lighting solutions.
Customers around the globe depend on the company’s products to help maintain golf courses, sports fields, public green spaces, commercial and residential properties, construction sites and agricultural operations.
Toro entered the golf industry in 1919 when the company mounted five reel cutting units onto a Toro tractor to assist in maintaining the fairways at The Minikahda Club in Minneapolis.
Today, Toro is the industry leader in every golf equipment category in which it competes — from mowers for greens, fairways, roughs and surrounds to sprayers, aerators, bunker rakes and greens rollers. Toro also leads the way in golf course irrigation systems, reaching over 125 countries.
As the only company that offers both turf equipment and irrigation solutions for golf, Toro is the game’s largest player in the turf care category. Over 14% of the company’s $4.51 billion in fiscal 2022 was connected to the golf industry.
Thousands of golf courses around the world — including public, private, municipal and resort facilities — use Toro® products. Among them are St Andrews Links in Scotland, Pebble Beach Golf Links in California, National Links Trust in Washington, D.C., and PGA Frisco in Texas.
For more than 100 years, Toro has been committed to listening to customers and innovating to solve their most important challenges. The company has a long history of groundbreaking product introductions, including the first lithium-ion powered greens mower — the Greensmaster® eFlex — as well as the GeoLink® Solutions Autonomous Fairway Mower, which began field testing in 2022.
Sustainability is also engrained in Toro’s purpose — not only in the way the company develops new products and technologies, but also in its approach to fostering long-term customer relationships and giving back to communities. Toro is active in a range of charitable efforts, including support for initiatives to grow the game of golf.
Toro is a brand known for its high-quality products and strong customer relationships. Coupled with its passion for innovation, these traits have propelled Toro into being a leading supplier of maintenance equipment and irrigation solutions for the golf industry around the globe.
