Senninger Irrigation has joined the Hunter Industries family of companies, effective Jan. 4. Senninger and Hunter have been strategic partners since 2004 through an OEM relationship.

“Our history of success together as separate organizations provides a solid indicator of our positive future as a unified team,” says Senninger president James Burks. “We mutually respected and admired each other as reputable companies and felt if we came together, we could learn from each other, realize economies of scale, and be stronger than if we operated separately.” 

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’s mission is to deliver valued products and services, grow the company conscientiously, and remain true to its culture.

The 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,” says Hunter CEO Greg Hunter. “We are very excited about working together with their teams to bring innovations to our shared channels.”

“There has been an opportunity for both companies, over three decades, to casually observe each other’s development and behavior, providing insight into the character and reputation of each respective company, their founders and management. Cultural alignment was a key factor for both organizations in opening discussions focused on an acquisition,” says Burks.

The two companies expect to continue providing the high-quality products and services their customers have come to expect.
