Komet is one of the leading manufacturers of water distribution devices worldwide. Our products are used in agricultural, industrial and turf applications. We believe that in today’s world, rather than inventing new promises, it is far more important to respect, uphold and build on the customer promises that our company was founded on. In addition to providing the highest quality irrigation equipment, we want to make sure our customers have water application products that operate at the highest levels of efficiency and effectiveness, which in turn will help to limit the waste of our natural resources. We believe in building long lasting relationships with our customers. This gives us the opportunity to understand their needs, analyze how our products are meeting those needs, and to continue to improve. The high degree of interlinking creates transparency and the direct access to all the product data models thus assuring our constant quality standard in the global market.
