History of Rain Bird | Over 80 Years of Irrigation Innovation - Video
Rain Bird has a rich history spanning over eight decades in the irrigation industry. It all started with an inventive farmer who had a great idea to create a more water-efficient irrigation system. In 1933, California citrus grower Orton Englehart developed the first horizontal action impact drive sprinkler and partnered with his friend Clem LaFetra to sell it. Since then, Rain Bird has only continued to expand and offer new irrigation solutions to customers in agriculture, landscaping, and other industries.
