SSS Irrigation Ltd. (formerly Stu's Sprinkler Systems Ltd.) was born out of necessity, one man's vision and his ability to think outside the square.
The origins of the company begin in May 2004 when Stuart McNeill purchased a dry farm property with the intention to develop it as a deer unit. The farm was, at time of purchase, very unproductive. The need to find better ways to utilise what water was available, led Stu to seek alternatives to the current irrigation systems then available in the market place.
Initial enquiries showed that there were no sprinklers available that met his personal targets of long throw radius, high water volume and soft watering of crop and pasture. His background in mechanical engineering led him to design and fabricate his own units in stainless steel with a good deal of trial and error in the early stages, and ongoing development during the next few years. These proved to be very efficient but not commercially viable, as they were complex and time consuming to manufacture. The on-farm results were little short of spectacular.
