Rain Bird Since 1933
Rain Bird Corporation creates irrigation technology that helps shape the way your future grows. Founded in 1933, our 4,000+ products sustain life’s essentials and support your green spaces, guided by a commitment to the Intelligent Use of WaterTM. We draw on nearly a century of expertise to serve a wide variety of industries, blending natural design and human ingenuity to make water work for everyone.
Headquartered in Azusa, California, we were founded during California’s agricultural boom. Since the beginning, Rain Bird has produced and offered the industry’s broadest range of irrigation products for farms, golf courses, sports arenas, commercial developments, and homes in more than 130 countries around the world.
For almost 100 years, Rain Bird has been awarded more than 450 patents worldwide, including the first in 1935 for the original horizontal action impact drive sprinkler (U.S. Patent #1,997,901), which revolutionized the food production industry and ushered in a new era in irrigation. In fact, the original impact sprinkler was designated a historic landmark in 1990 by the American Society of Agricultural Engineers.
Nurturing the world’s green spaces is a big responsibility.
And at Rain Bird, it’s only a small part of how we’re growing a better future. We’re innovating to stay ahead of the challenges faced by both our customers and our planet,
designing and manufacturing products that will shape the future of irrigation. Our global engineering, marketing, manufacturing, and sales teams work together to develop innovative water-conserving products that include irrigation sprinklers, dripline, pumps, and timers/controllers. Today, we offer more than 4,000 water-saving irrigation products and services with offices and manufacturing facilities in Arizona, Alabama, Mexico, France, and elsewhere around the world.
