The Toro Company has acquired Xiamen Xiangfeng Water Saving Equipment Co.
Xiamen Xiangfeng is located in China’s Xiamen City and produces drip irrigation products, sprinklers, emitters and filters for agriculture, landscaping and green house production.
“As we look to the future, water availability and increasing demand for food are driving awareness for the importance of more efficient forms of irrigation,” says Michael Drazan, vice president of Toro’s Global Micro Irrigation Business.
Because China is important to the micro-irrigation market, the acquisition will help Toro grow its presence in that particular area.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
