Rain Bird is the only irrigation company that actively maintains a physical presence throughout Europe, with fully owned companies operating from Sweden to Turkey and from Germany to Spain.
In Europe, it all began in 1972, when a handful of Americans and Europeans founded Rain Bird Europe. In 1988, the Rain Bird Deutschland branch was set up to cover Central Europe.
A few years later, Rain Bird Iberica began to operate in Spain and Portugal and then Rain Bird Sverige A.B. was acquired in Sweden for the Scandinavian market and to manufacture pump stations.
Our latest addition, Rain Bird Turkey, was established in Istanbul in 2003. Rain Bird sales, field service and technical personnel take an active role in their communities. They speak the language. They have firsthand knowledge of soil and climate conditions. They are well versed in local business and regulatory environments.
A vast network of professional distributor/contractor-partners makes Rain Bird products and spare parts available in all European countries.
