We've Grown With You
In 1977, the late Ron Graetz and his son, Brian, started a small irrigation business as a sideline to their vineyard and market garden in Nuriootpa. Ron Graetz, a well-known water diviner in the region, saw a gap in the market and began stocking PVC pipes. As demand quickly rose, the range expanded to include drippers, filters, pumps, valves and other irrigation supplies.
A local Barossa Company
Working out of a small shed on the family property, the business also expanded with additional buildings being added to the site to cater for their growing operations and shopfront.
In May 1993, Brian became the sole proprietors of Graetz Irrigation. Their dedication, passion and vision has helped create the Graetz Irrigation of today — a local Barossa company which is an undisputed leader in its field
