About Us

From Grass Roots to Industry Leader

Advanced Irrigation Systems Limited (formerly Northern Irrigation Limited) was founded in 1989 by Peter Barwell to cater for all facets of turf irrigation. In 2015 Advanced Irrigation Systems was purchased by PGG Wrightson Limited.

We are currently the only company in New Zealand solely dedicated to turf irrigation. Our mission is to provide quality irrigation solutions utilising Rain Bird irrigation products.

The Best Suppliers

Since 1997 we have been an authorised importer and distributor of Rain Bird irrigation products and Spears PVC fittings.

In 2004 Advanced Irrigation Systems were appointed as the sole authorised New Zealand distributor for Rain Bird's golf irrigation products. In 2004 we also became importers and distributors for Aqua Master fountains and aerators. In addition to our imported products we have long established local distribution arrangements with Marley NZ Limited and other equipment suppliers. This means we can provide quality product in a timely manner for all parts of an irrigation system.

Early in our company's development it was recognised that quality design and advisory services coupled with good after-sales support were essential in the specialised turf irrigation market.

Our goal of quality solutions and back-up support has lead to the development of the irrigation concept called Advanced Irrigation Systems. This concept is the formalising of the quality aspects we now incorporate in all our projects.
