The Toro Co. has formed an alliance with ITT Flowtronex under which Toro distributors will now offer Flowtronex pump stations when golf courses are purchasing Toro irrigation products in the U.S. and Canada.
"By offering industry-leading Flowtronex pump stations as part of a complete irrigation package, our Toro distributors will be able to give superintendents tremendous value and efficiency. In addition to having one point of contact when acquiring a Toro irrigation system and Flowtronex pump station package, customers will also be able to realize the benefits of further product integration," said David Angier, marketing manager of golf irrigation for Toro.
"As part of this agreement, we are working closely with Flowtronex to increase the level of product integration and communication between Toro control systems and Flowtronex pump station software," Angier said. "Superintendents will have an unprecedented level of integration and control when they use Toro irrigation systems and Flowtronex pump stations."
Toro will be looking at additional enhancements in the future, such as expanding its National Support Network to include support for Flowtronex pump stations and extending the alliance to international markets.
