In 2019, Rain Bird Australia boldly changed their Australian distribution model, and appointed Living Turf as ‘Master Distributor for Golf Products’.
The phrase ‘The Perfect Partnership’ embodies the vision that was Irrigation + Agronomy belonged together, in the same conversation, and managed by the same distribution partner. Once appointed as Rain Bird’s agronomy partner, Living Turf added irrigation experts in every major territory, ensuring that golf course managers were only one phone call away from sales, service and support. Whether it be fault finding, product selection, system planning or staff education, the accessibility Australian turf managers have to Rain Bird sales and support was ground-breaking.
In 2021 at Rain Bird’s Global Awards Ceremony, the Australian business model and the partnership was acknowledged as a stand-out success. Living Turf was further recognised by winning a number of key awards.
The first award for Living Turf was ‘The Topflight Award’, for outstanding representation by a distributor in their region. Only a handful from Rain Bird’s global distribution network have received this recognition.
The second award was for the ‘International Salesperson of the Year’, and this was won by Tyson Riley, from Living Turf WA. This award recognises the individual sales person who “moved the needle” the most in their region. This is an outstanding achievement by Tyson, who was quick to acknowledge his Living Turf team mates.
