WeatherTec was founded in the early 1970’s by a group of farmers and investors. William H. Rogers, a grower in the south valley, soon after that, bought the entire company. Rogers was farming more than 22,000 acres in Bakersfield, Lost Hills, and Cantua Creek. He was doing well, but after meeting with a salesperson from WeatherTec, changed his operations over to their impact sprinklers.
The result was so superior, and he liked the product so much that he bought the company. WeatherTec was originally owned by a group of farmers and investors, until purchased by Bill Rogers and is still family-owned and operated with Bill’s son Nick Rogers as President.
Unlike other sprinkler and irrigation company products, WeatherTec designs only for the agricultural industry. No turf, no commercial landscaping – only agriculture. Sprinklers are much more efficient than furrow irrigation. And, with the right products, it can be just as effective and efficient as drip irrigation.
Each and every sprinkler is individually water-tested to insure consistent performance and help customers make the best use of their limited water resources. Everyone at WeatherTec, from the President to the newest assembly person is driven to produce high-quality, durable, and efficient sprinkler irrigation products for growers and ag product dealers.
