Total Eden and Ruralco businesses Rodwells, Ruralco Water and Ruralco Property have opened their doors at a new Shepparton hub focusing on agro-water consultancy and services.
Total Eden executive general manager Peter Weaver said the hub was a one-stop shop for customers to seek out the best advice.
‘‘With Total Eden, Rodwells, and the Ruralco Water and Property businesses now in-house together, we not only have the demonstrated knowledge and capacity to provide the best irrigation services to the region, we can offer a holistic approach to water management, and our other business offerings, in one convenient location,’’ Mr Weaver said.
The new Total Eden hub includes extra floor space, allowing greater flexibility in the design, configuration and construction of water projects, as well as state-of-the-art poly fabrication and other machinery.
Rob Rye, the founder and original owner, built an iconic business that was to become the leading provider of water and irrigation infrastructure services in the Greater Shepparton Region. After this business was integrated into the Ruralco Group, and joined forces with another iconic irrigation business, Archards Irrigation in Cohuna, Total Eden invested heavily to extend capability in Shepparton.
Total Eden Shepparton regional manager Cedric Geffen said the hub was the next step in the evolution of the business.
‘‘As Total Eden, we have been proud to consolidate leading water business Rob Rye Irrigation to bring together decades of regional knowledge for our customers,’’ Mr Geffen said.
‘‘We identify where efficiencies can be attained and provide the right product design, fabrication, supply, installation, ongoing maintenance, advice and support to save the client on their water use and time spent in-field.’’
