Ray Mayne Hose and Fittings Ltd is a privately-owned irrigation company founded by Ray and Noeleen Mayne. Ray and the team are based in a purpose-built premise at 30 J B Cullen Drive, in the Ashburton Business Estate on the northern edge of Ashburton.
Owner, Ray Mayne, said the new 12,000 square metre site has been purpose-built to cater specifically to the needs of the irrigation business. All the products are under one roof to allow for customers and staff to have better access to irrigation parts and products.
Ray Mayne and the team have been designing, supplying, installing and maintaining irrigation systems for farms, lifestyle blocks and businesses throughout the country for 29 years. They employ around 30 staff, who include an experienced team of accredited designers on hand to design and custom fit an irrigation system to suit any land shape, size or industry. The team works with their clients to get a plan to suit everyone’s needs.
They are the principal importer and distributor of Reinke irrigation systems into New Zealand – a system that is light weight, more efficient and longer-lasting than comparable systems. The Reinke name is recognised as a world leader, especially for their Trimble GPS guidance which can guide multiple systems off a single GPS base station. This guidance option is operating on many swing arm corner centre pivot units and lateral move systems. There are numerous examples operating in many areas in the South Island.
Ray Mayne Hose and Fittings factory trained certified technicians have had many years of experience working on Reinke systems and are highly skilled in all aspects of Reinke equipment. Over the winter season, many clients have had their Reinke Pivots and Laterals serviced by Ray’s technicians. Reinke Manufacturing have a dedicated online training schedule, which each technician is encouraged to use to ensure their skills are continually being kept up to date with the latest technology that Reinke provide.
Today, an irrigation system is a technically designed system, which is a substantial investment and needs to operate efficiently and effectively to ensure that all that investment will be readily used for many years.
Among the staff are a specialist pump crew, who can remove and install pumps for service and maintenance in any location at any time – and the specialist Reinke staff who are constantly developing their skills to keep up to date with the latest technology available for their clients.
In the warehouse, Ray Mayne Hose and Fittings stock a range of Snap-tite irrigation hoses and can source any irrigation associated products for any job. They also manufacture the TurboRain brand of large travelling irrigators and are a distributor for the Pleuger range of Submersible Irrigation pumps through Pump Supplies NZ Ltd.
