Agricultural Requirements was established in 1948 as an International Harvester Dealership for the Lockyer Valley, the salad bowl of Queensland. The Case-IH franchise today remains the company's flagship of its agricultural machinery range.
Over the years Agricultural Requirements diversified into other pursuits such as irrigation and manufacturing and today manufactures the AR Boom Irrigator at its Gatton site. The engineering division also produces Sprayers, Square Plows and Pulverisers as well as modifying machinery for horticultural use. Agricultural Requirements' Engineering Division manufactures three main products :
AR Boom Irrigators (Low Pressure Water Driven) in models from 42m to 94m,
AR Boom Sprayers and
AR Square Plow.
Many irrigation components are produced in the Gatton Workshop as well, including valves, risers, column and shaft, sockets, stands, pump bases and aluminium fabrication. They also carry-out jobbing work for local councils, businesses and farmers.
