History of Darling Irrigation
Darling Irrigation commenced life in 2004 as a creative transformation of a rural merchandise store in Bourke, Darling Fertilisers.
This business, owned by the Maroulis family since 1972, was operated by Theofanis and Bill Maroulis.
The millennium drought hit all agricultural related businesses particularly hard on the Western Plains of New South Wales. It was this catalyst that sparked the reinvention of the business, at the hands of Sam and Phoebe Maroulis, into today’s Darling Irrigation.
In 2005 ‘Kings Hire and Sales’ was purchased in Narromine and was quickly transformed into a water & Irrigation store, bolstering retail sales.
A few years later the business moved into design and installation of centre pivot, linear move irrigators and boom irrigators for broadacre customers.
After joining forces with Australian owned agribusiness, AGnVET Services in 2007, Darling Irrigation strengthened it’s wider business network offering back end support and a stable platform for continued growth.
The AGnVET Services network of businesses includes over 60 branches and 100 specialist advisors in agronomy and animal health, through various locally branded businesses incorporating:
