Earlier this year Irrigation & Water Technologies (IWT) took over the manufacturing and distribution of its products in North America. IWT is the inventor of the world-leading Subsurface Textile Irrigation technology sold under the brand names KISSS and Ebb&Flow.

KISSS America has been trading in the US for several years and, under the new ownership, will continue to manufacture KISSS products in Colorado and distribute to resellers throughout North America.

“This is a significant step for KISSS America” said Steve Watt, IWT’s Chairman. “The company has achieved great momentum over the last few years and, with this new focus, we will finally bring what is regarded as the world’s most water-efficient irrigation system, to all segments of the irrigation industry in North America”.

KISSS Subsurface Textile Irrigation and the Ebb&Flow Nursery Mats have been operating successfully for over 10 years in some of the harshest climates in the world including, the USA, Canada, Australia and the Middle East.

With the realization by all levels of government that water is the most precious of resources and that conventional sprinklers and drip pipes are not conserving water enough, KISSS America’s products will now be available at a very relevant time.

Mr Watt continues, “We are delighted to open up this important technology to every irrigation segment in North America including residential homes, sporting fields, commercial sites, nurseries, greenhouses and farms for cropping. Additionally, by maintaining the manufacturing presence in the US, we also plan to export products to South America and Europe as part of a global strategy”.
