On being selected as Irrigear Supplier of the Year for 2014, Michael Trimble, National Sales Manager for HR Product said "..totally unexpected... and really appreciative... and of course, the Irrigear group... we've been working with together for 15 years; Simon Treptow, Robbie Love, all the members, you guys have a great business model."

HR Products  was established in 1979 and is a wholesale supplier to retail irrigation, hardware, plumbing and rural stores. HR's Head Office is in Canning Vale Western Australia, with offices in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland.   HR Products and Irrigear Across Australia, business owners and managers rely on Irrigear to provide effective solutions in critical areas of water and industrial fluid management.

Irrigear General Manager Simon Treptow said “It's a real win for an Irrigear Supplier – it's purely based on how our Members see the supplier performing. Irrigear Store owners rank suppliers across a range of criteria including field representation effectiveness; supply chain efficiency; product quality; accounts receivable efficiency; value for money; innovation and supplier stability. To be named Irrigear Supplier of the Year is an acknowledgement of HR Products' overall standard of quality – it really sorts out the best from the average."
