Lomman Industries was formed as a family partnership in 1979. Laurie Lomman, the former senior partner, had operated his own irrigation business for some 20 years, specialising in the Virginia and Adelaide Hill areas, servicing market gardeners and orchardists. Laurie has since retired. Sons Roger and Wayne were registered master plumbers at the time and elected to join the irrigation business and today are involved in all facets including design, supply and installation. In 1987 the business gained another partner, Brenton Sims, who had previously worked in sales and design at Hardie Irrigation for 15 years. Brenton’s specialty is irrigation design, having overseen Hardies irrigation design/training office for several years in the early ’80’s.
Think Water Adelaide (previously trading as Lomman Irrigation Pty Ltd complementing the merchandising firm Lomman Industries until April 2015) was formed in 2004, as a supplier of ‘turn-key’ irrigation and Water Management Projects and supplies a broad range of general irrigation and water management products. The Directors are Roger and Wayne Lomman and Brenton and Anne Sims.
