||ABOUT MICROJET® IRRIGATION SYSTEMS
Microjet® Irrigation is based in Cape Town, South Africa where all our design, development and manufacture is done in our factory. We manufacture a large range of irrigation products from our original Microjet® Sprinkler to our Emjay® fittings and our flagship range of Full Flow® compression fittings. Our signature is one of quality! Whatever comes out of our factory is made of the highest possible quality and we NEVER compromise on this aspect for the sake of price. "Price is temporary - Quality is permanent".
Microjet started up in 1970 as a small plastics injection moulding company in Epping, Cape Town. We started by specialising in small precision plastic components made for many different industries, from fashion to electronics. During early 1971 the Microjet sprinkler was developed and patented. - This was a World First and very soon the Microjet sprinkler was being sold internationally. Microjet, along with the Israeli developed drip irrigation system, started the global move to low volume, low pressure irrigation systems which have revolutionised the irrigation industry. It is fair to say that the success of the Microjet was largely due to the failure of drip systems in the deep, sandy soils of the fruit growing areas of the Western Cape Province of South Africa. The Microjet arrived at the perfect time to solve this problem and grew from there. We are proud to say that this small miracle was invented and developed right here in Cape Town, South Africa and is still going strong today. Of course, when anything as good as Microjet appears, copies are inevitable. Today the humble Microjet is copied all over the world by scores of different manufacturers and sold by many names and in many forms.
Here at Microjet we have grown into a company that only manufactures our own products and specialises in products for the irrigation industry. We strive to continually develop new and exciting products to help solve our customers problems and attend to their needs. To this end, further developments over the years have led to the creation of many more irrigation products. From Stakes, stake assemblies and rigid riser pipes to support the Microjets, to barbed pipe fittings and compression fittings to join and repair irrigation pipes, and manifold systems and hose end products to make irrigation easy and efficient.
Our products are sold in many different areas of irrigation for many different applications. From agriculture to domestic gardens to turf and landscaping, Microjet Irrigation Systems has the solution for almost any irrigation problem. We have a wide dealer network in South Africa and our products are available from most hardware and irrigation retailers.
