Sunrise Irrigation and Sprinklers, Palm Harbor, Florida, ranked on Inc. magazine’s top 5000 list of fastest growing American companies. This recognition comes with 425% average revenue growth over the past three years.

Ranking number 1,078 on the 2020 Inc. 5000, Sunrise attributes its success to quality products, highly trained technicians and above all, customer service. “It’s been a company milestone for us to rank in the top 5,000,” says Joe Swett, CEO of Sunrise Irrigation. “Little did we know we would almost break the top 1,000 in our first year of recognition on the list.”

Over the last few years, Sunrise Irrigation has focused on water conservation through Water Star Certification. In 2019 alone, Sunrise estimates they saved their customers over 20,000,000 gallons of water through installation, retrofitting, maintenance and pressurization of their irrigation systems.

In July of 2020, Sunrise purchased its third commercial property to accommodate for current and future growth. “With over 35 vans on the road, we needed more space for product, parking and most importantly training,” says Garry Hall, chief operating officer. “We plan on creating a one-of-a-kind facility for ongoing training of current technicians as well as a place for cultivation of new techs.”

In 2019 Sunrise Irrigation and Sprinklers opened sister divisions, Sunrise Electric and Sunrise Heat and Air to better service the Tampa Bay Area. “Our electric and AC companies are growing at the same rate, if not faster, than irrigation. We attribute our growth to our top-rated customer service and a company culture like no other,” says Swett. “Sunrise is the type of company people love to work for and our customers can tell.”
