About Seattle Services

History

With the support of his family, Ron Lambert established Seattle Services in 1978, initially selling pump-sets and TrailCo travelling irrigators. Responding to the needs of customers, Ron designed a compact, robust yet easy to operate travelling irrigator. This PaceMakerä was eventually released in the early 1980’s and became a favorite with many Tasmanian farmers. In 1983 Seattle Services was awarded the Power Farming Machine of the Year Award for its PaceMaker irrigator. Disaster struck Seattle Services in 1991 when fire destroyed workshops, equipment and vehicles. Many believed this to be the end for this small rural business. Never the less, Ron and his family were determined to rebuild, and with the support of family friends, loyal customers and employees, Seattle Services slowly but surely rose from the ashes to become the premier supplier of irrigation systems and services in Tasmania. Today, Seattle Services are the only manufacturer of travelling irrigators in the state. Since those early days, Seattle Services have continued to develop its products and services, but have also maintained the philosophy of always doing its best for the customer.

Today

In recent years, Seattle Services have become the sole agent for Reinke irrigation systems in Tasmania, including both pivot and linear irrigators. Mine dewatering has also become a major part of Seattle Services business. To support our mining and agricultural customers, Seattle Services has developed strong customer focussed support teams who can provide maintenance and repair services both in the field and in our purpose built workshops at Merseylea. Seattle Services is constantly striving to develop new and innovative solutions and designs to assist its customers. Today, we are leading research into new technologies and have also taken part in a number of projects with both the CSIRO and the Tasmanian Institute of Agricultural Research (TIAR).
