Regional Irrigation Leaders Merge

Lad Irrigation now provides the largest coverage of irrigation products and services in the Columbia Basin with 7 retail locations.


As of July 1, 2019, Valmont Northwest, formerly owned and operated under worldwide Valmont Industries, is now part of Lad Irrigation Company.

Lad Irrigation was founded in 1957 with three employees installing and servicing agricultural irrigation systems in the Moses Lake region. In 1967 Lad Irrigation became a Valley Dealer and began canvasing the region with the Valley Product. Staying true to its beginnings, Lad excelled in pump station and water delivery design and installation and has grown to be a regional industry leader in Irrigation. Lad has steadily grown and expanded with branch offices now in Moses Lake, Othello, George, and Royal City. Lad has expanded its product and service offerings to accommodate market needs for all irrigation system types following their vision of offering the most complete irrigation solutions on the market.

Valmont Northwest began operating in Pasco in 1975, and saw continuous growth in the lower Columbia Basin, eventually adding satellite stores in Sunnyside, Basin City, and Hermiston. Valmont Northwest saw tremendous growth including the most recent construction of a new facility in Pasco, complete with Parts, Sales, welding shop, and training center.

Discussions began in spring 2019 between Valmont Industries and Lad Irrigation to combine the two industry leaders in eastern Washington, providing a united and uniform platform for offering product and service for the entire region. Today the business is overseen by Brek Tolman, General Manager for Lad Irrigation, along with President Randy Gubler.

Lad Irrigation is an employee-owned and operated business with 90+ employees committed to growth and training to better support the communities we serve.

“In the Columbia Basin, water is the lifeblood of all agricultural production.  Our goal is to supply a one-stop design, service and equipment expertise to make the best use of that water – to improve quality of life, yields and efficiency.”- Brek Tolman

Lad Irrigation now maintains 7 locations to serve the Columbia Basin and Yakima Valley including Moses Lake, Pasco, Othello, George, Royal City, Basin City and Sunnyside.
