Hunter Industries has presented the Hunter Trailblazer Award to Aqua Engineering, Inc.
Hunter has a tradition of recognizing individuals who have made significant contributions to the irrigation industry. The Trailblazer award is meant to showcase professionals whose innovation, leadership, and forward thinking not only benefit Hunter Industries, but also the irrigation industry as a whole. It has been a tradition of presenting the award to an individual; however, Aqua Engineering is one of the few to be recognized as a group that makes great contributions to the industry.
Aqua Engineering, Inc. is an irrigation engineering and water management firm headquartered in Fort Collins, Colorado. The firm specializes in water-conserving irrigation system design and management for aesthetic and functional landscapes and agricultural endeavors.
The Aqua Engineering staff was presented with a dramatic wildlife print from photographer Thomas Mangelsen’s “Images of Nature” photo gallery. “We are both excited and humbled by this award,” says Aqua Engineering President Robert Beccard. “We are passionate about what we do and pride ourselves in providing innovative water solutions to irrigation project challenges. This award will serve as an attractive reminder of how far we’ve come in 35 years.”
