About Us

Gate-Valve (Duplicate)

RGD Corporation Pty Ltd is a Western Australian owned and operated company, which specialises in the manufacture of high quality irrigation and landscape lighting products. We also supply castings to the marine, mining, rail, and general engineering industries.

Ron Grant, whose family had a long history in the metal casting industry in Australia, founded the company in 1946. The business began supplying metal castings to a variety of manufacturers, and over the years expanded its manufacturing capabilities to include irrigation and garden lighting products.

RainLight

In 1995, RGD Corporation launched its RainLight division to provide the landscape lighting market with a range of quality, low voltage lights. All lights in the RainLight range are cast, machined, and assembled in the RGD factory in Perth, Western Australia.

In 2002, the RGD factory gained UL (Underwriters Laboratories Inc.) certification in the USA and CSA (Canadian Standard Association) standards approval, which enabled the company to manufacture RainLight lights for sale in the US and Canadian markets.

RGD has also gained IP68 certification for the majority of RainLight’s sealed lights. This is the highest approval available from Standards Australia, and recognised throughout Europe, the UK, Asia, and Australia. The IP68 approval guarantees complete protection against dust entry and protection against water entry during continuous submersion up to one-metre.

We are so confident in the quality of our RainLight range of products that we provide a 10-year guarantee against corrosion.
