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.
Today, RGD has agents in all states of Australia and our products are sold throughout the US, UK, Canada, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region.
Award Winning Manufacturer
In 1994, RGD received an award for “Outstanding Performance in Business” presented by BRW and Price Waterhouse. In the same year, RGD was appointed to the “Top 100 List” of the “Fastest Growing Private Companies” within Australia.
High Quality Products
RGD Corporation is renowned in Australia and throughout the world for the quality of our irrigation and landscape lighting products. We supply a wide range of products, including:
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.
Foundry & Engineering Services
RGD’s Australian manufacturing facilities are located in Perth, Western Australia. Our factory is fully equipped to provide a range of Foundry and Engineering Services, including:
Gravity Die-Cast Aluminium
Only high quality Rio Tinto ingot metals are used for reliability and continuity of production.
Gravity Die-Cast Bronze
Premium Quality AB1 Bronze
Produced to specification, this process gives a superior finished product with more accurate tolerances than sand-cast bronze.
Ideal for jobbing work, metals include copper, brass, bronze (various grades) and aluminium. We currently supply castings to the marine, mining, rail, and general engineering industries.
This exciting process allows us to manufacture very accurate castings in smaller cross sections. Metals include: stainless steel, brass, and bronze.
RGD have been leaders in the field with our Windmill and associated products. We stock parts for the Windpump and Southern Cross. Upon the closure of W D Moore & Co in 2015, we took over the spares parts of the Yellowtail windmills as well. We also offer brand new complete Southern Cross Windmills as agents for these iconic mills. Our associated parts are second to none offering our own Raindrop and Alderdice brands.
