The story

On a trip to the Turkish countryside, Wynand & Hélana Ueckermann noticed flourishing crops, and among them, bright orange fittings.

Wynand stopped and investigated. When he could pick up an entire line on his own, he talked with the farmer and realised how affordable and extremely durable the system was. That day, he made a choice that would change the lives of his family, forever.

From this Quick Coupling Irrigation System, a dream was born - Afriq Water. A dream to make irrigation more accessible to all, and make Africa greener.

Today, Afriq Water manufactures dripline, LDPE & HDPE, and Fertilizer Tanks and supplies Southern Africa with a wide variety of dripline fittings, as well as the Quick Coupling Irrigation Systems that started it all, from a factory located on the family plot - clocking in at over 1 000 m2.
