Hunter Social Responsibility Report

The Hunter Industries 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report examines data from our San Marcos and Tijuana locations, which conduct business for our Global Operations, Landscape Irrigation and Outdoor Lighting, and Hunter Custom Manufacturing divisions, to determine our impacts on the People we influence, the Planet we affect, and the Profits we generate. As we expand and formalize our CSR framework throughout 2018 and beyond, we look forward to including recently acquired Senninger Irrigation and Dispensing Dynamics in our reporting efforts.

A Word from Greg Hunter

As we enter our sixth year of reporting, we are recommitting to growing our leadership in sustainable manufacturing practices. Over the past two years, Hunter Industries acquired two companies: Senninger Irrigation — located in Clermont, Florida — and Dispensing Dynamics, based in City of Industry, California. These acquisitions have broadened Hunter’s footprint in two new geographies, adding to our corporate headquarters in San Marcos, California, and manufacturing center in Tijuana, Mexico.

Senninger is a leading designer and manufacturer of quality irrigation solutions for agricultural, horticultural, and industrial applications. Senninger's products concentrate on the global challenge of growing more crops with less water by providing precision low-pressure irrigation solutions. Dispensing Dynamics was established with the singular purpose to enhance our customers’ businesses by providing the world’s best dispensing solutions. Dispensing Dynamics focuses on away-from-home washroom dispensing products that combine sustainability with a world-class customer experience.

These additions to the Hunter family of companies precipitated a restructuring to a Strategic Business Unit (SBU) model focusing on Hunter’s existing core businesses of Residential, Commercial, and Golf Irrigation; Landscape and Architectural Lighting; and Custom Manufacturing. Support to these SBUs, as well as to Senninger and Dispensing Dynamics, is provided by groups focused on global operations, supply chain management, human resources, finance, and information systems.

The added complexity of our business has also necessitated a change to our CSR structure. We are currently evaluating options to best lead sustainability efforts in all locations. Beginning with stakeholder engagement, we are seeking to gain insights from current and new stakeholders, with the goal of updating our materiality metrics with fresh or reconfirmed goals. We will also be auditing Senninger and Dispensing Dynamics to better understand their social and environmental impacts. The goal of these efforts is

to enter 2019 with a redefined sustainability reporting structure, identification of science-based goals we can accurately track, and to provide a 2018 report that provides information based upon production locations and business units. Lastly, Hunter Industries continues to be a family-owned business. The shareholders are committed to sustainable manufacturing and believe that it is an integral part of our core values: customer satisfaction, innovation, family, and social responsibility.

Our hope is that by leading through open reporting and continual process improvements, we will inspire similar efforts by our customers, vendors, and competitors in the diverse industries we serve.
