Don and Shirley Tillotson established Southport Boring Company in the 1960’s. Southport Boring Company manufactured and specialised in the installation of Spear Pumps Systems & manufacturing of Full-Flow Sand Screens.
During the 1970’s Don and Shirley established Full Flow Sand Screens as a Manufacturing Company. In approximately 1980 Southport Boring Corporation changed direction from installing spear pumps to also installing irrigation systems and establishing a Pump & Irrigation shop in Bundall, trading as SBC Pumps & Irrigation.
In 1985 son Troy joined the family business as a trainee and later the Service/Maintenance Technician. Troy Tillotson registered Surfers Pumps & Irrigation in the early 1980’s but didn’t start trading until the early 1990’s. With a combined knowledge and history of servicing the Gold Coast.
The recent drought on the Gold Coast generated un-predicented demand for pump and irrigation products. To meet the demands of the market, Surfers Pumps & Irrigation redeveloped its entire product line.
The expansion of the product line prompted a change of business name from Surfers Pumps & Irrigation to SPI Water Services in 2009.
