Navillus is Sullivan spelled backwards! Paul Sullivan started Navillus Irrigation in 1985 originally just selling irrigation equipment. Over the years Paul sold irrigation equipment all across New York, New England and Maine. This coincided with the irrigation “evolution” from aluminum pipe with sprinklers, to aluminum pipe with hard hose reels, to irrigation pivots. By chance Paul was able to diversify the business into food waste disposal for a local food company. We do business with a small number of long term customers and handle their excess food wastes disposal year round.
Paul began contemplating retirement and approached Jim and Tom Jeffres in 2006 to sell his business. A deal was reached and the business was sold to Jim and Tom January 2007. Paul is now enjoying retirement as the business continues to live on in his legacy.
Tom’s son Jack is now head of sales and has been working to find ways to grow the business and develop positive relationships with customers.
