Tony Dilluvio, President 

A lifelong resident of Westchester County, Tony attended Briarcliff High School. After receiving a degree in chemical engineering from Manhattan College, Tony spent ten years working as a staff engineer for Union Carbide. Shortly thereafter, he accepted a position as a superintendent of heavy and highway construction. It was here that Tony gained years of experience coordinating and managing service crews as he was responsible for overseeing the construction of bridges in and around NY City. With a growing interest in sales and a passion for technology, Tony went to work selling chemical process software for Aspen  Tech. His experience there allowed him to get involved in the  Irrigation business as a salesmen and designer for Aqua Turf. He  became a co-owner in 2003.

As a co-owner, Tony handles sales and operations for Aqua Turf. He designs and oversees the installation of every project, irrigation or lighting. After meeting with customers and evaluating their specific needs and concerns, Tony uses his education and experiences as an engineer to create custom solutions. Servicing the unique needs of over 3500 clients, he has designed pump systems, large scale water features, rainwater harvesting systems, and smart irrigation solutions. With a passion for technological innovation, and careful attention to conservation, Tony’s designs are simple and efficient.

Tony has always maintained that the most important thing in this business is customer satisfaction. That is why he is involved in every step of the process. While initial consultation and excellent design are certainly important, it is ultimately the installation and functionality of the system that matters most. Tony works closely with his installation crews and service technicians to make sure the company’s promise is delivered and the customer receives exactly what they want. Understanding that irrigation concerns must be responded to with a sense of urgency, especially during the summer months, Tony answers phone calls and replies to emails after hours and on weekends.

With both experience and interest in business ownership, Lucien understands the importance of quality service and support.
