Ernest J. Bousquet (E.J.) started out in the sprinkler contracting business in 1958 as a part-time venture. E.J. and his sons installed sprinklers on the weekends, and full-time during the summer. This business operated under the name Lawn Rainmakers.

In 1970, it was decided to incorporate the contracting business as E.J. Bousquet & Sons. Over the next few years, the company became a major irrigation contractor.

In late 1975, the Bousquet’s decided that the sprinkler company’s real future was as a wholesale distributor. As a result, the name was changed to REAMS Sprinkler Supply Co. The first store was opened in Omaha, Nebraska in 1976 with the Rain Bird product line of irrigation parts.

Today, REAMS stocks irrigation parts from numerous manufacturers, in addition to selling a variety of items for the irrigation and landscape industry.

From its humble beginnings as a family business started on a kitchen table, REAMS has grown into a leader in the industry as a regional distributor in four states.
