Our Company

Gissing Farm Equipment Ltd. is a 4th generation family of specialists in engineering and fabrication. The founder was George Edward Gissing.

In 1938 during the hardship of the 2nd world war years George started recycling and repairing vehicles. When the war finally had ended, he expanded his small business by buying surplus ex-military vehicles. These he then broke and used the axels and wheels to build some of the first all steel farm trailers to be pulled by tractors (ie the grey fergies). These trailers were called Farm Master Trailers.

In 1950 George was joined in business by his son Ralph and they carried on with the business format until the early 1960’s. The business diversified and altered direction a little by moving away from only agricultural to also the building and refurbishment of HGV road trucks and trailers including some Heavy haulage & specialist engineering.

The third generation to join the family business was Mark who joined in 1977. With a different view to engineering, moving the company towards the specialist sector designing and manufacturing a large amount of the countires bespoke one off builds. The fourth generation of Gissing in the business consists of Wayne who joined in 2006 and Jason who joined in 2007. The family ethos of providing a solid individual tailor quality made product remains as strong and as important today as it did in 1938. Many repeat customers are second, third and fourth generations themselves who’s forefathers dealt with George and Ralph, just as they are now doing with Mark, Wayne and Jason. In 2007 Jason & Wayne formed Gissing Farm Equipment to meet the growing expantion into the Slurry & Waste sector, with work fully booked infront of them the company continues to grow strong.

Each individual customer is important and the majority of our customers are long term. The customer base is from Scotland to Cornwall in the uk and reaches far beyond to the rest of the world. The largest Heavy Haulage outfit built was for the then CAP Coppermine’s in Chile South America.

The work and customer has always been diverse from a agricultural trailer for a small farm all the way to truck trailer work for a prominent F1 racing team. With bale collectors to heavy haulage for a pipe line company in between.
