Company historyEdit

The company started building cabs from wood but soon progressed to tubular steel frames and later box section frames as the requirements called for rollbars and then safety cabs.

The early cabs were sold direct but then dealers started offering tham as an extra

The company worked with Massey Ferguson and Ford building Low profile cabs and small batches for niche market applications as well as the aftermarket cabs sold through dealers.

By the late 1980s the demand was sinificantly reduced due to manufactures building there own cabs and the increasingly strict noise regulations stopping the use of the basic designs in Europe and the US market. By 19995 the company decided to close down the manufactring side and now just supply parts support.

The restoration market has now increase demand for canvas covers, door handles etc for the early models. These are a wide rang of parts available but the company does not supply replacement metal panels.
