History timelineEdit

  • 1976 - Redrock Engineering was established by Mr Sam Hughes, with the objective of manufacturing mobile farm equipment.
  • 1981 - Redrock Engineering had progressed steadily, having developed a range of agricultural trailers, tankers and slurry pumps. The Redrock brand name was growing in strength due the excellent build quality and engineering of the products. By the spring of 1981 demand had grown so much, new premises with 12,000 sq ft were now needed.
  • 1986 - Demand for Redrock products was growing; the Redrock brand was well known throughout the country. Alongside trailers, tankers and pumps, more products were in development as the market grew for agricultural machinery. A range of blockcutters were, developed and were a number one seller for the company.
  • 1990s - Now with premises spanning over 55,000 sq ft, Redrock grew from strength to strength, boasting a range of products from agricultural trailers to industrial dumper’s and low loaders. The Redrock slurry pump was top of it class and the range of Redrock blockcutters were well known throughout Ireland and the UK. As farming become more and more advanced and farmers realised the importance of a good feed ration, again Redrock were there to offer a range of paddle and vari-cut diet mixers to quench the demand for this market. At the end of the 90s new markets were opened up in mainland Europe and further a field such as USA, Australia, New Zealand, and some Asian countries.
  • 1999 - A new era was born, and the company was taken in a new direction by the development and manufacture of the companies first ever telehandler. The TH300 pivot steer was designed and developed by Sam Hughes who recognised the need for an agile and versatile handler on farms. The first TH300 was delivered on Christmas Eve 1999, and is still working hard on a large-scale vegetable farm in Co Armagh.
  • 2001 - After the success of the TH300, the TH500 was developed as a machine for contractors who needed power on demand. This 175hp machine proved more than enough for the Irish market and proved even more popular in the European market. To this day Redrock Engineering Ltd, still manufacture Pivot steer loaders. The TH300 was replaced with a smaller more powerful TH280s and the TH500 was refined and replaced by the TH500s.
