The History of McIntosh Engineering
Founded in 1951 by Bryant and his brother Bill McIntosh, McIntosh Brothers has grown to be one of the country’s top farm machinery manufacturers and the Manawatu’s largest crane hire company.
With Bryant trained as a fitter and turner, the pair saw an opening for jobbing engineers. They set up in a Palmerston North back section working in a shed they agreed to renovate as their side of a rent free deal for 6 months. They then moved to Grey Street. During this time they were mainly doing repairs; you name it, they repaired it.
Bill is still a strong influence in the company in his eighties. With it’s focus on customer needs and quality of product, the farming community continues to use McIntosh Farm Machinery equipment thoughout New Zealand and Australia.
This has been helped by a strong loyal New Zealand dealer network and an excellent representative in Australia. McIntosh Farm Machinery now makes forage wagons holding 7.8m3 to 25m2, tip trailers from 4.5t to 17t, single, double and trough bale feeders, manure spreaders 7.5 10.8 13.5 m3 and its new beater wagon from 12m3 to 20m3.
