Founded in 1962 by Henry Browning, Wessex Farm Machinery took its name from being within the old County of Wessex. The aim was to provide robust and reliable farm machinery, and it was successful from the off. The British built Wessex Scrubmaster, and the Fieldmaster topper, imported from New Zealand were leaders in the field. Margie James who worked for Wessex from 1978 until 2015 states; “both machines sold by the lorry load. They were so reliable and robust, and we built up a great relationship with our dealers during this time.”. Wessex still sells parts for the Scrubmaster dating from around 1970, an excellent testimony to the strength of the machines. It attributes its success to the dealer support, and the company ethics to provide reliable machinery.
