A Little Gessner History

Gessner has been proudly serving Australian agriculture and industry for over 45 years, and our solid reputation for manufacturing quality equipment has also seen increasing demand in many international markets. 

Founded by Noel and Lindsay Gessner back in 1975, Gessner started off building silo bases and implement hitches. Today, Gessner has grown to be at the forefront of design and manufacture of equipment solutions, with the main product lines being tillage equipment and planters for use on-farm, along with a strong component of earthmoving attachments. 

In 2013, Gessner Industries was purchased by another set of brothers, Michael and Jim O’Connor, the former owners of MPH Rural, and owners of Fortitude Brewing Company. They have brought a fresh focus to Gessner’s capability and capacity, and built upon the combined industry experience and expertise of many long-term Gessner staff.
