The company’s roots go back to 1972 when after an apprenticeship in Ireland and 2 years working in tool and die design in South Africa, Billy Warke returned to Ireland and with his father set up what became the family business, Coleraine Lawnmower Services.
A further 10 years of oil-field manufacturing experience in Canada and some 15 years after the family business was born, Billy Warke returned again to Ireland ready to face some new challenges. CLS equipment hire company was set up and by customer demand, research and development work began on pedestrian aerators, it was in 1989 that the first Groundsman machine was sold. Due to the success of this early design, Groundsman Industries was formed and commenced trading in 1990.
New products were developed and it was not long before larger premises were found and production output continually increased. The turf cutter range and Flexblade collector were developed and produced.
The expanded product range meant that a further expansion in working area was required.
In 2003 Groundsman Industries relocated to it’s current factory which has 16,000 sq ft of working space with plenty of room for future expansion.
