World attachments

Geith International is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary this year.
Originally called P. F. Doggett Eng. the company was established in 1959 in Slane, Ireland by local man, Peter F Doggett, to produce buckets for the expanding land drainage market in Ireland. The company’s product for many years and, even to this day in some quarters, became widely known as a Doggett Bucket.
The land reclamation industry in Ireland and the UK continued to be an area of growth for the company from the 1960s to the 1980s. At the same time, Geith expanded into the front loader attachment market and agricultural machinery, including custom made attachments such as grapples and jib arms for telehandlers.
In 1972, Geith set up the company’s first base in the UK in Birmingham in the West Midlands, followed by operations in Manchester, Tillicoultry in Clackmannanshire in Scotland and Tredegar in South Wales. With increasing success in the US market, Geith opened a new presence in the country in 1985.
In 1997, Geith was purchased by Powerscreen International before being bought by management the following year. Further expansion brought a new outlet near Paris aimed at the French market in 2002.
Manufactured at the company’s plant in Slane, the Geith range includes general and heavy duty mini-excavator buckets from 1–5 tonne; midi-excavator buckets from 5-10 tonne and heavy excavator buckets from 10-80 tonne. The range also comprises ditching/grading buckets; angle-tilt buckets; quick hitches and speciality products such as rippers, grapples, clamps and riddle and trapezoidal buckets.
Overall, Geith produces 15 product families of buckets in 10 weight categories, with five styles and bucket widths from 229-2133 mm (9-84 in) in 16 segments and a wide variety of wearpart or GET options. This provides over four million possible combinations with which the company covers over 30 makes of excavator.
The company’s engineering and design expertise developed over the last 50 years will ensure that Geith continues to be a leading worldwide provider of attachment products for excavators from 1 to 80 tonne.
