Another outstanding North Coast forest's product (2)

AE Gibson and Sons have evolved into one of Australian's leading manufacturers of hi-tech timber processing equipment. They operate from a small village named Kendall, between Port Macquarie and Taree on the mid north coast of NSW. Kendall has a long history of timber cutting and milling, dating back to the 1860's and now has a population of about 3000 people.

The first image is of a Twin Saw Log Edger manufactured by Gibsons and operating happily at Australian Solar Timbers at Kempsey. The second image is a Automatic Timber Stacker also manufactured by Gibsons. Recently the company has undertaken large structural steel building projects which complement the sawmill equipment and material handling side of the business and has proven to be a natural extension of its engineering capabilities.
Today, Gibson’s has two manufacturing centres and boasts an active management team controlling sales, product design and production.
