AE Gibson & Sons has been enhancing Australia’s industrial manufacturing profile for over 125 years. A fifth generation, family-owned business based in Kendall NSW, their focus lies in the design and manufacturing of special purpose machinery used for materials handling and processing of renewables such as timber. 

Operating out of two large-scale manufacturing centres, AE Gibson & Sons is also dedicated to helping their customers process renewable resources, and effectively manage biomass and waste materials. Their product is of world-class standard, incorporating the latest technologies in industrial automation and mechatronics.

Their competitive approach has strong relationships and rigorous performance standards at its core. This comes from lifetimes of experience as Australia’s oldest sawmilling equipment manufacturer in the country.

“We are committed to achieving client satisfaction through research, development and continual upgrading and improvement of our machine designs”, says Troy Krogh, Managing Director. “We aim to deliver products of the highest possible quality to our clients.”

The business is one of the largest employers in the Kendall region and has a strong focus on nurturing future generations of engineers through apprenticeship and graduate programs. The staff bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table from a broad spectrum of industry backgrounds. 

General Manager, Curtis Gibson, explains that maintaining their reputable position in the market relies on sourcing durable, consistently well-made parts for their machinery. With design and engineering flexibility at the forefront of their identity, AE Gibson & Sons values the reliability of products sourced through Motion Australia.

“So much of our machinery is customised for each client and what we do can be very broad. We need to trust that the quality of the parts can play a role in delivering exceptional solutions. Reliability is key here – often our machinery has a service license of 25 years or more, so all the components must be made to last. We know through experience that we can get that assurance from Motion Australia.”

AE Gibson & Sons has always cared about their staff, with teamwork and community values at the forefront of everything they do. Several employees have been within the company for over 30 years – a testament to the team’s integrity and actioned values.

“We innovate by designing and building world class engineered machinery and automation systems,” says Curtis. “We boast an experienced management team to service sales, product design, production and after-sales support.”
