50 Years of Engineering Excellence for Gibbons Engineering Group Gibbons Engineering Group has cause for celebration this year, with 2019 marking their 50th anniversary.


alf a century ago, friends Wilfred Gibbons and Roy Templeman, with the help of Wilfred’s son Martin, formed T.G. Consultancy – a company specialising in electric motor rewinds and repairs. When a company that was downsizing made Wilfred and Roy redundant along with several other people and the entire rewinds department, they saw an opportunity. Setting up a rewinds business of their own, Wilfred and Roy began trading out of ‘a little shed’ on Woodrolfe Road. By listening to customers and responding to demand, the company started expanding – sourcing new machinery and adding pumps, panel building and transmission systems to the business’s offering over the next two decades. Fast-forward 50 years and the company is now known as Gibbon Engineering Group, with Agricultural and Ultraviolet Solutions being the latest of no less than 11

thriving divisions. The company delivers complex projects across the globe, with the expertise and personnel to deliver huge turnkey projects for high-profile clients. That being said, the company hasn’t forgotten its roots, and their rewinds department is still going strong. The company has stayed in the family, with Martin Gibbons serving as Chairman, and his son Matthew representing the third generation of Gibbons as Managing Director. Matthew says: “50 years is a fantastic achievement for Gibbons. We are particularly proud of the contribution we have made to the local community over the years, employing dozens of people from the surrounding area. This milestone reflects the hard work of the entire team.” Gibbons Engineering Group are excited to share their achievement with their local community in Essex and will therefore be marking the occasion with a networking event for local businesses. Gibbons will also

be holding an exciting competition for local primary and secondary schools. As a partner of the Year of Engineering last year, the company are particularly keen to share their achievement with young people, hoping to inspire them to consider the varied opportunities a career in engineering can offer. Gibbons will also be marking the occasion on their social media channels, and you’ll be able to find special interviews on their YouTube channel, along with a 50 most memorable moments countdown on their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn pages.
