Whether you are managing a small garden or an area the size of a golf course, we have the equipment and backup services for you.

F G Adamson & Son's history started with Fred Adamson who commenced business in 1945 on the site we still use today.  We are located just outside the village of Swanland in East Yorkshire, very close to the Humber Bridge.

We have specialised in garden machinery, engines and spare parts for over 50 years and during that time have become one of the most prominent suppliers in Yorkshire. We sell all manner of mowers and garden related machinery to homeowners and professional users such as local authorities, golf clubs and contractors.  We have a comprehensively stocked spare parts department and large service department allowing us to offer a backup service that is second to none.

Our purpose built modern premises cover approximately 25,000 sq ft and include a spacious well stocked showroom, a parts department which is stocked with close to 40,000 stock lines, an extensive workshop for our technicians and a large warehouse which ensures that most orders are met from stock and can be dispatched quickly.

Having been in business for so many years we have been able to refine our suppliers and feel that we hold the dealerships for the best machinery manufacturers in our industry. We stock a comprehensive range of products from Allett, Bosch (Lawn & Garden), Hayter (Homeowner products), Honda (Lawn & Garden and Energy), Husqvarna, John Deere (Groundscare), Mountfield, Stihl and Westwood plus a number of other good quality but less well known manufacturers. We only sell quality products that offer good value to our customers and for which we can be assured that we can provide the level of after sales customer support expected in today's market.

We also sell engines and genuine spare parts from brand leaders including Briggs & Stratton, Honda, Kawasaki, Kohler, Peerless, Robin/Subaru, Tecumseh and many more.

Through the trade side of our business we supply garden machinery, engines and spare parts to garden machinery dealers and other trade customers throughout the UK. Our competitive trade terms and reliable service has attracted a large number of trade customers over the years. Our trade customers range from one-person operations through to large multi-depot businesses, many of whom prefer to deal with us as a one-stop-shop rather than dealing direct with several different suppliers.

Fred Adamson passed away in 2007 but is succeeded in the business by his sons Mike and John. Mike started with the business straight from school in 1962 and John joined in 1984 after several years in accountancy. The next generation are now employed in the business with Gillian Jenkins, Michael Adamson Jnr and John Adamson Jnr all playing an active role.
