In 1867, Andrew Pollock opened the Implement Works at Cowgatehead in Mauchline, and rapidly gained reputation for manufacturing high quality innovative implements. His sudden death in 1904 was a huge blow to the Company with neither of Andrew's sons, Andrew and William, old enough to take over the company. The company management were good enough to continue the business on behalf of the family, until Andrew and William were trained to run the company.
In 1916, a new factory was built in Station Road, Mauchline under the name of A&W Pollock with William Pollock's son then joining the business in the 1960's making him the last Pollock Family Engineer to own the company, with a further name change to John Pollock (Mauchline)ltd in 1980.
John Pollock brought his own success to the company, selling over 1000 of his well know Byre Cleaning Systems in Japan. In 1967 Jim McGhee joined A&W Pollock as an apprentice agricultural engineer, progressing to the drawing office and then as Salesman, leaving Jim as the perfect candidate to take over the company, renamed again as Pollock Farm Equipment in 1998, upon John Pollock's retirement.
