Vin Rowe Pty Ltd was established in Warragul, 100 kilometres east of Melbourne in 1961.
At this time Warragul was the centre of the most intensive dairying area of Australia. The business was established as a New Holland Hay Machinery/David Brown tractor farm machinery dealer. The business grew over the years and was probably one of the largest machinery dealerships in the country in the late 60s and early 70s. In the mid 70s with the discontinuance of milk contracts and a general down turn in dairy farming it became obvious that we needed to diversify.
As Melbournes population increased many vegetable growers moved from the outskirts of the city to the Warragul area.
Whilst still heavily involved with the dairy farming industry we sought out involvements with suppliers of equipment compatible with the vegetable growers. We became Australian importer for the Norwegian company Underhaug (Manufacturer of Potato Machinery) and distributor for ASA Lift, the Danish carrot machine manufacturer.
Our importing/distribution business continued to grow and we found ourselves servicing customers throughout Australia and it became increasingly difficult to adequately service the market ourselves which necessitated a setting up of a specialist dealer network within Australia.
In the middle 80s we were approached by the French company Kuhn SA who had unsuccessfully over the years been involved with several importers. They put a proposition to us that we form a joint venture to warehouse and distribute their range of machinery and distribute parts to Australia in our own right. The positive part of this arrangement was our business grew considerably with the development of a dealer network and a marked increase in sales volume.
