Gillard celebrate fifty years of extrusion cutting!

Our company was founded in 1968 as Gillard & Co., so 2018 is our 50th Anniversary year!

Right from the start the company specialised in extrusion downstream equipment.

Guillotine cutters & haul-offs were the core of the 1968 range. One of our earliest leaflets is shown to the right.

The first rotary cutters followed soon after.

The first company base was in Maidenhead (England) until a fire destroyed the factory in 1976. We then moved to High Wycombe.

In 1990 we relocated again to our current home in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.
