Our History

The business was purchased in 1989 as an existing lawnmower sales and service outlet, housed in a very old style petrol station in the town of Congleton. 

It was originally purchased as a property development opportunity, but it was decided to retain the existing business whilst extending the whole of the shop front out, consisting of two floors.

Stuart Meek, owner and director, worked in the business Saturday, Sunday and evenings only, whilst holding a full time position in an investment company, whilst his wife Lyn managed the accounts. 

Being goal orientated and enthusiastic, the challenge grew and they went on to increase the range of manufacturers' products that they could support, always looking for companies that were proactive in their approach. 

The business soon became known as an Aladdin’s cave, as being so small, every inch of wall and floor space was utilised for marketing purposes.

It wasn’t long before they opened another shop 8 miles away, so that an even wider choice of products could be provided to local residents.

In 2000, Stuart’s son, Andrew, joined from university to bring a new dimension and fresh ideas to a growing business.  Additional space was soon required and it was agreed that they would rent 9000 sq ft of ex -car showroom space on a main road site, with a ten year lease. 

This was a huge challenge, but one that they rose to, acquiring even more stock and more variety, ultimately adding Polaris quads to their range. 

With the growth in internet sites, Andrew quickly established two popular websites, one solely for quad bikes and accessories (www.polarisquad.co.uk) and the other to encompass all garden machinery (www.mowersplus.co.uk). 

Ten years on, they moved again to a 14000 sq ft industrial unit, which at the time was in need of complete renovation.  They re-located in September 2013, and the additional space enabled an increasing product range to satisfy their ever expanding customer base.

Again, Andrew came to the fore and introduced a bespoke management system, so that statistics, important to day to day running of the business, could be acquired at the press of a button. 

Now, with a team of very enthusiastic, focused and ambitious personnel and 30 years on, they are still hooked on the industry, seeing huge potential and opportunities for advancement, whilst taking on board the current growing trend of battery and robotic machines.
