Company History

The Gough company was originally established in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire in 1940. It supplied local steel, coal and other vital industries with a comprehensive range of basic material handling equipment.

During the ensuing seventy years, the company have developed a wide portfolio of specialist material handling equipment and machinery. This was done by addressing any production and manufacturing problems encountered, as a wide range of industries had invested and developed in their production processes.

The company's engineers discovered various repetitive solutions, and to assist with these they developed its comprehensive range of Bucket Elevators and specialist conveying methods. The company grew to employ over two-hundred people and turned over £10,000,000 turnover per annum in the nineties, at the same time as investing in facilities in the USA and Germany.

A combination of succession issues for this private company and adverse trading conditions led to the breakup of the original group into separate autonomous companies in Germany, the UK and the US.

The Gough UK Company was purchased by its current shareholders in 2002.
Since 2002, the company has relocated twice, reorganised and redeveloped its engineering and manufacturing base which is now equipped to take on the challenges of the twenty-first century.

The new company has engineered, developed and sold over £30,000,000 of equipment and services since 2002. This more recent history combined with its long-standing presence in Europe and around the world has lead to its leading name in the marketplace.

Developments in computer assisted design and modern CNC machining and laser profiling manufacturing techniques have fundamentally altered the methods by which we execute contracts, and we look forward to continuing to improve and enhance the services we offer to our customers.

As we progress towards 2020, we will continue to build on our efficiency and ability to deliver bespoke material handling solutions to the huge range of industries and clients that we serve around the world.
