is a brand that has been manufacturing Macadamia Handling Equipment since 1993. It was incorporated by macadamia producer, David Barnsley, who was not satisfied with the sub standard equipment, such as dehuskers, that were available.

As a macadamia producer, David has been able to work hands on with the equipment and design new and better methods to ease the burden of handling.

When you use the macquip range, you know it has been thoroughly field tested and your ensured complete satisfaction backed up by our 12 month macquip All Inclusive Warranty.
