They say that necessity is the mother of invention – and this is certainly true of the birth of SCH (Supplies) Ltd.
Back in 1986, Managing Director Andrew Rodwell became frustrated at the lack of suitable lawn care attachments to fit to his garden tractor. Not being one to back away from a challenge, Andrew set about designing and manufacturing the attachments he wanted and started selling them to friends who had encountered the same problem.
SCH Supplies Limited now has over quarter of a century's experience in the manufacture of quality grounds care machinery and is proud of the fact that 90 per cent of its products are British built. SCH products are robustly made and, in most cases, very simple to use. The company can supply almost everything you could possibly want to tow behind your estate or garden tractor, including a range of lawn care maintenance machines, waterers, sprayers and trailers, as well as specialist equestrian and sports surface machines.
Based in Ipswich, Suffolk, SCH celebrated its 25th anniversary of manufacturing estate and garden machinery in July 2011. Since its formation, the company has grown to 20 employees manufacturing over 150 different products, not to mention the 'one offs'. If required, SCH will work with a customer to build a bespoke garden machine to agreed specifications.
