A.G. PROWSE LTD, founded and run by Allen Prowse.
Allen was trained at Duchy College receiving a City & Guild qualification as an agricultural mechanic, whilst working as an apprentice to Mr Steven Richards.
Initially Allen worked as a mechanic with Massey Ferguson Tractors.
“After serving an apprenticeship, I moved to Truro Tractors working for Mr Martin Stephens. Here I developed my servicing skills working with Ford Tractors & New Holland Balers & Combine Harvesters. I left Truro Tractors in 1999 with a focus on developing my own business on the family farm.
In 1999, I took over my Grandads farm, at Lower Tolcarne. I focused on my new business building a workshop, stores & starting mobile repairs.
After many years and much experience I continue to pride myself on mastering quality engineering skills in the workshop.”
In 2004 Allen was joined by Anthea, who is the company secretary at the same time A G Prowse became a Limited Company.
Since 2004, the company has steadily grown & we now employ three members of staff.
