This was the start of a new business for Coleman Engineering and from this company Trials Equipment was later formed.
In 1989 Sampo, having heard about the conversions, approached Coleman Engineering to offer them the franchise for their combines in the UK. This was agreed and Wintersteiger was added in 1991 to give nearly a full range of trials machines. There was however one piece missing and in 1997 Haldrup was added to the list of suppliers which gave Coleman Engineering the Forage Plot Harvester.
In the late 1990's, Wintersteiger bought the German company Hege and chose Coleman Engineering as their sole importer.
In 2001 Trials Equipment was formed from Coleman Engineering to concentrate on the trials machinery and design business and keeping the existing, experienced staff the company has continued to grow.
September 2004 saw the company move to its current site at Wethersfield, Braintree, where the expansion continues. The main building has had the spare parts storage area increased again, to store the ever increasing amount of spare parts we hold. In February 2009 we are doubling the size of our workshop and concreting the yard. This will enable us to operate more efficiently and improve the services offered to our customer base.
