Our Story

The Duncan brand is an important part of New Zealand's agricultural history, with our roots tracing all the way back to 1874.

Beginning with P & D Duncan Ltd in Christchurch nearly 150 years ago, two brothers Peter and David built a large and successful business which would contribute to the development of New Zealand agriculture for more than a century.

Changing ownership to Clough Agriculture in the mid 1980's, Duncan products continued from strength to strength, dominating the direct drilling and pasture renovation landscape in New Zealand and Australia.

Most recently in 2018, Duncan became part of the Giltrap Engineering group of companies - another name synonymous with agriculture for more than 60 years.


Quality and craftsmanship

We're obsessed about details. Every machine is meticulously designed, fabricated and assembled at our factory by our team who take immense pride in their work.

We understand how demanding the agricultural environment is, and we work hard to make sure that you can own a machine that not only looks good, but is precise and works every time you need it.

Forged on a reputation of strength, accuracy and reliability for a century and a half, we continue to design and manufacture tough, indispensable farm machinery which is now sold worldwide, and remains proudly made in New Zealand.
