About us

Even in the 1940s, our founder Peter Murray, founder of Murray Implement Company, saw the potential.

Coming from an agricultural background, he began his working life as a dairy hand. He built up his agricultural knowledge, progressing to the workshop, as a diesel mechanic, and then on to tractor and implement sales.

Over the next 24 years Peter worked for companies including P & D Duncan and International Harvester Company before taking the opportunity to go out on his own. In 1975, the company began in the backyard of Peter’s Innes Road home; specialising in selling and servicing farm equipment.

The business expanded rapidly and soon moved to Mill Road Ohoka, which still stands today. From here it served the North Canterbury, Central Canterbury and West Coast regions, selling Duncan Drills, Ploughs, Cultivators and discs also UFO and Taarup Mowers, along with a wide range of used equipment. With Peter’s sons, Anthony, and Grant Murray employed, the business expanded until it was serving the greater South Island. And, the North Island too.

The third Murray generation is now actively involved in the company and helps both innovate and maintain its heritage and commitment to clients.

Now, FarmChief is one of New Zealand’s leaders in quality agriculture implements, service and advice. Our tagline; Implements for the Best Farmers in the World, reflects our commitment to helping dedicated Kiwis feed people here, and around the globe.
