Running a successful family business for more than 80 years amidst events such as the Wall Street Crash and the World War II was no easy feat, but second-hand machinery dealer FA Maker is one fine example.

The business is now run by the fourth generation of the Betts family since F.L Betts, who established the company with his business partner, FA Maker.

From starting out as a business specialising in the manufacture, selling and repairing of mining and agriculture machinery to its current business model of sourcing, selling and servicing second-hand plant equipment, the business has certainly come a long way.

The products FA Maker currently carry ranges from industrial sized dust collectors to confectionary makers; and from milk processing plants to pumps.

TradePlantEquipment visited their site in Laverton North to chat to the business' stakeholders, Mitchell Betts and his father Leigh Betts to find out what the business is really about.
