Our History

Founded by Tony Shepherd in 1976, A.G Shepherd (Machinery) Limited has always been committed to providing a professional service with the aim of obtaining 100% customer satisfaction. Our business encompasses ferrous and non-ferrous mill equipment, melt shop, seamless and welded tube, bar processing, extrusion, coil procesing, forging and wire equipment.

As a company that operates on a worldwide level, we pride ourselves on our reputation throughout the industry, and aim to be your only source for quality used machinery. Inventory is held in our main Sheffield Warehouse, with additional storage facilities utilized around the world.

We have established good relationships with customers over the years, and have received many recommendations.

In 2002 we acquired the business of Sir James Farmer Norton (UK) Limited, with the aim of supplying spare parts, drawings, manuals and technical assistance to their vast array of customers.


We hold a large inventory of quality used machinery. If we do not have the item you require, we will try our upmost to locate it through our worldwide contacts. Whether buying a small single item or a complete manufacturing facility we aim to provide a professional service to all our clients.
