Based in Haverhill, Suffolk, Terra-Vac was originally an engineering company. Being surrounded by the many studs in and around Newmarket, it was a natural fit to start engineering suction cleaning machines to clean out stables and paddocks.

This is an essential job that has to be done regularly to protect the health of horses. This practice would previously have been done manually.

The machines were an immediate success and, since1982, over 5000 machines have been produced and sold in the UK and around the world.

Terra-Vac now have a range of machines to suit all sizes of equestrian establishments and in recent years have modified them to meet the needs of other markets like ground maintenance and local authorities.

2007 was an important year, marking 25 years of the production of Terra-Vacs.
