History of Farid UK Limited

In 1992 Farid branded products entered the UK market through a joint venture between its founder and industry specialist Gordon Smith and Farid Industrie of Italy, trading as Farid Municipal Vehicles Limited. 

The business was established and located in Arundel, West Sussex and began to assemble, market and sell Farid equipments designed for refuse collection and recycling collection vehicles into UK and Ireland. The Arundel site is now a centre of excellence for after sales service of Farid Hillend Engineering products and service and refurbishment of customer vehicles.

With further organic growth and expansion, in 2001, the Farid European Group purchased outright Gordon Smith's remaining interest in the business for it to become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Farid European Group.

In August 2008, to recognise that the UK is now a division of one of the largest European manufacturers of waste management equipments, the company changed its name to Farid UK Limited.
