In Issue49 by FIEALeave a Comment

AE Gibson and Sons sadly announced that their driving force and former owner John Gibson passed away on the 6th June 2022. AE Gibson and Sons is located at Kendall, on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, which was once the heart of Australia’s native forest industry.

Having begun operations in the late 19th century, John and his team built up the family owned and operated business to be one of the most experienced sawmilling equipment suppliers in Australia. As a leading sawmill equipment supplier, they have also supplied sawmill machinery as well as complete sawmills to Fiji, PNG and New Zealand.

In a statement from the company, they said John’s passion, tenacity and leadership will be missed. We as the 4th and 5th generation of Gibson Management will continue walking in John’s footsteps and forging the company’s future in his honour.

AE Gibson and Sons will be closed for business on the 17th June 2022. All family, friends, staff, past and present are invited to John’s memorial service at Camden Haven Church, Mission Terrace, Lakewood at 10.30am Friday 17th June 2022.
