ERNEST DOE'S HISTORY WITHIN AGRICULTURE

Very much a family firm, the company can trace its history back to June 1898 when Ernest Doe took the lease on a blacksmiths shop at Ulting near Maldon Essex. Work in those days consisted mainly of shoeing horses and repairing agricultural implements.
In 1910, Ernest purchased the lease and built his house which still stands today. After the war the Ministry of Munitions sold off their tractors (mainly Fordson model F's) and Ernest persuaded his father to purchase a number of them and sell them to local farmers.
In the 1920's Ernest Doe became a Case agent and subsequently Foredson in the 30's, Alis Chambers, David Brown, Caterpillar, Cletrac, Oliver, Fergus, Ford and New Holland.
By the 1950's, there was an increasing demand for higher horsepower and 4 wheel drive. Local farmer George Pryor and Ernest Doe worked together and the Triple D was born (Doe Dual Drive). 289 were produced between 1958 and 1964 with exports to Germany, Russia, Nigeria, USA and Sweden.
