David John 

Back around the time when punk rock was on its way out and Margaret Thatcher was on her way in, a lot of digging on UK building sites was still done by hand, excavators were quite expensive and too big to fit through a standard doorway.

David John who ran a family engineering firm in Wales recognised the potential and reckoned that if you could make a really small and very portable digger at the right price, small builders would que up to buy them.

John pictured at the front had previously worked as a designer with plant manufacturers Steelfab and Hymac. John moved on and designed a machine that was both very compact and mounted on wheels, which was not only cheap but also allowed the machine to be towed behind a pick up or even a family car without the need for a trailer.

In 1981 together with his three brothers John launched a business which he called Power Fab to make and distribute these machines.

And John was right the concept took off not just in the UK but around the world. Power Fab went on to make a range of machines including the tracked mini excavators you see today and sold machines to diverse markets from banana plantations to nuclear power plants, the firm grew and in its heyday employed 50 people.
