William Gardiner & Co operated in Mataura from 1862 to 1910. It was established by William Gardiner and continued by three of his sons (William, Alex and Edward). The business specialised in making agricultural equipment. Its ploughs were widely used and favoured at ploughing matches. Besides ploughs it also produced: combined drills, ridgers, drays, wagons, rollers and harrows. All its products were marked 'W.Gardiner'. After the business closed, Bill Gardiner (Junior) worked for 25 years as a blacksmith at the Mataura Paper Mill.
