Jim Wilmer Workshops

Jim Wilmer & Sons have a workshop premises at Dailly, South Ayrshire. This is the hub of our company where we manage and run our business. Within these buildings, we have the service department, parts department, accounts department and harvesting department.
  • The service department deals with machine breakdowns, Health & Safety and a site backup service to Jim Wilmer & his site foreman, Tam McCreadie & Gordon Mitchell. The service department is run by David Wilmer.


  • The parts department deals with all of the company’s purchasing, spare parts and machine consumables. In this department we have very large stocks of spare parts as well as impress stocks from our machine manufacturers. Our parts manager tries to source all parts as cheap as possible and manages all in-comings and out goings. The department is run by Gary Wilmer. 
  • The accounts department deals with all of the company’s administration, finances and assists with Health & Safety.  It also provides the management with update reports and statistics. This said department is run by our office manager, Gill Ross.
  • The harvesting department (Jim Wilmer’s’ office) is where Jim “pulls the company strings.”  He oversees David Wilmer, the workshop manager, and our site foreman Tam McCreadie & Gordon Mitchell as well as all other company affairs. Jim also deals with keeping work in front of our machines, pricing all of the incoming work and tenders. 


Workshop Services: - Our workshop provides a backup to our fleet of machines and undertakes the following services:
  • Machine Shop
In our machine shop, we machine most of our pins and bosses. We also screw cut of hydraulic rods and cylinders.
  • Welding & Fabrication Shop
Here we repair machine components such as delimbing knives, feed rollers & roller arms. We repair our forwarder grabs and fabricate our own fuel grab tanks and site safes. We also do our own steel work when converting diggers to harvesters.
  • Hydraulic Cylinder & Feed Motor Repairs
We also recondition our hydraulic cylinders, feed motors and saw motors. Once re-conditioned, every cylinder & motor is tested with our hydraulic press.
  • Machine Servicing & Repairs

This is covered by our 8 field service engineers. Most repairs get done on site, however if a major breakdown occurs, we have the option of uplifting our machine with our company low-loader and transporting it back to our workshops.  Here we have the benefit of our 8ton over-head crane and much better working conditions as it is would be done in our fully insulated, heated workshop. We also have a large selection of spare parts and materials in stock if required.
