Farfan & Mendes first began business in Guyana in 1960, as a subsidiary of a well-known Trinidadian Company, F.T. Farfan and Sons Limited. The company was officially incorporated in July 1967, as Farfan & Mendes Limited.
In 1967, Farfan and Mendes Limited helped to introduce and pioneer the use of chain saws in Guyana, through demonstrations and a training programme sponsored by the UNDP. From that time onward, the name Farfan and Mendes has become synonymous with the timber industry in Guyana.
Through the recession of the late 1970's and 80's, they continued to provide the best service possible to their customers, despite the unfavourable economic conditions prevailing at the time.
During the 1980's, they reintroduced the STIHL range of chain saws, which went on to acquire the major share of the chain saw market.
In the 1990's, Farfan and Mendes evolved into a reliable supplier of industrial equipment, including machinery for the timber industry, the wood working industry and the agricultural industry, as well as chemical fogging equipment, power tools, tyres for most types of vehicles, pulling and lifting systems, among others.
Advancing into the 21st Century, they are continuing to expand their range of products and services to anticipate and satisfy the needs of their customers, and their renovated Urquhart Street office is fully equipped to handle their increasing customer base with efficient point of sale and after sales service.
With the addition of their sister company Mines Services Limited at their spacious Providence location, they are now able to offer industrial tyre repair and truck wheel alignment, and to manufacture wire rope slings and hydraulic and industrial hose to the specifications of the individual customer.
In all aspects of business, the Company offers a high standard of service, before, during and after any sale. To maintain an efficient after sales service, large stocks of spare parts are always available, and our efficient, skilled and committed Service Department is equipped with all the necessary tools to assist their customers without undue delay.
As a sign of the Company's commitment to service, they offer both in house and field training for machine operators, either by their own, or overseas technical expertise. For their customers in outlying areas, they offer service trips to these areas if accessible.
Consequent upon our efforts, as our history and client base show, we have been able to maintain our position and reputation, and look forward to continuing to serve you, our customers, for many years to come.
