Arvid Gimre established his first business in 1987 selling equipment for grass, lime spreading, farming equipment and related services. In 1989, Gimre began with livestock production, milk, and meat. Gimre worked with construction machinery, cultivation, and drainage ditches. In the early 90s Gimre began to import equipment mainly for his own business. He built a new 2000 m2 operational building.
