Först is a brand driven by energy and passion for what we do and the industry we operate in.

We are a family, we are a winning team, a brand that attracts talent and like-minded individuals who want to be part of the Först journey.

That means we produce more than arborist woodchippers, we deliver customer experience and business partnerships which enable our customers to be more efficient in running their businesses.

Först is a global brand headquartered in Andover Hampshire, UK and with locations across the UK and Germany.

We sell direct to customers in many parts of England and Wales but for areas located far from our HQ, for example in the North of England, Scotland and Ireland we sell through our dealer partners.  We operate a dealer network in the rest of the world.

Först was born in a gloomy and drafty outbuilding in an old farm yard in 2012. It was born out of necessity to produce a premium quality yet sensibly priced woodchipper with a backup service second to none, the rest is history!
