Ewart Engineering was established in 1968 by Ian and Jim Ewart. Both from engineering backgrounds (working in the Merchant Navy and working as an electric engineer respectively), the brothers formed the business to initially provide shut-down maintenance work for companies.


The company operated from a blacksmith shop in Eastriggs, providing local companies with light engineering services. Quickly outgrowing their premises, Ewart Engineering expanded to its current base in Gretna in the mid 1970s, building their own factories to meet growing nationwide demand for their services.

A breakthrough came in 1978 when Ewart Engineering won the contract to supply Leyland Bus at Lilly hall. When Volvo acquired Leyland Bus in 1988, Ewart Engineering was propelled into the global market, winning contracts throughout the following decades with global OEM companies.

To this day, Ewart Engineering remains a family-run business, alongside a highly skilled and loyal workforce, consisting of over 80 staff, supplying a global market from our base in Gretna in the United Kingdom.
