About Us


Nicholson Machinery is based in Southery, Norfolk, in the heart of the UK’s onion, beet, potato and bulb growing areas.

Nicholson Machinery is a family run business, with a proud heritage dating back 50 years. Working closely with farmers, horticulturalists and pack house operators, Nicholson translates the needs of its customers into the design and manufacture of a full range of onion farming and processing equipment. Nicholson continues to develop innovative farming equipment alongside industry progress, creating new solutions to existing problems.

Our product portfolio includes a range of onion equipment, hemp equipment, soil sterilisers, paddock cleaners, mint harvesters and tea harvesters. Nicholson designs and installs whole or part grading and handling lines. In addition, Nicholson boasts an active purchase, refurbishment and resale handling equipment division.

A close working relationship with every customer calls for a highly responsive service and parts department, which provides support whenever and wherever it is needed. This same support mechanism operates through Nicholson’s trading partners throughout the world, who are continually being added as the company’s products meet expanding market demands.
