Farfan & Mendes
Farfan & Mendes

Farfan and Mendes first began business in Guyana in 1960, as a subsidiary of a Trinidadian company, F.T. Farfan and Sons Ltd., servicing the sawmilling industry. The Mendes family joined forces with FT Farfan and incorporated as Farfan and Mendes Ltd in July 1967. In 1967, Farfan and Mendes Limited helped to introduce and pioneer the use of chain saws in Guyana through a UNDP training programme. In the 1980s, we reintroduced the STIHL range of chain saws, which went on to acquire the major share of the chain saw market. Over the years the company evolved into a reliable supplier of industrial equipment, including machinery for the timber, wood-working and the agricultural industries, as well as chemical fogging equipment and power tools. In 2007, Farfan & Mendes became a wholly owned Guyanese company through the acquisition of full shares by the Mendes family.
