Supershear,  Dominates World Shearing Records

World's Best tallies,  World's Best Shearers,  World's Best Gear


With the backing of Wahl Clipper Corporation, Lister Shearing Equipment Ltd has announced that it has acquired the Supershear brand and assets.
Supershear ceased trading last year due to challenging economic factors and a strategic change in direction from its parent company, Tru-Test Group
Alun Williams, the Managing Director of Lister Shearing Equipment Ltd said:
“Originally known as Chicago Flexible Drives, Cooper-Stewart, then Sunbeam, the Supershear brand name has enjoyed a loyal following for many years and has managed to achieve an iconic status within the wool and shearing industries around the world. With over a century of association with the rural community, it would have been a significant loss to see this well respected name disappear.”

Mr Williams went on to say:
“Our commercial intentions for the future of Supershear and its product portfolio are very clear. Supershear has a strong global foundation in the shearing and rural markets and our intention is to build on this reputation by continuing to manufacture products using the original Supershear specifications, designs and processes. Wahl Clipper Corporation has made significant investments to ensure that all the original Supershear machinery and tooling will be relocated to the UK, further demonstrating our commitment and dedication to the future of this celebrated brand.”
