In November 2000 Mark set out to work on his own equipping a small van with some engineering tools offering an on the farm repair and maintenance service and as the work increased the vans got bigger and bigger. In the years 2002 to 2003 Mark operated by means of a laptop in the van and a mobile phone.
In 2002 Deutz-Fahr appointed Mark their repair service agent in the area and it soon became evident he needed a more permanent base than a van for the business, so in 2003 he moved into premises in Elgin.
Mark Garrick Ltd was formed in 2003 and also in 2003 were awarded the Deutz-Fahr dealer agency in Moray and it soon became clear that it was now essential to begin to employ full-time and permanent staff to work alongside Mark and his partner Jackie, so the first full-time qualified agricultural engineer was employed.
In 2004 as new dealerships and agencies began to come on board the volume of work increased and the first time-serving apprentice was taken on as well as part-time secretarial help.
Since 2003 and up until 2016 Mark Garrick Ltd has been appointed main dealers for many including Pottinger, Amazone, Redrock, Spearhead Machinery, Portaquip and Joskin to name but a few and these new appointments led to more full-time engineers, apprentices and secretarial staff being employed.
It soon became clear that the company needed larger premises with room to expand and in 2008 the ideal place was found - a site only a few miles south of Elgin and after getting all the necessary planning permission the foundations for new premises at Brookfield House, Birnie, Elgin, IV30 8SW were put down in 2010.
The final move to Brookfield House took place at Christmas 2014 when everything was finally moved from Elgin.
The decision was made in 2016 to go forward with Case IH and Mark Garrick Ltd were appointed Case IH main dealers supplying all Case IH tractors and machinery, servicing and repairs and supplying parts. With this also came the decision to employ a full-time Salesman and Ivan Nicol joined the company in 2017 followed by Ross Beaton covering the North territory in 2019.
Also in 2017 Mark Garrick Ltd were appointed main dealers for Manitou New Ag and Gehl products.
