The original Frank Gaukroger came to Tingha, near Inverell, in 1910 as a Boiler Inspector and Mining Engineer. He was sent there to oversee the building of the first tin dredges in the Tingha area which was experiencing a mining boom and had a population of 10,000 people.
Frank Gaukroger opened his engineering workshop and started servicing mining equipment as well as motor vehicles. As time went on he started selling new motor vehicles sourced from importers in Sydney.
