Rowe Hillmaster was an English company based in Cornwall.  Thanks to Chris Campbell from Skills for Logistics we have a Rowe Hillmaster competition to start 2012 with.

The firm of M. G. Rowe (Motors) Ltd., made an entry into the PSV chassis market in 1953, when the managing director, Mr. Maurice Rowe, who had visited the 1952 Earls Court Commercial Motor Show and taken an instant liking to the new Meadows 4DC engine, had one delivered and immediately set to work designing a chassis around it.

Rowe Hillmaster’s history and vehicles have been beautifully documented in ‘The Cornish Commercial Vehicle’ by Peter Tutthill.
