McGibbon provided much of the financial backing for the management buyout of Harbilt Electric Trucks from its parent companies Crosby Valves and Edward Le Pas in 1975. The company were based in Market Harborough, and briefly traded as McGibbon until the registration of the new limited company was completed.[2]
