The Sunshine Harvester Works manufactured many types of agricultural machinery and farming tools. Factory employees produced hundreds of different parts for Sunshine products, as well as spare parts and many of the tools and machines used in the factory itself.

To make the manufacturing process more efficient, the Sunshine works was divided into many departments, or ‘shops’. Each relied on workers with specific skills, and specialised materials and equipment.
