Tiger Trailers moves to brand £22 million facilityCheshire-based Tiger Trailers — a manufacturer of commercial-vehicle bodies and trailers — has moved into a new £22 million manufacturing facility on the Winsford Industrial Estate.

Coinciding with rapid business growth, this relocation gives the company scope to double its production capacity in the next year and create a substantial number of new jobs.

The bespoke production plant on a 20-acre site includes ‘state of the art’ chassis fabrication, body assembly, paint and final-finish facilities, while the office complex includes a 3-D engineering suite, a specialist training facility and a full-height showroom — said to be unique among UK trailer manufacturers.

The design and construction of the new facility, which incorporates a host of energy-efficient systems, was completed in just 12 months.

Joint managing director John Cartwright (www.tigertrailers.co.uk) said: “Tiger Trailers is building a strong brand, and our new home will allow us to take the business to the next level by developing an enhanced product portfolio and an even better customer experience. We’re especially pleased to be generating employment opportunities.”

Key appointments have also been made recently to maximise business growth. These include Nathan Owen as general manufacturing manager and new manufacturing director Richard Else — an automotive industry professional who has previously worked at Jaguar Land Rover and McLaren Automotive.
