Trailer and commercial vehicle body manufacturer, Tiger Trailers, has moved into its new, £22 million manufacturing facility in Winsford, Cheshire. The relocation on the Winsford Industrial Estate coincides with the company’s rapid growth, and will allow production capacity to double in the next 12-months as well as create 200 new jobs.

The bespoke production plant and office complex stretches over a 20-acre site comprising 168,000 square feet of state-of-the-art chassis fabrication, body assembly, paint and final finish facilities. The offices include a 3D Engineering Suite, specialist training facility and full height showroom – unique among UK trailer manufacturers. The design and construction of the new facility, which incorporates a wide range of energy-efficient systems, was completed in just 12-months.

The last 12-months have been a whirlwind of anticipation. Tiger Trailers is building a strong brand in the industry 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.
