Tiger Trailers creates 50 new jobs at Winsford factory
Trailer and commercial vehicle body manufacturer, Tiger Trailers, is recruiting 50 new employees at its manufacturing facility in Winsford. The employment drive supports a surge in demand for trailers and HGVs due to the increase in home deliveries and online shopping.
Various jobs are on offer at the 168,000 sq ft site, which has state-of-the-art chassis fabrication, body assembly, paint and final finish facilities. It opened in April 2019 following a £22m investment and already employs 213 people.
Edward Booth, finance director at Tiger Trailers, said: “We are seeing record amounts of orders because consumer buying habits have shifted so drastically due to Covid-19. The jobs we’ve created will enable us to exceed this demand and at the same time, provide an economic boost for Winsford by providing locals with new opportunities on their doorstep.
“It’s a really exciting time to join the Tiger Trailers family because we’ve got huge growth plans which involve enhancing our CSR activities and transforming our internal communications. We’ve launched an employee appreciation wall to showcase everyone’s hard work, and partnered with non-profit organisations like Veterans into Logistics to help place ex-military personnel into truck driving roles.”
Tiger Trailers manufactures between 1,500 and 2,000 trailers per year and hopes to create even more jobs at its Winsford site in early 2022.
