Tiger Trailers manufactures 100 trailers for Maritime Transport
Winsford-based Tiger Trailers has produced and delivered 100 new 13.6-metre curtainside trailers for Maritime Transport.
The new trailers have entered service throughout the UK and feature a clearspan pillarless roof design and specified components including two rear strap pouches, a specific load securing setup, TIR cord, toolbox, and SAF drum brake axles. The majority are fitted with Keruing hardwood floors, while 10 have phenolic non-slip plywood finishes.
Tiger Trailers is approaching its 10th year of business and has grown fast to become one of the UK’s leading articulated HGV trailer and rigid bodywork manufacturers, building a wide variety of trailers. Its customer portfolio includes household brands, major parcel operators and haulage firms.
Paul Heyhoe, fleet director at Maritime Transport, said: “We are pleased to have placed our first order with Tiger Trailers, who met our timescales and specification at a time where production schedules are being delayed across various industries. The new trailers are a welcome addition to our fleet and will bring greater efficiencies and flexibility to our distribution division, ensuring it is prepared for substantial growth we have seen in new contracts.”
Stephen Pollock, business development director at Tiger Trailers, added: “Here at Tiger we are extremely pleased to have welcomed Maritime Transport as a customer, following their decision to place this order for 100 curtainsiders with ourselves. It has been an absolute pleasure to have developed a close working relationship with Paul Heyhoe and his colleagues and we look forward to supporting them going forwards.”
