Tiger Trailers, established in 2014 by founders possessing a rich heritage and experience in coachbuilding, is a leading articulated HGV semi-trailer and rigid truck bodywork manufacturer. Based in the UK and building for operators around the world, its customers include many household names from B&M, Continental, Dreams, Home Bargains and Hovis to Morrisons, Poundland, Tesco and Wren Kitchens. The company also manufactures fleet assets for many well-known haulage, logistics and road transport businesses such as British Gypsum, EV Cargo and Mulgrew.
The product range offered by Tiger spans curtainsiders, box vans, fixed and moving double deck trailers, and swap-body demounts, to temperature-controlled refrigerated solutions, flatbeds and other specialist trailers, plus rigid bodywork for home delivery, parcel courier, bakery and other urban customers. The manufacturer’s purpose-built factory and design office complex incorporates an indoor showroom, enabling the viewing of finished vehicles prior to collection or delivery.
The Tiger Rentals business unit provides various trailer types on short, medium, long term and flexible hire, while Tiger Finance arranges comprehensive contract hire and leasing packages including long warranties, and the recently introduced Tiger Parts division offers a convenient online trailer spares store backed by next day UK delivery, along with same-day collection from the factory.
Charity, road safety and enriching the lives of others are close to the heart of Tiger Trailers’ CSR team, with 2021 seeing the launch of the Tiger Safety Team during Road Safety Week from prominent charity, Brake, which the firm has a 3-year donation arrangement with. Tiger Safety Team visits schools in Cheshire free of charge, to teach children about the dangers of large vehicles. Tiger Trailers is also a supporter and member of Cheshire Community Foundation and raises funds and awareness for a number of local charities under CCF’s umbrella.
The company is keen to promote manufacturing and engineering careers to young people and women in particular through its apprenticeship scheme, and supports Veterans into Logistics, a not-for-profit that trains ex-services personnel to attain class 1 licences and find fulfilling futures in truck driving.
Employee engagement and wellbeing are also a focus at Tiger Trailers, where the internal communications team develops a continuous range of employee benefits and activities. The company is proactive in relation to CSR and ESG, too, having installed a range of electric vehicle chargers, implemented various efficiency technologies throughout its factory, and plans to install solar panels.
From being the first UK manufacturer to design and offer a moving deck double deck trailer with a 52-pallet capacity, followed by continuous engineering achievements such as the development of its Lightweight Clearspan Curtainsider Trailer and Captive Rave load restraint system, innovation is a core characteristic of Tiger Trailers’ culture.
