A totally fresh approach to design

Tiger Trailers is a design-led business, comprising a team that genuinely thrives on engineering challenges. Our ethos is to combine our extensive design and engineering knowledge with the latest manufacturing techniques.

Every order placed with Tiger Trailers is immediately assigned a project engineer for the entire build process, from design and manufacturing, through to final sign off.

Once we have agreed a brief, our powerful 3D SolidworksTM program is used to produce an accurate representation of the design. The customer is then invited to view the technical drawings at the factory prior to manufacture – ensuring that all aspects of the build meet any individual requirements before construction begins.

Alan Cartwright Foundation

In 2011, Alan Cartwright sadly passed away at the age of 73 – having become one of the most respected coach and commercial vehicle bodybuilders in the UK transport industry.

In recognition of Alan’s achievements – in particular the hard work and determination he showed when building the family business – Joint MDs, John and Steven, alongside their mother Joyce and sister Alison, set up The Alan Cartwright Foundation and The Alan Cartwright Apprenticeship Awards.

Each year, the latter recognises Tiger’s top-performing apprentices.

Powering up business

The start of 2018 saw Tiger Trailers join a host of globally recognised brands as a partner of the Northern Powerhouse – a scheme aimed at increasing the impact and contribution of the North of England to the UK economy.

We were the first trailer manufacturer and commercial vehicle bodybuilder to join the Northern Powerhouse and we actively work alongside the other partners to realise the full economic potential of The North.

The invitation for Tiger to join was based on our ambitious growth plans, our continued commitment to our celebrated apprenticeship scheme, and excellent graduate training.

  • “We support everything the Northern Powerhouse stands for, including strengthening the local economy through investment in skills, innovation, transport and culture. We are incredibly proud to be growing our business here in Cheshire.”

    John Cartwright, Joint Managing Director

  • “As a rapidly growing, innovative manufacturer supporting hundreds of jobs in the local economy, as well as providing new opportunities for apprentices and young people at the beginning of their careers, Tiger Trailers embodies the dynamism and ingenuity of the Northern Powerhouse.”

    Jake Berry, Northern Powerhouse Minister
