Tiger Trailers has appointed Richard Else as Manufacturing Director at the company’s factory and headquarters in Winsford, Cheshire. With an impressive career track record which includes 28 years with Jaguar Land Rover and, more recently, with McLaren Automotive, the appointment is a strategic move to coincide with the company’s imminent relocation to a new £22 million manufacturing facility on the Winsford Industrial Estate.

The appointment is being seen, the company says, as the catalyst to take the business to the next level.

“We’re genuinely thrilled that Tiger Trailers has been able to attract an exceptional industry professional of the calibre of Richard Else,” said John Cartwright, Joint Managing Director, “he has an extremely impressive CV, and he demonstrates the prerequisite drive and dynamism to take the business to the next level. We’re incredibly excited by the potential of our young business, and especially now that Richard is at the helm of our manufacturing activities.”

Richard Else, 50, boasts huge experience garnered at two of the luxury car sector’s leading marques. Joining Jaguar Land Rover as a graduate trainee, his career progression sits upon a solid engineering platform and culminating with manufacturing directorship roles at the company’s Castle Bromwich and Halewood production plants. Latterly, a corresponding role with performance car maker, McLaren, further underlines Richard Else’s credentials as a manufacturing specialist of the highest standing.

“The opportunity to join a such a young, dynamic, family-run business on its exciting journey was simply too good to miss,” said Richard Else, “and, with our genuinely state-of-the-art manufacturing facility almost complete, the prospects for Tiger Trailers fills everyone within the company with real excitement and passion.”

“I was equally drawn,” he said, “by the exceptional individuals that exist here at Tiger Trailers. My first remit is to manage the transition to our new manufacturing facility, but, I’m already fully focused on engaging the power of the people to deliver a better, even more efficient production process to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. I want to help position the business as an internationally recognised example of UK manufacturing at its very best,” he added.
