Tiger Trailers is built upon a strong family history of manufacturing trailers and rigid bodies for the commercial vehicle sector. Joint Managing Directors, John and Steven Cartwright, each bring more than 35 years of experience in the industry, with the Cartwright family’s manufacturing heritage playing a major role in the culture and approach they have instilled in Tiger Trailers today.
Alan Cartwright, the much-loved father of John and Steven, began building timber-framed vehicle bodies in 1952, alongside his father, Stanley Cartwright, under the name S. Cartwright & Sons. Alan grew the business throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s . It soon became well known for designing and building quality bodywork and was well respected in the industry. John and Steven worked alongside their father, joining the business in 1983 and 1984 respectively, and for 30 years continued to help build the company into a major UK manufacturer. Alan sadly passed away in 2011. In 2014 John and Steven left the business and founded Tiger Trailers, with a vision to create the most advanced trailer and bodywork manufacturing facility in the UK.
