Tiger Trailers has delivered 16 new tri-axle curtainsiders to Somerset based haulier, Massey Wilcox, meaning that nearly half of the company’s trailer fleet is built by the Winsford manufacturer. Having successfully delivered its first order, Tiger has now placed 45 tandem and tri-axle curtainsiders into service with the company.
“When Tiger entered the manufacturing scene we were really keen to work with them, having known the directors and staff for many years,” said Robert Wilcox, Managing Director at Massey Wilcox. “Our relationship has since gone from strength to strength, and the rapport we’ve built means we can now simply hand over the specs for what we want, knowing that Tiger will deliver a reliable trailer that’s built to last, every time.”
The new tri-axle curtainsiders are built with galvanised chassis and floor bearers, providing significant corrosion resistance to help lengthen operational life. They also feature a fully-flush floor, EN 12642-DL compliant curtains with security mesh, lightweight curtain poles and a GRP aerodynamic front pale, which combined offer a versatile trailer ideally suited to the variety of loads Massey Wilcox transports.
“The fact that almost half of our curtainsider fleet is now made up of Tiger Trailers speaks volumes in terms of the quality product they provide,” Wilcox continued. “What sets them apart from the competition is the fact we can talk to the senior management team, at any time – it is this kind of reassurance that lets us know we’ve got the best people on the case when it comes to our trailer fleet.”
Tiger Trailers enjoys putting its personal touch and one of the latest trailers includes Joloda’s efficient skate and track loading system that elevates the load, allowing it to be quickly and easily rolled in or out of the trailer.
The new curtainsiders feature a range of liveries specific to Massey Wilcox customers, plus nine sport the company’s own branding. The new additions join a 100-strong curtainsider fleet which is used intensively across the UK and Europe, with each trailer clocking up close to 60,000 kilometres a year.
