Work starts on job-creating Cheshire facility

Work has started on the construction of a GBP22m Tiger Trailers factory which will create 120 jobs in Cheshire. The business is outgrowing its current production facility and has therefore decided to double production output to about 3,000 trailers and truck bodies a year. The company’s 180 existing staff, alongside local MP Antoinette Sandbach, were on hand for the breaking ground ceremony off Road One on the Winsford Industrial Estate.

Tiger Trailers will have an immediate requirement for 40 new starters ahead of the factory beginning the production transfer at the end of the year, including 20 apprentices. Joint managing director John Cartwright said: “Today marks a new chapter in the history of Tiger. We’ve been planning this factory for almost two years, designing it from the ground up to be the most modern facility of its kind in the industry, and we’ve put our people at the forefront of those plans.

“The new factory will be a fantastic place to work, with every member of the team excited to be a part of what we’re building – we can’t wait to realise its full potential.”

Construction company Bowmer & Kirkland is leading the estimated 27-week build and fitting-out phase of the 168,000 sq ft site.

Tiger Trailers’ initial GBP22m investment is privately financed equally by shareholders and bank support.
