For over 60 years, we have concentrated our efforts on providing innovative and hard working truck and trailer bodies.

Transport Trailers built the country’s very first aluminium tipping body and matching three axle tipping trailer back in 1969. This innovation has spurred generations of operators, who were demanding ever greater carrying capacity, to not only consider the then ‘new-fangled’ aluminium product, but to over time embrace aluminium with great gusto – in the process making it a market leader.

T&G traces its roots back to 1955, when it was founded by two enterprising men, Ian Stevenson and Bill Box. Ian and Bill set up a general engineering firm, which they successfully carried on until branching out into more specialised trailer manufacturing.

Mike Stevenson is Managing Director of the company his father founded, and is backed up by a very experienced and committed management team that are very proud to continue Ian and Bill’s legacy; A legacy based on traditional values - product quality, innovation, and customer focus, all of which are very much reflected in the business today.
