Chassis Engineering & Bodybuilding

We have over 30 years’ experience in chassis engineering and bodybuilding. Working from a 20 bay workshop facility equipped with overhead cranes and inspection pits, we specialise in the six areas below but can turn our hand to any engineering project, even non-vehicle related. Our integrated paintshop and vehicle sales departments allow us to provide a true one-stop shop for all transport solutions – if you see a tractor unit for sale which you like, talk us about converting it to a high powered rigid and building a body of your choosing.

We pride ourselves on the close links we have with major vehicle manufacturers enabling us to be one of the very limited number of UK companies allowed to carry out authorised chassis conversions.
