ABOUT TOWMATE

Our vision is to become globally recognised as the trailer manufacturer of choice for the gas, water, electric and telecommunications industries.

WHY CHOOSE TOWMATE

“Solving our customers’ challenges is our bread and butter. Whether it is an engineering challenge or a tight delivery deadline, we thrive on going above and beyond for our customers.”

OUR VALUES

Be Passionate | Be Professional | Be Driven | Be Caring | Be Honest

WHY WAS TOWMATE CREATED?

The Towmate passion and energy started way back in 1995, when we first commenced supplying spare parts for all makes of trailer and towed equipment. Our desire to understand your needs and a constant pursuit of excellent service led Towmate to expand our portfolio of products to include trailers.

From humble beginnings in a garden shed, Towmate has sustained consistent year-on-year growth and has become a brand that believes in so much more than selling top-quality trailers that are designed and manufactured in Britain.

We realise that your business is not trailers. The equipment is simply a tool and a means to an end. Your role is to facilitate the mobilisation of your towing equipment to site so that your teams can do their job and you can keep your customers happy. In today’s world, this is no easy feat, with multiple challenges to overcome, from ensuring your fleet is compliant to meeting health & safety requirements.

Ensuring that your team remains safe whilst working for you is a top priority and something we attach great importance to throughout the design and manufacturing process. Our range is not just about standard trailers, but towed solutions that solve the specific challenges you’re facing.

TRUSTED FOR OVER 25 YEARS

Our experience with spares and our understanding of the challenges faced by operators in the utility, plant hire, civil engineering, landscape and forestry industries, has enabled us to create tough trailers built to stand the rigours of hard work.

Whilst we have a range of Standard and Pro trailers designed with 25 years of industry experience, many of our trailer solutions are by no means standard. We relish the challenge of creating special-build solutions that are as bespoke as your individual requirements.

AWARDS AND ACCREDITATIONS

All Towmate products carry VCA Type approval. We operate to ISO9001 and ISO14001 standards. We have partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain to measure and offset our carbon footprint to become certified as a Carbon Neutral business.
