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.VIEW TRAILER RANGE
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.
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.QA & TESTING
I work with each of the department managers to ensure the business is operating efficiently and continues to grow.
I have only ever worked at ATE / Towmate. I have worked in every area of the business, from servicing trailers and fitting towbars to packing parcels, processing orders, setting up the IT systems, serving on the trade counter producing marketing material and visiting customers.
Working with a great team and delivering outstanding customer service.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. It’s the best way to learn.
I’m involved with various charitable organisations outside of work including being a governor at a private secondary school. When I get any spare time, my wife and 4 kids keep me busy, and I enjoy working in the garden at weekends.
Steak and chips.
Starting with ATE (UK) in 1995, Steve works with Towmate's department managers to ensure the business is operating efficiently and continues to grow.

Building long-term customer relationships that lead to ongoing success.
Spending time with my wife Saski and 2 children; Tora and Maxwell. Going out for family days, walking and sightseeing. BBQ, especially smoking meat low & slow or frying chicken!

Duncan started in February 2022 and looks after our strategic accounts.
Schooling. Finished sixth form in May of 2020.
How friendly and welcoming everyone is. Coming from school straight into work is very overwhelming and a big adjustment but everyone was, and continues to be very open and friendly and willing to lend a hand.
I like to do a bit of photography here and there and I also like doing a bit of cooking. Getting out for walks or going for bike rides by the coast is also nice.
Urm, I’m not really sure to be honest, I don’t really have a favourite food, really like experimenting with new things and trying out different cuisines and styles of cooking, although I am very partial to a tub of Halo Top Peanut Butter Cup ice cream.
Starting with Towmate in July 2020, Tiana is the Marketing Manager and Executive Assistant.
Prior to joining Towmate, I have always worked in the local area for engineering-based businesses which includes FlaktWoods, A.Smith Gt Bentley Ltd and Cookson & Zinn (PTL) Ltd. I followed an engineering apprenticeship and have held positions in Product Design, Welding Engineering, and for the largest part Production & Operations Management.
My favourite thing about working at Towmate is the warm, positive and helpful approach of everyone who works here. The working environment is fantastic too!
I enjoy spending time with my family, most sports and particularly playing golf & road cycling for fun.
Traditional Sunday lunch.
Nigel joined us in February 2022 as our Operations Manager.
My background is in electrical engineering. Previously working as Production Manager for a company that made packaging machines for the food and consumer goods industry. I provided support, direction and scheduling for the assembly and warehouse team.
It is great to be part of a company who has a clear direction and an understanding of how the team can get there.
Anything as long as it’s on a boat! Also spending time out and about with my wife, daughter and son.
Fresh, handmade pizza with plenty of pepperoni, or a good carbonara. Actually, most Italian foods!
Richard joined Towmate in September 2020 and is our Production Manager.

Problem solving and developing designs to achieve a better product
My wife and I have a little girl called Melia who’s 2 years old now, we love to spend family time together and traveling to exciting new countries to experience different cultures. I also enjoy socialising with friends.
Chicken Tikka Jalfrezi.
Jack joined us in June 2021 and is our Engineering Manager.
After studying sports science at university, a weird turn of events led me to Engineering. I started as a Design apprentice for a company that manufactured Rotatory Equipment for 3 years, then designed and manufactured Piling Equipment for a company for over 10 years. Most recently I joined a company that manufactured medical devices.
The responsibility of developing existing and future designs to make sure that Towmate Trailers are up there with the best.
I have a wife and 2 boys, so spending time with them and running them around, whether it be to Gymnastics or to karate. Back in the day, I used to enjoy playing sport. If I get time then I still like to get involved a little.
This is a hard question as I just love food… I think it would be a nice Fish and Chips!
Joining the business in September 2021, Liam works in our Engineering department.
I have mostly been in a finance role for a local Colchester company – Bury Fixings and more recently covered an internal sales role too.
Good atmosphere and friendly people to work with.
I like to cook as well as reading books and socialising with family. Also, I enjoy going for long walks.
Starting at Towmate in January 2018, Bronia is our Finance Manager.
I work in the IT department, managing all aspects of Towmate’s IT systems. If it has a plug on the end, it is probably down to me!
I was born inside a computer; well it feels like that sometimes! I started out working for a company that provided support for Telex Systems (for shipping companies), who also linked “different” computer systems together, then moved to the software division providing on-site network support (amongst other things – including development). Most recently I worked for a large concession-based Jewellery Business (you will not have heard of them but will have seen the products!) as I.T. Manager.
I know that everyone says this, but it is the people! A fantastic team of people all working towards a common goal! A great working environment and I come to work every day looking forward to new challenges. Never a dull day!
We have a young daughter who takes up most of our time. So, it is mostly spending as much time together as a family, trying to get away on holiday when we can and generally enjoying life.
That is a horrible question, I love all food! Would probably have to be steak and chips (although curry – chicken tikka masala/balti is a close second).
Joining us in September 2020, James works in the IT department, managing all aspects of Towmate's IT systems.
What did you do before you joined Towmate?
I left school last spring and went on to work for Greenmill AC, I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and worked in the customer service department for the first 4 months and then went on to work as an EA and sales support.
What is your favourite thing about working for Towmate Trailers?
I’ve enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere here and feel comfortable in the team having only been here a few days!
What do you like to do when you are not at work?
I love traveling around, experiencing different cultures and scenery around the world. Still, I am also very happy just spending time outdoors (when the sun’s out especially!) either in the garden or at the coast. Besides this, I love cooking and spending time with friends and family over some good food and drink.
If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I love all different cuisines but if I was going to have to eat this one meal all the time, it would have to be some sort of noodle dish… maybe chicken chow mein?
