Body builder Thompsons to boost production

  • 20 May 2014
  • By Chris Druce

Tip-ex exhibitor Thompsons is to invest in extra production facilities to boost its annual output of tipper bodies by around a quarter.

The body builder will decide in the coming weeks whether to expand its two existing factories in Blackburn or build a new facility there.

Thompsons director Simon Shields, who looks after the company’s northern factories, said: “Our Blackburn sites are well placed to extend our market share whether stretching horizontally from north Wales to Humberside or vertically from Birmingham to Scotland.

“We can also draw upon a huge pool of people well skilled in tipper manufacturing, with the new facility obviously attracting additional manpower from around the area. In every sense, Thompsons is now at the start of the next stage of its development.”

Thompsons also has three factories in Croydon, south London and owns Charlton Bodies in Dover.

  • Tip-ex takes place between the 29 and 31 May at Harrogate International Centre and is the only exhibition dedicated to the tanker and bulk liquid sector. Tip-ex 2014 features free seminars on staying compliant and safe while at work.
