Welcome to The Cartwright Group.

The Cartwright Group is one of the UK’s leading commercial vehicle body, trailer and conversion manufacturers, offering the largest, most diverse and innovative range of products available in the UK market today. The privately owned family business has been in operation since 1952 with a completely self-sufficient manufacturing plant based on a purpose built, 38-acre site in Altrincham, Cheshire. Cartwright offers a complete solution from manufacturing to your exact specification to financing, maintenance and fleet management.

Better. Built in Britain.

The UK commercial vehicle industry is the most challenging, competitive, regulated and legislated in the world. With health and safety, emissions, social and environmental responsibilities high on the agenda of the UK government’s policy committees, the industry has had to adapt and conform many times over the years. These challenges will continue and UK operators will have to adapt and react even more quickly than in the past, and that’s where we come into our own.

One of the key ways to help our customers overcome these challenges is to be innovative and this is one of the major strands that make up the DNA of the Cartwright Group. The foundation of our business is based on British innovation, British engineering, British creativity, design and state of the art manufacturing at our purpose built facilities in Altrincham. We are a British company through and through and quite rightly, very proud of it. We actively encourage and promote home-grown talent within our business, providing industry leading apprenticeship schemes, training programmes and career opportunities for all our staff.
