Welcome to Cartwright Group.

We are the one of the UK’s leading trailer, commercial vehicle body and conversion manufacturers, offering the largest, most diverse range of products available in the UK market today. 

Our head office is based on a 38-acre site in Altrincham, Cheshire where we design and manufacture for a wide range of clients - from small, independent businesses to multinationals.

Testament to Cartwright’s build quality, forward-thinking approach and trusted support services are our extraordinary customer relationships that span back over six decades.

In recent years we have rolled out a full range of services including rentals, finance, conversions and fleet services and have become a truly one-stop-shop for the full life service of our vehicles.
We have the ability to offer a fully bespoke trailer design and build service, manufacturing a tailored vehicle based entirely upon your exact specifications through direct consultation with our experts.

Cartwright products are the result of generations of development culminating in long-lasting, highly efficient and reliable equipment. Our designs and processes are constantly evolving as we discover new cost-saving solutions for you, including our acclaimed aerodynamic and fuel efficiency features.

The Cartwright Group are proud to have been featured in the Sunday Times Top Track 250 in both 2017 and 2018.

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.
