A contract between Hargreaves Contracting Ltd and Dennison Trailers was formed, for the building of a new factory at the Dennison Trailers site at Caton Road, Lancaster, with a value of £1m. With Hargreaves handling the construction, work on the new factory began during January this year, and was rapidly complete at the end of July.

The new Lancaster factory has been built to increase productivity in trailer manufacturing while enabling its Dennison Fast Parts business – a division that sells trailer parts to the after-market. The building has been designed for use as an assembly plant for lorry trailers, containing eight assembly bays together with a new parts development for Dennison Fast Parts.  The site also includes extensive external storage areas for trailers.

The construction of the new factory involved roof cladding, wall cladding with reconstituted stonework, steel portal frame and brick plinths. Double glazed windows were integrated with colour coated aluminium frames, in addition to impressive mezzanine floors and attractive pitched roofing. Siteworks included fencing, asphalt paving, soft and hard landscaping and floodlighting.

As one of the UK and Ireland’s leading trailer manufacturers, Dennison Trailers pride themselves on supplying customers with the best trailers they can buy. With over 50 years experience and 45,000 trailers to its credit, Dennison has built a reputation to be proud of, offering a wide selection of market-leading, highly innovative and superbly engineered products.

All trailers are designed and customised using the latest 3D solid modelling and stress analysis software. With an experienced design team, some of the most sought after trailers have been produced by Dennison. The establishment are constantly adapting products to meet the requirements of each trailer’s function, regarding saving fuel, maximising payloads, increasing manoeuvrability, improving safety and complying with all legal regulations.

According to Managing Director of Dennison Trailers, James Dennison:

“From the outset, our emphasis has always been on producing quality products. With the announcement of our new facility in Lancaster, our UK operations are going to be taken to a whole new level in terms of engineering and manufacturing excellence – enabling us as a business to continue to meet and exceed the needs of the most demanding operators in the years to come.”
