Grangetown, Middlesbrough – Titan Trailers, the originator of the heavy-duty THINWALL® line of extruded aluminium bulk trailers, has announced that Newton Trailers of Milton Keynes will be the manufacturer’s official dealer for the UK and Eire.

Based in Canada, Titan Trailers has been delivering trailers to UK hauliers since 2004. In 2009, Titan opened its facility in Middlesbrough to assemble THINWALL tippers, moving floors, rear-dump and hopper trailers for the UK and EU market.

Mike Kloepfer, founder and President of Titan Trailers, considers the appointment of Newton to be an important step forward in Titan’s growth. “Andrew Smith and his father, James, made Newton a leading force in this industry. They understand the bulk trailer market and have a great record for taking care of customers. They also have a tremendous background with KEITH® WALKING FLOOR®, which is a key component in our line-up. We look forward to working closely with Newton to build a new standard for excellence in trailer quality and service here.”

More than 50 years’ experience  

Formed in 1964, Newton Trailers operated in its early years as a bulk transport company, gaining life-long insight into the needs of fleet owners. The firm later turned to supplying tipper trailers for hire and still maintains more than 100 hire trailers. Newton is now considered among the largest dealers of both new and used trailers in the UK. Expanding its range as a stocking service center for the KEITH WALKING FLOOR since 1999, Newton offers 24-hour delivery on moving floor components and provides complete repair and refloor service through a network of partners throughout the UK and Eire. They also have a very robust and active online parts component to their website.

Newton unveiled a new 10-bay workshop and office facility in 2011, occupying a five acre site near the M1 in Milton Keynes. Shortly after opening, the shop was authorized by DVSA as an HGV MOT test center.

A global leader

Kloepfer launched his THINWALL design and manufacturing process in 1996. Supported by Kloepfer’s “customer first” approach to business, his lightweight, high-strength design quickly became the market leader in made-to-order bulk trailers in Canada and America. Following the success of his UK trailers, Kloepfer began to invest in local production and sourcing of critical components such as tyres and running gear. The Titan facility in Middlesbrough has continued to expand with increased demand, including parts inventories and training for skilled staff. Titan recently introduced an Australian facility for produce THINWALL trailers locally. Now, as capacity grows in the UK, Titan is turning its eye to continued sales expansion in additional EU markets.
