Welcome to Thompsons, the UK’s leading tipper bodybuilder


As we move into a second national lockdown in England along with further restrictions across the rest of the UK, we would like to make the following statement concerning all of our businesses within the Thompsons Group.

The Thompsons Group has made significant investments in COVID-19 secure protocols, our Health and Safety team have been working tirelessly to ensure we are fully compliant and that we can keep our employees and customers safe. The new norm is to operate in a fully COVID safe manner and environment for all of our operations throughout the UK, enabling us to continue business as usual. We look forward to being of service to you and assure you of our intention to continue to support our valued customers and partners in the best possible way in these difficult times.


The Thompsons Group is the UK’s No.1 tipper bodybuilder; a true market leader that builds and sells more bodies than all its competitors combined.

From humble origins in East London over 40 years ago, Thompsons is now a truly national business centered on 4 locations in Croydon, Blackburn, Dover and Edinburgh.

Better in design and better in manufacture, Thompsons offers customers the widest possible product range.

Every model delivering unrivalled performance, reliability and value for money.

All backed up by industry – leading standards of nationwide after-sales parts and service support.

For a tipper body, it has to be Thompsons. As the UK’s leading tipper bodybuilder, we make a full range of steel tipper bodies and other tipper products.
