A landmark year for team Thompsons

Latest News | 20th Nov

As we approach Christmas we can reflect that 2017 has been yet another huge year for the Thompsons Group.

2017’s centrepiece event must be the establishment of our factory in Scotland, now up and running with fully trained staff, new shopfloor machine tools and an order book already stretching right through to next springtime. A highly individual market in its own right, Scotland will undoubtedly play a key role in the company’s long term development.

At the other end of the UK, Charlton in Dover is also busier than ever, not just with tippers but also in producing their own innovative and highly technical bodywork solutions. By building specialist and often highly bespoke truck bodies to address individual customer requirements, Charlton really does bring a significant extra dimension to our Group portfolio.

Also this year we completely revamped our Service Department, giving it the new, more open – ended identity of ServiceTech. Why? Because today we do much more than just repair tippers. Today’s marketplace demands that we offer a full range of vehicle services, including both fitting out new trucks ready for work as well as comprehensive maintenance throughout their working lives. As well as tippers, Thompsons is now a leading supplier of skiploaders and hookloaders too.

Also in the aftermarket, our unique internet – based Thompsons eParts operation continues to break its own sales records, and now offers operators over 6,000 individual line items from a pair of work gloves to a complete crane.

Back in June, we went to the annual TIP-Ex Show in Harrogate with over 30 vehicles – our strongest number of exhibits ever.

Are we now sitting back and resting? Certainly not, because we’ve already got a number of major new product innovations to launch at TIP-Ex ’18.

The below eBrochure gives you the real flavour of the Thompsons Group today. Read on!
