Thompsons, Blackburn

In 2001, Thompsons made the huge step of opening its first factory away from the South East. With its local area already familiar with all things tippers, Blackburn in Lancashire was the obvious place to go.

In the succeeding 15 years, the company has opened not just another Blackburn site, but a further one too. Purpose designed for our needs, the three Blackburn factories allow us to produce bodies with the maximum possible efficiency – so much so that today Blackburn actually produces more tipper bodies than Croydon.

Blackburn also works for us because of its excellent communications – in less than two hours travelling time, we can cover everywhere from the Midlands to Scotland and Liverpool to Hull. As such, we can reach out to hundreds of new customers right across the key industrial regions of the UK, not just for sales but also with vital parts and service support too.
