With an impressive career track record which includes 28 years with Jaguar Land Rover and more recently, with McLaren Automotive, Tiger Trailers states that the appointment is a strategic move to coincide with the company’s imminent relocation to a new £22 million manufacturing facility on the Winsford Industrial Estate.

The company adds that the appointment is being seen as the catalyst to take the business to the next level.

John Cartwright, Joint Managing Director said: “We’re genuinely thrilled that Tiger Trailers has been able to attract an exceptional industry professional of the calibre of Richard Else.”

He added: “He has an extremely impressive CV, and he demonstrates the prerequisite drive and dynamism to take the business to the next level. We’re incredibly excited by the potential of our young business, and especially now that Richard is at the helm of our manufacturing activities.”

Richard Else commented: “The opportunity to join a such a young, dynamic, family-run business on its exciting journey was simply too good to miss and, with our genuinely state-of-the-art manufacturing facility almost complete, the prospects for Tiger Trailers fills everyone within the company with real excitement and passion.”

He continued: “I was equally drawn by the exceptional individuals that exist here at Tiger Trailers. My first remit is to manage the transition to our new manufacturing facility, but, I’m already fully focused on engaging the power of the people to deliver a better, even more efficient production process to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. I want to help position the business as an internationally recognised example of UK manufacturing at its very best.”
