Following over 20 years in the towing industry, Tow-Trust Towbars Ltd was set up by Joint Directors Ian & Elaine Miller in 1991. The company was founded with a small ambition that has grown and grown ever since; 'to provide the highest quality products'. Located in a single Unit in Atherstone, Warwickshire, the company set about this ambition by manufacturing and fitting towbars on a small scale for the local Midland's area. As the product range and reputation of this new manufacturing firm grew, the 1990's quickly saw Tow-Trust establish themselves as a nationwide supplier of towbars and towing products.
The direction of the company from day one was simple, 'to supply quality products at competitive prices' and this philosophy remains very much at the heart of Tow-Trust today. Quickly out growing their previous manufacturing site, Tow-Trust moved in 1995 to larger premises on the Carlyon Road Industrial Estate in Atherstone in order to house new hi-tech machinery that improved production efficiency and quality.
Through the years Ian and Elaine have been joined by their two sons Tom and Alan, who along with Tow-Trust's large specialised work force have also bought into the values of the family business; quality, quality, quality. Despite the structure of the company growing vastly over the years, the 'personal approach' that is often associated with a family business is very much still in evidence today. Still located at the current premises on Carlyon Road in Atherstone, the production site continues to grow enabling higher volumes of stock, improved production capabilities and more of the latest manufacturing equipment to be held. This has all aided Tow-Trust in supplying its established national network of committed stockists.
Whilst now also supplying areas of Europe, there is one simple thing that makes Tow-Trust especially proud today 'œthere are many customers who we supplied at the beginning, who we still supply today. I believe that pays a huge compliment to not only the products we supply, but to the first class personal service we offer here at Tow-Trust' comments Managing Director Ian Miller who adds 'œword of mouth is probably the best form of advertisement there is, and through our network of happy customers nationwide, we are now constantly approached by other professional fitting centres for supply of our products'.
So whilst many professionals appear to have bought into Tow-Trust's shared ambition, it is now up to you to ask for a Tow-Trust product next time you need a towbar fitting.
