In a significant major investment, TIP relocates its Leeds branch to new facilities at Knottingley
As part of ambitious expansion plans developed since the company was acquired by Chinese conglomerate HNA Group, leading trailer company TIP Trailer Services UK has relocated its existing Leeds branch to a brand-new facility located adjacent to the M62/A1 intersection at Knottingley in Yorkshire.
Sharing this extensive site with sister company TIP Tankers Ltd, TIP Trailer Services offers its customers full trailer rental facilities as well as providing comprehensive trailer and vehicle maintenance services. The site covers 3 acres in size.
Commenting on the move, TIP’s Commercial Director Mike Furnival said: “By moving our previous city centre Leeds branch out to Knottingley, this has provided our customers with a much enhanced local branch facility that is superbly located for easy truck and trailer access to and from the motorway network.”
With an investment approaching £1m, TIP Trailer Services’ Knottingley branch has one MOT lane for all HGV vehicle types and three workshop lanes. The workshop facility is also supported by a fleet of mobile service units (MSU’s) and the number of MSU’s operating from Knottingley is also likely to increase soon as the company plans to increase its current national mobile service unit fleet later this year.
“This new branch at Knottingley is a further serious commitment from TIP to our established customer base and it represents continued major investment under the new ownership of TIP, demonstrating our desire and ability to invest in the future.”
