Automatic sheeting system manufacturer Transcover have recently focussed their engineering expertise towards the agricultural industry boasting the majority of key trailer manufacturers amongst their customer list.
Colin Bartram of Transcover discusses the background to the business; “We began supplying automated cover systems into the construction industry over 20 years ago after Steve Hines Transcovers founder installed the first unit onto one of his fleet of tipper trucks, since then the range adapted and expanded into the waste industry and now our familiar designs are available for agricultural trailers.”
Both the cover systems and tarpaulins are designed and fabricated at Transcover in Kent by its 50 strong team and supported throughout the UK by over 60 National agents. Colin continued; “Our focus has always been on finding the right solutions for our customers and ensuring that the product performs long term, the best way to do this is to keep control of all of the manufacturing processes. All our products are made by us in one side of the building and installed on the other, this ensures that our products go together well first time, every time.”
Transcover had their Agri-STS roll-over system and AgriCover side arm style systems in operation at the LAMMA show earlier this year and say they found that farmers were crying out for an in-cab covering solution to both speed up their processes and tackle health and safety concerns.
