About Us

The UK's No.1 mobile tower system

Founded in 1926, the business was built on strong values of Safety, Innovation, Quality, Customer Care and Integrity.

Now, part of WernerCo, we are recognised as a leading provider of innovative access equipment, designed and manufactured to the highest quality and safety standards.

Our manufacturing facility, safety, design, technical and QA departments are based in Maldon, Essex, in the South East of England.

The site covers over 12 acres and has state-of-the-art production facilities registered to ISO 9001. Our highly skilled and trained personnel use the very latest laser cutting and robotic welding technology, while aluminium ladders are made on our fully automated ladder line.

This is all complemented by our UK warehouse and distribution depots. In addition, our highly skilled field sales teams, working across Europe, Middle East and Africa, can offer clear advice on the safest access solutions.
