Business description

Invents, designs, and manufactures racking systems for the transport of vehicles into shipping containers for worldwide distribution.

All products are designed for safety and longevity, and are highly recyclable, reducing the detrimental impact of more traditional wood packing methods.

Demonstrating its commitment and attention to detail, all racking systems are approved by Bureau Veritas or China Classification Society.

Operating for over 20 years, the business has developed an impressive market share and has built strong relationships with some of the largest vehicle manufacturers across the world.

Having built up a highly reputable business, our clients are offering the company for sale to facilitate semi-retirement plans and encourage growth under the impetus of new ownership, with both shareholders willing to remain within the business for a negotiable handover period.
