Complementing the workshop manufacturing and service facility, is a design office equipped with state of the art 3D fully integrated CAD draughting systems, interfaced with a sophisticated desk top publishing system. Our parts department houses a vast stock of spare parts for Hoynor, Kassbohrer, Charles Roberts, Marshall Car Transporter and Transporter trailers. We also have a number of Service and Repair Centres nationwide.

History and Development
Transporter Engineering was formed in August 1992 by a nucleus of former Hoynor Specialized Trailers staff, with the intent of being a Spare Parts and Servicing centre for Hoynor's products.

Events quickly moved on from this modest beginning, sparked primarily by the Company's successful development of the Hoynor Mk7. This project culminated in the development of fully re-manufactured 16.5M trailers able to transport, as a minimum load, nine medium sized cars.

In 1995 Transporter Engineering Ltd purchased the design and manufacturing title of the Hoynor range of products. This, together with our own designers' ongoing efforts, allowed us to offer a greatly expanded range of modern vehicle transporters.

In 1996 our Plus 9 Semi-Trailer was proudly awarded the title of Commercial Motor Trailer of the Year. Further to this success the Company gained two further awards by winning the Special Purpose Category at the Trailer of the Year awards 1998, for the Plus 9 Super Semi trailer and again in 1999.

The assets of Transporter Engineering were wholly purchased by Hunwick Engineering in July 2010. Hunwick Engineering, for many years, has been the major supplier of decks, ramps and key profiled parts for our award winning car transporters and their understanding of the business needs will further enhance the end product.

We currently meet a high demand for our popular trailers and drawbar trailers, whilst offering a full range of vehicle transporters, carrying from 2 to 13 cars, to meet the needs of all customers. Design and development of new products is ongoing in keeping up to date with the launch of new cars and commercial type vehicles into the market place, as well as producing variations to our designs to meet the unique needs of our customers.
