Tristar, one of UK’s most respected horsebox manufacturers. We are a family founded, family run company built on knowledge, experience and understanding.
Based in Rural West Wales our workshop houses some of the most up to date aluminium manufacturing equipment. We employ over 30 skilled workers to enable each lorry to be bespoke built to our individual customer needs.
Tristar have always been prepared to listen to customer opinions and take on board areas of improvement, particular attention being paid to ease of operation, Tristar were amongst the first to recognise the importance of accessing engine components and as a result insisted that all horseboxes have tilt cabs.
Another area that has become increasingly important is weight, regulations have tightened up over the last few years which has led to Tristar developing a lightweight horsebox with a maximum payload. Clever use of materials has enabled us to produce a 7.5t horsebox to carry three big horses legally, the design had to be as light as possible but not at the cost of strength. Gwyn often says that he cannot make a pound of weight weigh any less than a pound, although he often wishes he could!
