High Quality UK Manufacturing
In recent years, UK based manufacturers of trucks and Trolleys have become vastly reduced as retailers rely more and more on international imports. At Workplace Products, we are still proudly manufacturing high quality Platform Trucks here in the UK. The greatest advantage of UK manufacturing platform trolleys is that we can offer bespoke designs. We can take an existing design and make it meet your needs precisely, without compromise and at a competitive cost. We can design in 2D or 3D and then prototype your bespoke Platform Trolley to ensure it is the right choice for you.

Different Types of Platform Trolley
Platform Trucks can be broken down into various categories based on their different attributes. These can include the materials they are made from, load capacity, general design and functionality.
Many of our lighter duty trucks are made from lightweight Aluminium, allowing them to be loaded into the back of vans and cars with ease. This does reduce long-term durability and load carrying capacity when compared with steel. Aluminium Platform Trolleys often come with a folding handle for easy storage and movement in and out of a vehicle or around a place of work. A folding platform truck makes for a more compact product but does compromise capacity and durability.
Pressed steel deck Platform trolleys offer the same compact advantages of a folding truck but also offer a large load capacity through tougher materials. In Industries such as catering, food production, pharmaceuticals platform trucks are often made from stainless steel or sometimes plastic. Stainless and plastic are easy to clean down making them ideal for areas with exceptionally high hygiene requirements. We offer a wide range of products for this type of application with a variety of budgets in mind to suit all our customer’s needs.
At the top of the line you have our fully welded Platform Trucks. These are manufactured to the highest quality in the UK, made from either powder coated or galvanised mild steel or stainless steel. Some of these trucks have a huge maximum load capacity of 1000Kgs and come in a wide assortment of platform sizes. Our range of standard platforms is vast, but we can also manufacture to your specific requirements.
High quality castors are featured on all our trolleys and the key to easy movement without, compromising health and safety. When moving heavy loads all unnecessary risks should be avoided, and manual handling training is vital. Quality castors and ergonomic designs will help users avoid any unnecessary injury that might come from using unwieldly equipment every day.
