We are pleased to welcome Christopher Padfield to the Empire family

We are pleased to welcome Christopher Padfield to the Empire family

We are pleased to welcome Christopher Padfield to the Empire family. Christopher and his wife are major hunting enthusiasts. Hunting with two packs one in Essex where they live, where Christopher is a hunt master, and one in Lincolnshire which Christopher hunts with regularly. When the Padfield’s came to meet us he had already visited many of the other manufacturers in the UK. Having been recommended to speak to us by one of his friends, Christopher made the long journey across the UK from his home in Essex to speak to our Salesman James early on a Saturday morning.

Having understood Chris’s requirements where other manufacturers had failed, due to James’ personal knowledge of horses and what a hunting box needed to be; Christopher’s search for a horsebox manufacturer came to a halt. James quickly set about searching for a chassis for Christopher and his wife. Having built them the lorry of their dreams, Kevin Jackson the founder of Empire decided that James could deliver the Padfield’s Empire Platinum to their home himself. This was the first time Kevin, who usually likes to do the hand over himself, has let this take place. James made sure he took the time to show them how everything worked. Making sure the Padfield’s felt part of the Empire family and finally celebrating the delivery with a glass of champagne.

Empire welcomes Caroline Ryan Bell

Empire welcomes Caroline Ryan Bell

Empire welcomes Caroline Ryan Bell

Empire welcome British international event rider Caroline Ryan Bell.

Empire are excited to have delivered this afternoon, a new build Empire Classic SE. The Empire Classic range is normally used for clients requiring day living while travelling their horses in comfort and style to local competitions that don’t require them to stay away.

Caroline decided to put a classic spin on her Empire Classic SE and the results where spectacular. She travel to many of the top international horse trials all over the UK and Europe with many horses and now she can still travel the horses in comfort the same as in any Empire but their ample living boasts many features.

We have very much enjoyed working with Caroline helping her to create their perfect Horsebox and we wish her the best of luck for the future.

When Paul Morgan and his partner Vicky where looking for a new lorry they wanted something robust and strong for there team of event horses. But something comfortable enough for Paul to stay away in. Paul runs PM Equestrian, a distributor of AntaresParlanti Roma (and Parlanti Passion), Cambox Isis and Tech Stirrups. These brands have all been handpicked by Paul for there stunning quality and as products that he would –  and does – use whilst riding and competing his own horses: he recommends these to his customers without hesitation.

Paul needed a lorry to do both staying away at trade shows all over the country and all through the year while his partner Vicky competes her string of event horses. When they met Empire at the Hickstead Derby they where quick to order there Empire Classic SE and took delivery this week.
