Empire are very excited to welcome event rider Tom Rowland to its ever growing family. Empire undertook a full renovation and body swap on Toms old horsebox. Tom who’s old Lorry needed some restoration work was thrilled with the result which included a full re paint.
It has been an absolute pleasure to build this bespoke beauty for the Barratt family this stunning, coach-built Empire Superior SE was delivered last week in time for the family to prepare it for a trip to Belguim! It was a real privilege to see how delighted these returning owners were, having already purchased an Empire Extreme from us a few years ago there was no hesitation in the customers decision of who to contact when they decided to go for an HGV build. We wish them all the best and hope they enjoy using the horsebox as much as we have loved building it.
Another week and another Empire leaves the workshop! We welcome Rachel White and her team to the Empire family.
Rachel who lives in Swansea looked at a range of manufacturers before meeting the team at Empire and ordering her bespoke Empire Superior from us. It has been a true pleasure building this bespoke beauty for Rachel and we hope they enjoy using it as much as we have enjoyed building it!
We wish her the best of luck for the rest of 2016.
When the Watson family were looking for a custom built horse box, they took the recommendations of their friends and colleagues in the dressage world, several names were suggested and so Ian and his daughter Bronte went to visit each manufacturer individually. Their focus was on strength, quality, and innovation but also that the manufacturer they would choose would ensure that the vehicle created for them was everything they wished for and not just another box on the production line.
Having seen the quality of the Empire workmanship and how each build is treated with the care and attention to detail a custom built box should be, whilst also having viewed several of our previous clients builds; the Watsons went for our most bespoke product, an Empire Ultimate.
During the boxes period of creation, a strong relationship has developed with Empire and the Watson’s and we took great pleasure in personally delivering the lorry to them.
We wish the Watson family all the best and thank them for their business.
