About Us

The popular Chaser began its production in 1980. The hugely successful Tear Drop turned up in its 2 pin version in 1988. Onto the scene in 1991 was the innovative 1 Pin Tear Drop. Production also included the Zerox, which has had great success in both its sport and student versions. All this adding up to over 25,000 containers manufactured. We've now introduced the Panthera check out our sports rigs section for all the details.
