Dennison is a leading manufacturer in both the UK and Ireland dominating the container transport sector. The company is also experiencing significant growth in other markets including construction, timber, steel and oil industries.
In Ireland, Dennison is the market leader in the supply of tipping trailers and in the UK Dennison dominates the skeletal trailer market. The company is also experiencing significant growth in sales of curtainsiders, platform and trombone trailers and its range of machinery carriers.
Throughout its history, Dennison has been an innovative company, with continuous research and development being at the core of the business.
In 1977, Dennison became the first and only company in Ireland to develop and manufacture its own tractor units, producing 250 Dennison trucks over four years at a site in Co. Dublin.
In 2002, Dennison developed the unique sliding tipper trailer concept. Designed to benefit operators currently running 8 x 4 rigid tippers, the sliding tipper offers higher payload, greater fuel efficiency, more flexibility in operation and considerably greater maneuverability on site, including sites where access and space are limited.
The outstanding success of the sliding tipper in the Irish market has led to the development of a range of sliding bogie trailers for the construction industry, including the sliding mixer and sliding brick and block carriers.
