Tufftruk Limited all started in Sheen Derbyshire in 2012, founded by Ron Blackhurst. Ron has over 40 years’ experience in manufacture engineering.
From a background of tooling development and engineering Ron took his last business (Belle Engineering) and grew it into a high volume manufacturer of equipment for the construction industry with a £50 million turnover.
With his new company Tufftruk Limited, a successful design and manufacturing business was soon achieved.
By 2018 following massive sales success worldwide, Tufftruk moved to a large purpose built manufacturing facility in Leek, Staffordshire
The purpose built factory provides hi-tech assembly of the powered TRUXTA mini dumpers, a market leading machine sold world-wide.
Tufftruk are committed to environmentally friendly products. The electric battery powered EV TRUXTA mini dumper is the most successful model – offering emission and noise free power performance.
Tufftruk’s suppliers of materials and components are, in the main, located within a 30mile radius of the Tufftruk premises, saving the environment in terms of cutting emissions from delivery vehicles and providing the economic benefit of keeping local people employed.
Ron says, “I believe this is a very exciting project, in a time that we need to be looking at ways to reduce emissions and think more about protecting both the local and global environment”
