MAYPRODTRUCKMANGood news from the West Midlands this month from Auto Styling Truckman. The company produces and distributes hard tops for pick-up trucks, and sales (both in the UK and export) has seen turnover increase from £3.5m to £5m in the last 12 months, an increase of 40 per cent.

Auto Styling UK was founded in 2002 by Mike Wheeler, and has grown to be one of the UK’s major distributor of accessories for 4x4s. The company now manufacturers the Truckman hard tops after rescuing the company from administration back in 2008 – at the time, Truckman had a 25 year heritage, but found itself in difficulty during the ‘credit crunch’.

As Mike Wheeler explained: “We have been able to not only rescue Truckman, but, after four years under our stewardship, we have developed a successful manufacturing division that is achieving annual growth and can proudly be part of the West Midlands’ world-famous automotive sector.”
