Company today


Abel Systems has been at the forefront of demountable system manufacture in the UK for many years and has such has earned itself an enviable reputation for providing logistics solutions to companies large and small throughout the country. As a direct result of its involvement with demountable drawbar combinations it has now increased its manufacturing presence to include the production of drawbar trailers to accept fixed bodywork, for which it can include many high profile users.

The ripple effect emanating from the production of demountable systems and drawbar trailers has been the creation of a bodybuilding facility which is capable of producing all types of bodywork from the standard dry freight box van and curtainside body to the more sophisticated insulated and air conditioned specialist requirements of discerning operators whos requirements fall outside the norm.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Wheelbase Engineering Ltd, Abel Systems have the added benefit of expertise in other areas upon which it can draw, allowing them to develop into yet another product line well suited to their specialist skills, that being chassis modification. The modification of a chassis can take many forms, from the extension or reduction of a wheelbase to the addition of extra axles and on to highly technical modifications involving changes to braking systems, electrics and the steering mechanism, all of which are now possible under the banner of Abel Systems.
