Bloxwich products are used in so many different industries and on so many completely different products that it’s impossible to list them. Trucks & Trailers as the name suggests, their products have been heavily associated with the truck and trailer industries since the 1960’s. In the container industry Bloxwich door gear, hinges, lashing rings, door retainers, and corner fittings etc have been used in the manufacture and repair markets of both shipping and offshore containers ever since the shipping container was first invented. Some customers today still specify and only accept Bloxwich products on their equipment regardless of who and where its manufactured.
