Commercial Towing

Over 70 years in business, Dixon-Bate has earned a proud reputation for developing and manufacturing a range of towing brackets and towing equipment to meet the current and future requirements of vehicle manufacturers and owners.

This no less so than in the light commercial towing sector where engineering excellence is paramount. Dixon-Bate has an enviable reputation for robust engineered quality solutions to towing needs of the regular towing operator.

This demands towbars that are not only tough for the task, but able to receive a range of accessories from universal coupling, steps and even military pintles to meet the flexible needs of towing fleets.

The range is constantly being updated and a package of needs are often agreed in partnership with the customer.
