Witter Engineering

We employ a team of fully qualified engineers who are responsible for the design of your towbar, from first concept through to the issue of production drawings.

The first stage is to view the new vehicle and develop a design concept which will integrate seamlessly with the vehicle manufacturers specified towbar mounting points.

This includes the need to obtain European Type Approval, efficiency of manufacture, ease of installation and, most importantly, the aesthetics of the finished product on the vehicle.

All towbars are designed using the latest 3D Computer Aided Design. This gives us great flexibility during the design process. Once a prototype has been developed it is then tested to the European Type Approval requirements of Directive 94/20EC.

Testing is carried out on our in house servo hydraulic test rigs, and is independently witnessed and authorised by the UK Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA). Only when the VCA are satisfied that we have met all of the criteria of the EC regulations, will they then grant us EC Type Approval for that particular towbar.
