Welcome to Don-Bur

Through their innovative development of bespoke and aerodynamic, fuel-saving solutions, Don-Bur have become the market champions for the design and manufacture of the complete range of commercial vehicle trailers and rigid bodywork. Their flexible approach to engineering and manufacture provides cost-effective distribution solutions to maximise operational efficiency and profitability.



To acquire the best value, a purchase isn't necessarily the 'what', it's also often the 'why'. Understanding the 'why' is only achieved by forging strong relationships with customers and Don-Bur invests significant resources to understand operations before developing and evolving specifications.

This time-proven ethos ensures that products work harder, last longer and are more efficient than any other 'off-the-shelf' solutions.
