With a reputation for quality, efficiency and bespoke manufacturing, Langver is the undisputed market leader in the production of curtainsider ratchet tensioners.

Langver is a global company with its roots firmly in the North of England. Operating from a functional facility in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, we manufacture ratchet tensioners for curtainsiders and currently supply to 90 per cent of the UK market. Quite simply, if your company is manufacturing curtainsiders or using them for distribution, the chances are your trailer will have a Langver tensioner on it.

Every product is individually made, designed in house to meet each client’s exacting standards. It is this process which sets us apart from our competitors. Owners Scott Taylor and Claire Matten undertook a management buyout several years ago and since being at the helm have increased the value of the business by almost 60 per cent. We currently employ 26 people with exceptional skill and craftsmanship.

We have achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification in design, development and manufacture of bespoke curtainsider ratchet tensioners, which ensures our customers receive consistent, good quality products and services by the use of our effective quality management system.
