Ashtree Vision and Safety are one of the UKâ€™s leading commercial mirror exporters. Now into a fifth decade of trading, Ashtree are firmly established as one of Europeâ€™s premier designers and manufacturers of mirrors, mirror arms and mounting brackets for commercial vehicles.
Still family owned and managed, Ashtree have a desire and passion to increase visibility and create solutions for blind spots on all types of vehicle and machine. With no outside share holders to be accountable to we are able to create products that we feel are the best solution rather than something that would satisfy a balance sheet. Designing internally, or working with consultants when required, enables us to manufacture the products that we feel offer the best solution to a visibility issue.
Ashtree are based in Bradford which is a city in Yorkshire in the north of England but our sales activities are not limited to the UK. Over 40% of our production is exported and we have customers in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and Australasia. Our ever increasing commercial mirror exports received royal recognition in 2012 when we were awarded a Queens Enterprise Award in the International Trade category. These are the highest awards that a UK company can win and it has to be demonstrated that there has been continual growth over several years before a company can even be considered for an award.
A lot has happened since we started our journey in 1977 but we feel that Ashtree has a product range that will allow us to face the future with confidence.
