About Ellis & Son Vehicle Builders Limited

Ellis & Son are a thoroughly modern vehicle body building company and yet are steeped in history.

Founded in 1943 by Mr. Isaac Ellis who was apprenticed as a wheelwright and coachbuilder. Isaac initially established a market manufacturing and repairing trailers and equipment for the local agricultural community in Kent.

Isaac was later joined by his son Ernest in 1947, when they widened the scope of the business to service the requirements of the rapidly modernising transport and distribution services that were expanding in the area.

As Ellis & Son quickly established a reputation with local hauliers, transport companies and truck dealerships they outgrew their original site and moved to premises at Five Oak Green in 1962.

The move away from traditional timber products led to the purchase in 1972 of a local metal fabrication and welding company to bring in expertise in these areas. The emphasis on craft skills has been carried through the years, resulting in a well trained, highly experienced and loyal workforce.

Ellis & Son moved from Five Oak Green to Horsmonden before moving into their fully refurbished premises at Longbrooks in Brenchley where we currently operate from.

We have worked hard to build and maintain a reputation for manufacturing good quality products backed up with excellent after sales service.
