Since 1970, Bell has been building rugged, steel chassis and bases in our Northamptonshire workshop.
Our chassis are used by some of the UK’s best known mobile home builders, and our incredible craftsmanship and attention to detail means they’re built to last.
With almost 70 years of experience between them, we think our engineers are the best in the business. We’re proud of their skills and craftsmanship, and they’re proud to be part of the Bell family.
Read on for snippets about a few of our team members.
Gary arrived at Bell when he was just 17 and knows everything there is to know about chassis building. Fast forward 30+ years and he’s still the heart of our business and our go-to expert. We test him with a hundred questions every day, and he never lets us down.
Clients love Andy’s problem solving skills and in 6 years at Bell, he’s proved he can turn his hand to just about anything. He’s a born engineer who’s full of ideas and enthusiasm. He’s also our resident motorsports enthusiast and is full of stories from the pit lane.
Rich is our metal cutter and is king of the saws. He gets things done right, first time, every time, which explains why he still has all his fingers! He’s a happy welder when we need him to be, playing a massive part in the Bell team.
Danny is our Stig. Nobody knows what he looks like as his face is always behind a welding mask. Danny never stops working and rarely puts down his (welding) gun. He’s our most experienced welder and we’re lucky to have him on board.
Chris earned his engineering stripes in the army and now takes charge in the spray shop. He’s happy welding at the jig and loading the transport too. Building mobile homes is a family thing for Chris and he often helps his dad build and site homes at the weekends.
Josh is second generation Bell, which was founded by his grandad Cedric. His enthusiasm to get to know every job inside and out makes him one to watch in the future, even if the grease and dirt on his face makes him our grubbiest team member (according to his mum).
Gez spent many years in corporate life, but his career began at a drawing board where he designed sheds, stables and even a driving range. As a co-owner of Bell, his day job is managing sales and client relationships but he can also be tempted out of football retirement for the odd charity match.
Sharon and Louise deal with enquiries, orders, accounts and operations. They look after our clients brilliantly, as you’d expect from daughters of our founder Cedric. When Sharon is not knee deep in paperwork, she is in the field with her horses, while Louise prefers to spend time in her caravan.
Our chassis are just the start of the journey
– they’re a base to be built on.
Staycations are on the up, with two thirds of Brits choosing the UK for their main holiday last year. And the mobile and holiday homes we visit offer so much more than they used to – with hot tubs, decking, and bathrooms all adding a touch of luxury but a lot more weight to the basic structure. As a home builder you need to be sure you’re building on a strong and safe platform. We’re thrilled that our longstanding and trusted clients continue to choose Bell.
In 2020, Mintel thinks the UK will be taking 21 million glamping trips. Calling it a super-growth industry is no exaggeration and at Bell we think we have an exciting role to play. Our chassis can support all kinds of glamping accommodation, from pods to lodges. We’re working with some of the most trusted names in the industry – check out what our glamping clients have to say about our service.
Bell Trailers have supported us here at Pathfinder Homes offering technical advice when required and sometimes working within short time frames. They have always been incredibly accommodating and understanding. They are a pleasure to work with. After more than 30 years of working together we are looking forward to many more years of a mutually fruitful relationship.
