About Yofil

Commercial vehicle wheel washing equipment specialists

OUR STORY

Yofil was founded in 2016 by Chris May and Jon Shackleton. From our base in Warrington, Cheshire, we design and manufacture commercial vehicle wheel washing systems. Our specialist wheel wash equipment helps companies to meet their obligations under the Highways Act 1980 by ensuring public highways are kept clean and free of contaminants.

After meeting in 2012 and striking up a friendship over shared interests and experiences, we manufactured our first wheel wash system in 2016 and never looked back. Since then, we’ve won local, national and international contracts. Clients and suppliers value our easy-going nature and determination to deliver solutions.

In 2019, Yofil won the contract to supply wheel washing equipment to the high profile HS2 rail construction project, providing 21 systems to UK sites, with adaptations for each location.

We have a wealth of technical knowledge and practical industry experience. Our modular systems can be hired or purchased and interchangeable components allow complete flexibility. All equipment is designed, manufactured and installed by our team to strict quality and health and safety standards.

WHO WE WORK WITH

We supply drive through baths, dry ramp systems, rumble roads and wash platforms to businesses in the energy, agriculture, military and construction sectors. Clients include nuclear and coal power stations, quarries, landfill sites, sewage treatment works and utility companies.

Supported by our Danish distribution partner, we export wheel wash machinery worldwide and are proud to have serviced projects in Iceland, France, Shetland, Canada, Germany and the Falklands.
