HARSH is a British owned business drawing on years of experience from world leading manufacturers.

Since 1987, HARSH has led the tipping industry by offering products which out perform anything else on the market, it has continued to lead through innovation, testing and listening to our customers needs.

HARSH is not just a UK business, but international. Outside the Americas where HARSH International operates, we sell HARSH equipment to the world. More often than not, these are environments that are extremely challenging to both truck and equipment alike – unmade roads, long distances, very heavy products, extreme temperatures and minimal legislation.

“At HARSH we are not only interested in providing you with simply the best products and support. Our true ambition is to progress our industry as a whole to a safer, more profitable future. Striving for excellence is at the very heart of HARSH; our people, our products and our whole concept of quality customer care.” – Grant Faulkner – Director
