A.R. Twigg & Son was founded in Leeds in 1956. When son Richard joined the business in 1959 the business started to make wooden coffin handles in a factory in Leeds as cremation was becoming more widespread. At that time the production of coffin biers was also started.

In the 70s when the Leeds factory was demolished and the business moved to the village Calverley outside of the city, the opportunity was taken at that point to phase out woodworking and plastics to focus on what is now the current business mainstay of engineering.


In more recent times, with headquarters based in Reading, we manufacture and supply our own range of Biers, Lifting Gear and Storage Systems to Funeral Directors,Hospitals and Crematoria. We supply across the UK and to the Irish Republic. We have also exported to other countries including Hong Kong, South Africa, Australia and Holland among others.


To get the best from your Twigg equipment we recommend regular servicing and use of only genuine parts manufactured by ourselves in the UK. We always recommend our customers use J&J Maintenance for all Twigg product service requirements.
