Cooperative Funeral Group are one of the first customers!

In November 2016 a Cooperative Funeral Group contacted AR Twigg & Son having purchased a building that had its own set of unique problems in converting it to a Funeral Home. The main problem facing the Customer was how to conduct their business at the rear of the property in a safe, dignified and professional manner.
The rear access door to the property doubled up as a Fire Escape as well as a point of entry for the Mortuary. Accessed by a set of steps the door was higher than the car park below it and this meant a trolley was required to lift from the rear of a vehicle up to a height of 56”.

The widely respected Twigg Universal Loader could not be adapted in such a way to cover such a wide expanse of requirements. This meant that a completely new product had to be designed and manufactured within 3 weeks to ensure the Branch was operational by 30th November.

The new trolley had to have a closed height of less than 16”, be short enough to store under the steps and could not exceed 53” in length. It also had to serve a 3 Tier Rack system also supplied by Twiggs and had to be used in the Chapel of Rest. Having listened to the Customer’s plight and that of other Funeral Directors the new Twigg Compact Loader was created.

The Compact Loader is designed to be used in both the Mortuary, the Chapel of Rest and/or at the Church/Crematorium making it an ‘All in one’ unit. Not only will it store underneath the racking system when it is not in use, but it will also service a 3 tier coffin/mortuary storage rack. The Lifter will also fit under the floor of a hearse if the situation dictated.
