of PowTec, the horsebox & other things we can do.


Powys Technical Services was formed by Cliff Large in 2009 - a retired company director & mechanical engineer with decades of experience, having provided design led, bespoke solutions to institutions such as the MoD, BAC & the National Grid to name but a few.

The company expertise & diversity is complemented by people that have enjoyed careers in IT, Web/Graphic Design & Telecommunications with companies including British Telecom and Cable & Wireless.

The horsebox

This website is currently aimed in support of this ongoing project.
The concept first came about to solve a personal problem: to give Cliff's daughter a means of transporting her horse without the time & expense of undergoing a trailer test.

We quickly realised that this is a more wide-spread problem. Not only that, we discovered from other horse owners that they were concerned about the safety of their animals in transit, especially if they were unfortunate enough to be involved in a traffic accident.

So... our objective was to carefully develop the design & eventual manufacture of a horsebox that is

  • Light-weight so it can be towed without a "trailer test."
  • Strong to provide safety.
  • Comfortable to reduce stress.
  • Capable off-road, but stable under all conditions.

Project development

We initially built a working concept model which, incidentally, is still in use!
This was followed by a prototype constructed using powder coated steel. It was successfully tested & used to guage public opinion on the novel design.
A pre-production model has recently been completed using aluminium which makes the trailer even lighter & offers much greater resistance to corrosion.


A selection of images of the pre-production model can be viewed by clicking the button below.

Other projects

The diversity of our knowledge & experience allows us to undertake a variety of design led projects.

Renewable energy

In the conceptual stage, we are working on a compact & efficient wind turbine, suitable for both domestic & commerical application.

Website design

We can provide responsive websites that work equally well on all devices from desktop computers to tablets & smartphones.

We are also able to provide Graphic Design to give your website that finishing professional touch.
