Racewood Ltd Gallop into Store First

Racewood Ltd


Racewood Equestrian Simulators are the newest arrival at Store First Ellesmere Port.

Racewood Ltd developed their first horse racing simulator, ‘the Ecquiciser’ in 1990, after Managing Director, Bill Greenwood, was approached by one of the leading jockeys of the time, who wanted to sustain his skills whilst recuperating from a long-term injury.

Since creating that first horse riding simulator in 1990, Racewood has - using local industry to manufacture its products - gone from strength to strength and become the worldwide market leader in horse simulators; staying ahead of the game by designing and patenting simulators not only for horse riding, but for dressage and polo, as well.

Why Store First?

Based in Tarporley, Cheshire, Racewood has chosen to use the UK’s number one self-storage company, Store First to store its simulators in. Daniel McGuffog, General Manager at Racewood said: “We chose to use Store First for a variety of reasons. For example, there is no other self-storage company that offers such a vast array of facilities that are free to use. Not only are they free to use, but they are also really helpful, too and provide a free pick-up service.

“With 24-hour access to our equipment, we can make deliveries and collections at any time we need to. We can use the free boardroom facilities should we need to, there’s a free gym. And to top it all off, the Store First self-storage centre has fantastic access, being only 5 minutes away from both the M53 and M56 motorway junctions.

“When faced with all this, plus the excellent process at Store First, it just wouldn’t have made sense to go anywhere else!”

Leading the pack

Nearly every continent in the world has a Racewood simulator, and Racewood is continuing to grow, using the self-storage at the UK’s number one storage provider, Store First, as a platform to help in its expansion mission.
