UK-based OEM, Gray & Adams – which has maintained a relationship with chilled distribution specialist Chiltern since its inception in 1993 – is building its 100th trailer.
Chiltern Distribution specialises in innovative transport solutions for frozen, chilled and ambient distribution.
Chiltern Distribution’s Managing Director, Paul Jackson, said,
“There was only ever going to be one trailer company to build our 100th trailer, and that's Gray & Adams,” said Chiltern Distribution Managing Director, Paul Jackson.
“As we’ve grown, Gray & Adams has always been there, consistently offering the best quality products in the business and a customer service that is second to none. In my experience, you absolutely get what you pay for in terms of quality and at Chiltern Distribution we need that defined focus on quality, reliability and customer service excellence.
“Our partnership has been built on shared values, with quality being front and centre for both businesses,” he said. “We’ve worked closely together on numerous rigids and trailers throughout the years and the Gray & Adams team always come up with innovation and added value solutions, whatever the product.”
The 100th trailer is reported to build on Chiltern's exacting fleet specifications and adds several new features, including steel flooring, additional pallet protection, a rear buffer bar, aerodynamic features and cappings, a special 100th trailer livery and many other additional aesthetic features to make this trailer extra special.
Additionally, Chiltern’s 'One Driver – One Truck – One Trailer' system (where possible) allows drivers to take pride in their fleet through their ownership of the trailer.
“The system gives them accountability and helps to ensure the care and condition of their vehicle for the duration of its service to the business,” Gray & Adams said in a statement.
“With support from Peter Gray and many others at Gray & Adams, we are very proud to show off our 100th trailer,” said Jackson. “The driver who will take this trailer on, is absolutely delighted and can’t wait to get it on the road. We’re so pleased with our celebratory livery and, in fact, with every element of the process we’ve been through with Gray & Adams to ensure this trailer is a true celebration of the growth and success of our business.”
