DBC Foodservices has recently taken delivery of new Gray & Adams trailers from Dawson Rentals. The new trailers have been ordered to update the fleet as part of the company’s ongoing five year replacement cycle and will be used to service a long-standing Ministry of Defence contract, among others.
As well as the prestigious MOD contract, DBC also services a variety of organisations in the education, healthcare and leisure sectors, fulfils various distribution and catering contracts and are proud suppliers to leading high street groups.
The new trailers are multi-temperature specification, in order to fulfil the ranging needs of the business, including ambient, chilled and frozen. DBC offers full stock holding and a full online ordering facility. On this basis, the DBC fleet is also used for inter-depot trucking, transferring stock between the company’s main warehouses at Thatcham and Rotherham to the other ten regional depots.
The new trailers are on contract hire through Dawson Rentals. Gray & Adams is the nominated bodybuilder that is specified as part of the DBC required specification.
“Our experience has proven that the Gray & Adams trailer is of superior quality to other products on the market. This is essential for us when choosing a supplier because durability and reliability are imperative to the success of our business.” – Gill Tomlinson, Fleet Manager, DBC Foodservices
Although in this set-up Dawson Rentals are essentially Gray & Adams’ customer, DBC are included in every stage of the process.
“Gray & Adams take a proactive interest in DBC as the end user to ensure that their specification will suit our requirements 100%. At every stage we are kept informed so that we can be very much involved in the decision making process.” – Gill Tomlinson, Fleet Manager, DBC Foodservice
Specifications for all trailers and bodies designed and manufactured by Gray & Adams, whatever their type, are always completely unique to meet each customer’s individual requirements and the company’s commitment to quality is reflected in the personal and consultative approach to business that has been experienced by DBC. Customers and end-users participate fully in the design and development of their product to ensure that the most appropriate vehicle and trailer specifications are created for their particular application.
