Gray & Adams’ position as the UK’s leading supplier of temperature-controlled semi-trailers and rigid vehicle bodywork has been confirmed, once again, by being awarded three competitive industry awards at the TCS&D Awards 2018.
The business has won both the Refrigerated Rigid of the Year Award and Refrigerated Trailer of the Year Award for the second year running- a first for the business- at the 2018 Temperature-Controlled Storage & Distribution Awards. Adding to the celebrations the team also collected the Innovation Award taking the award total to three. The event recognises companies and individuals who have made a difference in the temperature controlled storage and distribution industry, and this year the awards took place at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.
Gray & Adams has had many reasons to celebrate in recent times, having placed 18th on The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 League Table and reaching a turnover of £150 million in 2017 and now having been awarded the titles of Refrigerated Rigid of the Year, Trailer of the Year and the award for Innovation.
The award submission saw products for the likes of Waitrose, Bidfood, Reynolds and Farmlay Eggs demonstrate Gray & Adams continued standard of excellence with one customer quoting “The service we have received from Gray & Adams has been first class, it was obvious a lot of work went into the design and engineering of this trailer to provide us with an innovative solution and throughout the process they couldn’t do enough to help us. As a result we have a trailer that is of brilliant quality and meets our needs as a business, in turn, helping us to deliver for our customers.”
James and Peter Gray, joint Managing Directors of the business, commented:
“Gray & Adams has a strong business ethos built around people. The award win is testament to both the talent and dedication of the staff and in particular our sales specialists and design engineers who work with our customers to fully understand their requirements. This commitment has facilitated our success and growth over the last 60 years”.
As a business employing more than 700 people at its headquarters in Fraserburgh, and with production facilities in Doncaster, Dunfermline and Belfast, and an after sales operation in Bedford, it’s safe to say the pride and celebrations have been felt business-wide.
