Dawsongroup truck and trailer is pleased to announce delivery of 170 trailers from our supplier, Dennison Trailers.
The order from Dennison includes 100 sliding bogie skeletal trailers, 50 12-lock platform skeletal trailers and 20 pillarless curtainsiders.
Dawsongroup truck and trailer’s Managing Director, John Fletcher, said, “We have always taken product onto our fleet based on build quality, performance and whole life cost. Unless all three seem right, we don’t get involved – we owe it to our own customers, who have long trusted us to supply quality products at sensible pricing. That is key to our business, so we take time in selecting any new supplier partners. It has been a while since the initial approach from James and his team, but very worthwhile in terms of establishing trust in their offerings and building the relationships between our two teams.”
James Dennison is a second-generation member of the founding family of the trailer business, which has been building trailers for almost 60 years. Initially at a modern factory at Naas in Ireland and then, since 1989, at Lancaster in the UK. He said, “We have a number of ‘blue chip’ customers, but Dawsongroup had always been high on our top target list. So I am grateful to John for giving us the chance to convince him and his people of our quality and reliability as a manufacturer and for the subsequent order. It means a lot to us and naturally we hope it is the first of many to come. We are on schedule with deliveries, with only a small number of skeletals and curstainsiders left to go out.”
The sliding skeletals are suitable for 20′, 30′, 40′ and 45′ plus 13.6m intermodal containers. A roller arrangement allows bushes to be changed without splitting the trailer, an automatic reset simplifies raising/lowering ride height, and there is a “Push Pull” valve for air-operated locking pins.
The platform skeletals all feature LED sidelights and outline markers. The curtainsiders, also with LED sidelights, are finished with Dawsonblue curtains and are all fully ENXL certified.
