Family owned Gray & Adams has an enviable reputation for building quality temperature-controlled trailers and rigids. Its customer base is rich and varied, and includes major supermarkets, high-profile fleets, and owner-drivers. While its customers have a broad geographical spread, Gray & Adams is particularly dominant in its domestic Scottish market, and it’s unusual to see a lorry load of shellfish heading south of the border in anything other than a Gray & Adams trailer.
In addition to reefers, the Fraserburgh-based manufacturer produces a full range of multi-temperature vehicles. These feature dividing lanes and insulated bulkheads, splitting the interior laterally or longitudinally, allowing ambient and chilled products to be carried at the same time. It also produces a number of specialist trailers, for moving goods such as live chicks, hanging meat and pharmaceuticals.
Customers looking to maximise their load-carrying potential may want to consider its range of double-deckers, which provide 60% additional floor space. Meanwhile the company claims that its Aerodynamic range can slash fuel costs by as much as 10%.
The company prides itself on its ability to build trailers and bodies to customers’ specific requirements.
