CASE STUDY - B&M
“WE NEED SUPPLIERS WE CAN TRUST AND THAT DELIVER...”
B&M IS ONE OF THE UK’S FASTEST GROWING DISCOUNT RETAILERS, OPERATING FROM NEARLY 500 HIGH STREET AND OUT-OF-TOWN STORES ACROSS THE UK, AS WELL AS UNDER THE JA WOLL BRAND IN GERMANY.
B&M placed their first order for Tiger trailers back in July 2014. They were attracted to Tiger due to our ability to manufacture a trailer to their exact standards and the experience of the design team. In 12 months, over 120 double decks have now been supplied.
The high-specification trailers have painted chassis, SAF axles and suspension wth internal suspension control. Galvanised bearers support the 30mm Metsä phenolic-coated floors, which are fitted to both lower and top decks.
In addition, the all bolted body design features GRP translucent roof skin, fully galvanised end frames, with pre-painted twin tier tailift and Tiger front airfoil. When asked why he decided to place an order with Tiger, Mike Benson, Distribution Director of B&M said, “We have an aggressive growth plan, with stores opening weekly. We need suppliers we can trust and that deliver.
We chose Tiger as we had worked with the team previously and we liked the idea of having a new supplier in the business. We have placed four orders for double deck trailers with them now and have been very pleased with the end results. The trailers have integrated well into the operation and at each point of order, any changes to the specification have been accommodated. We have the specification spoton now and we look forward to working with Tiger into the future”.
