We are delighted to be supplying Downton with one of the first deliveries of the new Tiger trailers!

The Gloucestershire based logistics provider is investing in a total of 60 curtain trailers for use in its network. the high specification trailers have been designed to be used for a range of work, including paper, glass and brewery distribution.

This requirement has led to Tiger’s engineering team designing a trailer to meet Downton’s exacting requirements, that will suit its various operations. The 13.7 metre curtainsided clearspan trailers have a number of unique features. This is in addition to Tiger’s EN 12642XL as standard.

The trailers include the optional Tiger 'over chassis beam' floor design, providing a perfectly flat floor surface. By allowing the floor to sit above the chassis I beam, it improves weather proofing and contributes towards greater health and safety.

Other features include double skinned front bulkhead and a special load resistant system that will suit both brewery and glass restraint.

The trailers also have Tiger’s 'paint free' option, which features a fully galvanised chassis and body, with pre-impregnated front Tiger airfoil and rear doors.

Andy Downton, Managing Director of Downton commented, "We are pleased to be taking delivery of our first order of Tiger Trailers. From initial meetings with the Tiger Team, through to design and build, we have been very happy with all aspects. Their team’s industry expertise has gone a long way for us in making the decision to be one of the first customers for this new UK manufacturer, and we wish them every future success."

Steven Cartwright, Tiger’s Joint MD, said "It is a privilege to be supplying Downton with some of the first Tiger Trailers. Their business is a great success story and we hope the Tiger and Downton partnership will continue well into the future."
