The food wholesaler took delivery of seven MAN TGM 18t vehicles in June last year but has placed an order for more vehicles with the leading manufacturer of refrigerated vehicles.
In January, Solomon Commercials supplied Birchall’s with two MAN TGE 3.5t Slipstream side bodies which have been built bespoke to the food wholesaler’s requirements, but the order will see an additional 20 MAN TGM 18t full Slipstream Multi-Temperature trucks, six MAN TGE 3.5t featuring the Slipstream side entry bodies and five of the MAN TGL 12t vehicles by June.
Burnley-based Birchall Foodservice has been in operation for more than 80 years and is a fifth-generation family business and prides itself on its flexibility and local knowledge to help independent caterers flourish.
Justin Birchall, managing director of Birchall Foodservice said: “A progressive business such as ours needs to ensure our fleet performs well while having the optimum capacity and minimising environmental impact through using innovative aerodynamic bodies.
“We have a long-stand working relationship with Solomons, and they understand perfectly what we need to ensure our food products get from a-to-b in perfect condition. They’re an important partner in making sure our customer gets the best service.”
