The Thirsk, North Yorkshire based company, now part of the Devenish Group was founded in 1975 as a premium supplier of feeds and supplements for piglets, game and ruminants in the UK and Ireland.
The company has recently ordered an additional 44-tonne urban specification tri-axle curtainsider – the same trailer ordered from Cartwright in 2012 which helped to resolve any problems of farmyard access.
A new feature on this latest trailer from Cartwright is a pull-down cargo restraint system which benefits the driver who no longer has to work at height. It is suited to multi-drop difficult loads, meeting DVSA requirements for load securing.
Rod Sly, Transport Manager of A-ONE Feed Supplements Ltd commented: “We have worked closely with Cartwright and Clive Dingle on this trailer design which is virtually identical to our previous order.
“All our deliveries are farm deliveries and this trailer will be used all over the UK. With the twin command-steer axles this geometry gives excellent manoeuvrability for even the most difficult delivery site.
“In the past, Cartwright has been the only trailer manufacturer interested in putting something together in order to create a solution for our requirements,” he added.
