Beacon Foods tries Gray & Adams

Brecon, UK: Beacon Foods has taken opted for Gray & Adams bodies on its latest order for three trucks: two 26-tonne and one-18 tonne MAN. It’s the first time the company has used G&A.

The specification also included built-in cameras and satellite tracking to monitor door opening and fridge temperature.

“All of the vehicles were liveried by Gray & Adams and the high quality finish adds value to our brand by enhancing the service we provide,” he said.
