CM Downton has won a £15m contract from Bibby Distribution, transporting goods for insulation manufacturer Isover UK. The five-year deal with the Saint Gobain-owned company will see Downton store and transport goods from Isover’s Runcorn factroy, just 400m away from Downton’s own site. Management, transport and warehouse staff from Bibby, six in total, have been transferred to CM Downton and the operator took full control of the operation in May this year. It also took ownership of 20 Isover-branded trailers. […]
CM Downton saw good levels of growth across the business in its last financial year, with both turnover and pre-tax profit up nearly 9%.
The shortlist for the second Microlise Driver of the Year Awards has been released ahead of the award ceremony later this month.
Bibby Distribution’s turn-around strategy has resulted in the MT Top 100 operator moving back into the black after a recent tough period.
