Stobart SDC

SDC Trailers has inked a major deal with Eddie Stobart for 240 new trailers.

The £6.8m order is SDC Trailers’ first major contract win since its acquisition by CIMC Vehicles, the China-based global trailer manufacturer in June this year.

The company will deliver 50 gooseneck skeletal trailers and 25 extendable skeletal trailers for Eddie Stobart’s port logistics, 125 curtainsiders for retail operations and 40 brick and block trailers for the operator’s aggregate division.

It follows the delivery of 50 box trailers to Eddie Stobart earlier this month and  650 curtainsided and boxvan trailers earlier this year.

Mark Cuskeran, CEO of SDC Trailers, said: “It’s been a busy and momentous year for SDC to date, with an expansion to our production facilities, the launch of our pioneering new Kers trailer, our acquisition by CIMC and now the IAA show and Trailer Innovation Awards. The hard work and investment SDC have put into practice over the last few years has allowed us to secure continuing relationships with our customers and be recognised as one of the leading trailer brands in Europe.”
