30 years ago on 1st August 1987 the transport arm of Dennis Dixon Ltd opened for business.
Initially pulling both bulk powder tankers and tote-bin trailers on behalf of ICI Fibres, the company also operated two road tankers that were purchased from ICI. Dennis Dixon is shown photographed in the cab (on the main news page) and still takes great pride and interest in the business, some 18 years after retiring.
We have some interesting (& also some hilarious) photographs from the past, which we will release via our twitter account with a selection also published in the Monthly Safety Bulletin.
A quick note of thanks to all our employees (both past and present), customers and suppliers without whom we would not exist.
The 1st August gives a 30 year service award to Wayne Greenwood, Mark Dixon & Steve Dixon with Brian Atkinson shortly to follow. The nice thing is we all look exactly the same, with no additional weight, wrinkles or grey hair!
