Solomon to deliver 40 vehicles for London food wholesaler

Haslingden-based Solomon Commercials has received an order for 40 bespoke vehicles from JJ Food Service.

The food wholesaler is based in Enfield, employs more than 1,000 and serves 83,000 customers from small independent café bars to leading Michelin starred restaurants.

The order includes 20 of the 13.5t Isuzus which have already been manufactured and an additional 20 of the 3.5t Isuzu Grafters delivered later in the year.

Each of the 13.5t Isuzus bodies has been manufactured to specific requirements with triple doors, rear docking plates, flexible bulkhead and a GAH refrigeration unit with three-phase electric standby.

The Isuzu Grafters will feature lightweight body mounting, single side door, bi-fold bulkhead, double opening rear doors and again, a GAH refrigeration unit.

Ian Lang and sales manager at Solomon Commercials, said: "We discussed JJ's current challenges and made proposals that will provide a more suitable solution to their operation and the longevity of their fleet, maintaining the quality of the service they provide to their customers.

"Something that was taken very seriously by both parties as getting their product from A to B in the best possible condition is critical to JJ Food Service and them helping their customers to succeed."
