HISTORY OF J & D REFRIGERATED LTD

J & D Refrigerated Ltd was set up by Mr John Burrows in 1992. John started the company up initially with just a cool box housed in the back of his Volvo car.  As demand for his services grew, he brought his first proper refrigerated van in 1993. During the following year John added another refrigerated van to ensure that the company could maintain and build on the first class service that John was committed to providing for his existing and new customers. The company continued to go from strength to strength and in 1995, his son, Marcus Burrows, joined the company as a driver. Marcus had been driving vans and lorries since 1988 and had built up extensive experience within the transport industry coupled with his knowledge of the main motorway networks & major routes around all of the UK.

In 1996, Marcus took on the role of Transport Manager for the company and he and John continued to grow the company's fleet of vehicles to meet the ever-increasing demand from their customers.
 

In 1998 there was another addition to J & D Refrigerated Ltd, with Mrs Dee Burrows joining the team as Accounts Manager. Dee brought with her more than 20 years of experience working in the banking sector & John thought that she would be a valuable addition to the company. John's decision was proved correct as this resulted in Dee becoming a partner in the company in 2002.
 

In May 2013 Tom King, John & Dee's nephew, joined the team  as Office Junior/Junior Transport manager. He is fitting in well and as he has grown up around the business, almost from birth, he is well aware of both the company’s and their clients needs. We believe this is a good addition to the company moving forward.

From those early days, the company has grown significantly and gone from strength to strength every year & now has over 200 customers serviced by a fleet of 13 vehicles covering all areas of England & Wales on a daily basis. The company at present employs around 16 drivers for their vehicles on both a full & part time basis. We believe that our commitment to provide the highest quality and standard of service to each and all of our customers - whether they are a small enterprise, a major multinational or a business somewhere in between, will mean that the company will continue to grow to meet each of our customer's individual and unique needs and requirements over the coming years.
