Two family-owned companies in Ipswich have taken a long-standing partnership to a new level with the introduction of another co-branded lorry.

Flat roof specialist Bauder and haulage and distribution company Green & Skinner (G&S) have worked together for for more than 13 years, with G&S delivering Bauder’s flat roof, green roof and solar products to construction sites located throughout the UK.

A new multipurpose rigid curtainside lorry is the third vehicle in the G&S fleet to feature Bauder’s livery, together with the G&S logo, rather than the distribution company’s own green and yellow colours.

The move reflects a further increase in deliveries carried out by G&S on behalf of Bauder, which now total 20 to 30 a day and more than 6,000 in a full year – all dispatched from the Bauder warehouse on Landseer Road in Ipswich.

Michael Skinner of G&S said: “We have worked with Bauder for many years and are delighted that the partnership has gone from strength to strength. The unique livery that we have for Bauder makes a lot of sense given the sheer quantity of deliveries we handle for the company but also highlights just how well our relationship has developed.

“We both fully understand each other’s needs and more importantly understand the needs of the end user. The new lorry not only looks great from an aesthetic point of view but is also ideal for deliveries that have restricted access.”

Bauder managing director Andrew Mackenzie added: “We are absolutely delighted with the new co-branded lorry, which is highly symbolic of our strong partnership and how both companies are evolving in order to provide the best service to our clients.
