The company’s roots stretch back more than four decades. It was founded by the late Chris Slowey, initially to serve the agricultural sector, hauling fertilizer and fuel products, before expanding into the transportation of construction materials.
Today, Manfreight is managed by the founder’s son, also named Chris, who has driven the company into new areas of business throughout the UK and Ireland since he took up the reins in 2010.
His extensive experience in the transport industry gained over 20 years has stood him in good stead, having worked in various managerial positions for several high profile logistics operators.
In recent times, we have invested close on £1m in our County Armagh hub, while a new depot in Lincolnshire will enable us to enhance our service and support to customers throughout the UK.
