Our heritage

Set-up with a single lorry in 1935 by A.E.H Dawson as a haulage company, the group, under the current guidance of Peter Dawson, has grown by focusing its business model on asset rental for cold storage, vans, buses, coaches, materials handling equipment and sweepers. Through acquisitions and a market-leading service, Dawsongroup has become more than just an asset rental company, now able to offer a solutions-based approach to business needs. This has never been more apparent in today’s world, where cold storage is critical in most supply chains. With the third generation of the family now working in the business, the group is able to offer this experience through an array of innovative cold storage solutions.
