Customised promotional model vehicle specialists, Search Impex, are delighted to announce the forthcoming release of “Kieran’s Pride” - a 1:50 scale V8 50th anniversary edition Scania S650 High (6x2, twin wheel tag axle) tractor unit with 3 axle, refrigerated trailer, customised in the livery of Scottish operator M & M Kerr International Refrigerated Transport.  

The models will be produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Models as a certificated Limited Edition and follow on from the earlier 2019 sell-out release of M&M Kerr’s “Michele’s Pride” model of a Scania & fridge trailer.

The high specification truck on which the model is to be based was one of a limited edition of just 25 produced by Scania for the UK market to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the V8 engine.  M&M Kerr is the proud owner of one of these limited editions and the Scania is finished in a classy dark blue metallic paint and carries  graphics paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of the V8.  This V8 anniversary theme  has also been nicely interwoven into the livery design on the fridge trailer which, as would only be expected, is finished very much in-keeping with M&M Kerr’s current and eye-catching corporate style.

Founded by Andrew Kerr back in 1975 and based in Castle Douglas, south-west Scotland, the business originally started as a livestock haulier but, since the mid-1990s, it is no longer involved in livestock movement and has since become a leader in refrigerated meat transport.  With more than 45 years of service to the Scottish meat industry (2021 marking the Company’s 45th anniversary), M&M Kerr remains a family-run transport company specialising in refrigerated haulage services with daily full-load and groupage services across the UK and Europe.  Now run by Andrew’s son, Mikey, together with his wife, Michele, this husband and wife team share the same commitment, drive and passion that have been the hallmark of the business over the last 45 years or so and which ensures that M&M Kerr continually adapts to meet the changing needs of its customers.  

With a fleet of more than 20 high-specification trucks (a mix of Scania & Volvo) and fridge trailers fitted with the latest temperature and satellite tracking systems, the Company is able to monitor the temperature in every trailer and identify the exact location of the vehicle. In order to help protect  the operator’s commitment to reliability, M&M Kerr generally replaces its tractor units every five years and its trailers every six years and all inspections and maintenance are carried out at its own workshop in Castle Douglas.

M&M Kerr operate throughout Scotland & England and have daily services to France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, as well as running further afield with weekly services to Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.  As to be expected, this means all M&M Kerr drivers are well experienced and have an excellent knowledge of collection and delivery locations throughout Europe.

Without doubt M&M Kerr’s trucks are already a familiar sight to many UK truck enthusiasts and collectors and for sure, the continental work undertaken by this operator almost certainly means a collectors’ following that will extend well into mainland Europe – and probably beyond!
