Back in November 2012 Gordon Lovell, Commercial Sales Manager for SMC Crayford, got a call from Mark Singleton our Managing Director. “I’m looking to purchase 7 – 10 New Ford Transit Customs”. Gordon must have thought he was hearing things. He wasn’t, and on the 12th March 2013 SMC Ford delivered not 7, not 10 but…. 12 New Transit Customs to our Head Office in Gravesend.
