"We're engineers", says Gordon of our approach to finding new ways to protect the things that matter to our clients. "I'm a nuts and bolts man."
Gordon founded Cunningham back in 1969 when he spotted the need to provide covers for an agricultural trailer manufacturer and decided he was the man to make them.
Having carved out a niche serving the local farming industry, he then became among the first manufacturers of a new idea in the transport industry: curtainsides. As we now know, they would go on to be used on almost every heavy goods vehicle in the world.
That ethos of innovation has been engrained in our company from the outset and continues to this day.
Gordon continues to travel the world finding cutting-edge uses for covers in the emerging markets of the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Every trip is recorded by a pin on the world map that hangs above his desk – the countries are just about still visible beneath a sea of pins.
