Turners was founded in In 1930, when brothers Wallace and Frank Turner bought their first vehicle and began delivering loads from their father’s farm in Soham, Cambridgeshire. Over 90 years on and Turners has grown to be one of the largest and most successful privately owned Transport companies in the United Kingdom operating in excess of 1850 vehicles from 32 sites and employing over 3400 people.
To this day, Turners remain an independent, family owned company now under the experienced stewardship of Wallace Turner’s Grandson, Paul Day.
