Speedbird Promotions has just landed a major order from Scania UK to help the truck company celebrate 50 years.

Ben Lord’s Speedbird, of Thistledown Drive, Ixworth, specialises in the supply and development of replica scale models for the road transport industry, but this is the first deal the nine-year-old company has done with the Scania UK.

Scania is marking its 50th anniversary in the UK with a special limited edition truck of which only 50 are available called the Golden Griffin. Speedbird has been asked to supply a model of it.

Ben said: “The production of this model will be undertaken by our Dutch manufacturing partners, Tekno, who we represent exclusively in the UK market, and because of the high-quality nature of our product, we were chosen to produce this model.”

Each model will be in a luxury presentation gift box with a limited edition certificate.
