Graham Bowles has been a Templater Fixer with Counter Production in Watlington, Oxfordshire, for 10 years and has used a Proliner for the past five of them. He says: “It’s not the measuring.

Samskip’s multimodal flat-packs are handled in the same way as containers – from lorries to trains to ships. The stone remains securely in place with no re-handling so is not in danger of being damaged en route, but is easily and safely loaded and unloaded at each end of the journey. And making the most of transport options achieves the lowest costs.
