EST founder Edwin Shirley dies
Edwin Shirley, the man behind legendary entertainment logistics firm EST, has died.
The company, which started in 1974 with just a second-hand bread van, soon expanded to become one of the leading players in the rock and roll trucking industry.
In 2011 it merged with Transam Trucking and continued to trade in tandem with Transam’s existing premises in Suffolk, with a satellite depot and office maintained in Woolwich, south London.
Del Roll, at EST, confirmed Edwin passed away on Tuesday morning (16th April).
