Montracon adds reefer production at Doncaster site

Doncaster, UK: Montracon has reintroduced refrigerated trailer making at its Doncaster factory.

The move is part of the £4.5m upgrade at the site that includes a new semi-automated shot blast and paint shop.

The expansion will allow production to rise to approximately 80 units a week on a single shift basis with an additional production line and 2,500sq metres of factory space created.

Montracon says in a statement that “the latest technologies within trailer manufacturing and production flow processes are already being implemented at Doncaster and it makes economic sense to reintroduce production of its refrigerated product into Doncaster thus gaining significant economies of scale.”
