Wabash refrigerated technology on show

Indianapolis, USA, Wabash National Corporation is shpwing its Supreme truck body and other innovations at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

The company will demonstrate its technology in refrigerated transport.
“We are excited to use technology to our advantage to create products that will have the greatest impact on the final mile industry,” said Mike Pettit, national group president – final mile products.

“We listened to our customers’ needs and focused on changes that will be significant in improving their business,” he said.

Supreme and Wabash National have enhanced their refrigerated product lines by focusing on new technology and strategic improvements to strengthen product quality and customer options. Supreme removed wood, steel, and rivets from its best-selling Kold King, a multi-temp solution, eliminating leak points and increasing thermal efficiency.

Also, the Wabash National Cold Chain features a revolutionary moulded structural composite (MSC) technology that delivers exceptional thermal efficiency and makes it lighter, stronger, and two times more puncture resistant than truck bodies with aluminium side walls.

“Our refrigerated customers count on us to build truck bodies that help keep their products cold, but our designs deliver even more,” said Product Manager, Jerry Hughes. “We offer lightweight solutions to save money, stronger walls to reduce impact abrasion, and a variety of options to best meet our customers’ business needs.”

Supreme will also showcase innovations and updates in dry freight truck bodies at the Work Truck Show. The Signature Van will reportedly feature DuraPlate Cell Core technology, a durable, lightweight solution that is up to 150 pounds (68kg) lighter than traditional wall materials and up to five times more puncture resistant. Supreme’s Iner-City, a cutaway with a flat floor, is now available on the Ford Transit and will be upfit with a Ranger Design shelving package, a new solution now available from Supreme.
