New research, design and development facility for Trucksmith

Feb 01, 2013
Devon-based coachbuilder Trucksmith has opened a new research, design and development facility, dedicated to efficiently fulfilling any commercial vehicle design brief.
Trucksmith recently put its first design, a 3.5 tonne (GVW) low floored Luton, through the European Whole Vehicle Type Approval process and benefitted greatly from having the new facility to do it from.

Trucksmith Drawing Office Technician Laurie Hutchison has been taken on to help develop the Trucksmith design process even further and is excited about the new venture.  “The new location for the Research Design & Development department is a fantastic environment to work in, providing a fertile platform with the resources to accomplish every client’s design brief,” he said.

Trucksmith Managing Director Daniel Trebble said: “The new facility is a big financial investment for Trucksmith and it’s one we are happy to make. Developing new products and advancing existing ones is a must for us.  We have had a record year in 2012 and are looking to produce even more vehicles in 2013. With the advances this facility helps us make it means they will be built ever more efficiently, benefitting the workforce and the customer.”
