UK-based trailer builder, Montracon, has announced further investment in its Doncaster site, following a €4.9 million upgrade in 2017.
The OEM has reintroduced refrigerated trailer manufacturing into a production facility on its existing Doncaster site, creating a centre of excellence for its entire bodied trailer offering.
The expansion of the site will reportedly allow production capacity to rise to approximately 80 units a week on a single shift basis with an additional production line and 2,500 square metres of factory space created.
“Montracon views this as a positive step within its overall business strategy with numerous synergies being highlighted throughout the company,” the OEM said in a statement. “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.”
