Schmitz Cargobull expands production capacity in Panevezys
Schmitz Cargobull, a German capital company operating in Panevezys, has tripled its isothermal trailer, semi-trailer, bodywork and other truck-oriented machinery production capacity.
The company has developed a new isothermic-plate-molding equipment, which has allowed it to increase the production of isothermal trailers from 10 to 30 per day.
The company’s Lithuanian facility produces a range of trailers, from S.CS enclosed trailers and S.KO isothermal semi-trailers to M.KO Hardback superstructures for trucks weighing over 12 tones, Z.KO central axis isothermal trailers and A.KO isothermal trailers. The facility will utilize its new thermal insulation system production capacity to expand its assortment of hardback superstructures and trailers.
Trucks equipped with an M.KO superstructure are especially suited to short distances and use within cities. According to the company’s announcement, the introduction of this new thermal insulation system will greatly enhance the thermo-insulation properties of the superstructures.
As previously announced by VŽ, the company’s revenues for 2017 increased by 62,7% to 121.345 mln. Eur.
Schmitz Cargobull Panevezys is 100% owned by Schmitz Cargobull Germany.
