Montracon has launched a new range of curtainsider and boxvan bodies for rigids from 7.5-tonnes gross weight.

The curtainsider features an all-bolted galvanised steel underframe and is built to EN12642-XL standards, while the boxvan features an all bolted aluminium underframe.

They will join the company’s refrigerated body range for rigids over 18-tonnes gross.

A curtainsider rigid will be one of four vehicles on the Montracon stand at the upcoming CV Show.

Montracon has also appointed Sara Cleverley as area sales manager for rigid bodies.

She has worked in the truck industry for almost 20 years, mostly in sales and sales support with companies including JC Payne and FP&S Truck and Trailer parts.

Montracon sales and marketing director John Rice said the firm’s Market Weighton site is now the dedicated centre for rigid body production.

“We are and will continue to introduce exciting new products in what is a parallel market sector to trailers”, he added.

Asset Alliance recently took delivery of 91 Montracon bodies - a mix of boxvans, curtainsiders and refrigerated. It has also placed a follow up order for another 24, a mix of curtainsiders and refrigerated.
