SCHMITZ triples reefer production at its Lithuanian plant


Schmitz Cargobull, has a new foaming press to make its Ferroplast insulation panels at its Lithuanian plant that boosts production capacity from 10 to 30 trailers per day.

Schmitz builds S.CS curtain-side trailers, S.KO reefers, M.KO truck box bodies for 12-tonne trucks and vans, Z.KO central axle box trailers, and A.KO box trailers at the Lithuanian factory.

The additional capacity in the panel foaming system will allow it to expand its box body and trailer range.

The trucks with the M.KO body are used mainly for the inner-city distribution. It is for these vehicle bodies in particular that the new foaming system provides better insulation properties, according to Schmitz.
