Due to the increased demand for rigid tippers and grabs over the last few years, the introduction of Whole Vehicle Type Approval (WVTA) has reduced supply and increased lead times, which many customers are experiencing from several of the UK leading body builders. These lead times were also impacting on the speed of which we could have vehicles ready and available for clients. Kel-Berg decided that the most effective way to reduce these delays was to develop and manufacture its own bodies. Over the last year we have put a number of bodies into the market to ascertain product acceptance and durability, both have passed with flying colours.
To enable us to offer the quality and quantity we need we have made a significate investment in the form of shot blast and paint booth, Samsung automated welding system and laser cutter.
