Guarromán (Jaén), 30th January 2018. The Andalusian company Liderkit has manufactured six bodies in kit for IKEA plant in Dubai, one of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates (EAU), intended to be part of the delivery fleet of the multinational Swede company in the Middle East. Moreover, this order could grow up to 50 units, regarding the new needs for distribution and freight that may arise in the short term for IKEA there.

Namely, the model chosen for the purpose of such a significant order was Plywood 14 mm, with dimensions 2 metres high and 5,5 metres long. This is one of the strongest products by Liderkit, and the best option when driving in this type of countries, where roads and ways to access to industrial areas are most irregular. In this sense, the body also has a sandwich 30mm panel roof, specially designed for enabling perfect insulation and high performance in extreme weather conditions, keeping load at constant temperature.

According to Juan de la Cruz Villar, Sales and Marketing Manager of Liderkit, “this cooperation agreement was possible thanks to Precision Machinery, which started contact with IKEA and was in charge of assembling the kits and their subframes, as well as carrying out the electrical installation according to local standards”.

In addition, the floor plate of this box is silent floor model by Liderkit, made of longitudinal aluminium plates; this way, all movements and displacement of the load inside the body will be the easiest and quietest possible.
