Liderkit on the road: Reunion Island

In this new section called ‘Liderkit on the road’, we are going to deepen on our projects in Reunion Island, where we already announced about the new shipment of our box body kits last February.

In this respect, Robert Dambreville, Liderkit’s client in this island located to the East of Madagascar, analyses the boxes most demanded by customers in this area of the Mascerenes Islands. He especially highlights that lightness of the product is mostly appreciated to get a good payload in 3.5 tonne vehicles.

We must say that Liderkit has sent three different box models so far: Plywood 14 mm, especially designed for vehicles up to 7,5 tonnes GVW; Sandwich 30 mm, whose front and side panels are made of LiderFOAM® panels 30 mm thick; and Aluminium, built with a two-piece profile system which allows extraordinary quickness and simplicity for assembly.
