Successful return to CV Show for SDC Trailers


SDC Trailers, made a successful return to the Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC, Birmingham. The UK & Ireland manufacturer displayed one trailer from their range in the vehicle display area, along with a custom-made ‘semi-trailer’ exhibition stand. The company’s Truck & Trailer Parts division will also had a dedicated exhibit area on SDC’s stand 5D85.

SDC’s Group President, Paul Bratton said: “The Commercial Vehicle show provided a premium opportunity for us to showcase our comprehensive semi-trailer range and services. Given the fluidity of the market and many challenges that hauliers are currently facing, the CV show provided us with the opportunity to meet customers and decision-makers during these difficult times.

As well as having a trailer in the vehicle display area, our stand has been built to showcase the key features of our Freespan Curtainsider following its successful launch to customers in 2020. The Freespan trailer theme allows us to focus on the key design features which add to the durability, functionality, and reliability of this model.”

SDC’s EN-XL rated Freespan Curtainsider features a fully clear side aperture and 5* Easy-Roll technology, ideal for customers who require a side loading solution. Mounted on a robotically welded chassis, the Freespan’s unique low friction alloy system allows for efficient loading with minimal driver intervention. Available as a straight or step-frame, SDC will customise the Freespan trailer to any length, with numerous combinations of door, floor, and storage options, as well as aerodynamic aids.

SDC’s aftermarket Parts division also exhibited at the CV show in Hall 5, stand 5D85, showcasing their catalogue of over 16,000 Truck and Trailer parts from axles, suspensions, ABS and air brakes to electrical components, landing legs and body parts. Supplying the leading OE brands for all vehicle makes and models, SDC’s long-established Parts division provides same-day or next-day delivery throughout the UK and Ireland, keeping operator downtime to a minimum.

Our purchasing power within the SDC Group allows us to provide highly competitive prices to our customers, with high rising costs SDC Parts can provide savings to your fleet and I would encourage Parts users attending the CV show to come along and speak to our team to see how they can save on the leading Parts brands.”
