Heavy Truck

Heavy Truck Parts

Heavy Truck with Composite components from MFGMFG spurred the trend of composite material conversion for the heavy truck industry in the 1960’s. Today we are one of the foremost suppliers to manufacturers of class 6, 7 and 8 heavy trucks and, with sales exceeding 40,000 units/year, the top producer of composite roof caps in North America.

By offering the full gamut of advanced materials and processes, we can support specific requirements for appearance, aerodynamics, durability and weight. Our involvement in other demanding industries augments the value we bring to truck OEM’s with material breakthroughs such as advanced fiber reinforcement and alternate resin technologies that help reduce weight. Our dedicated R&D research and testing laboratory is approved for composite processes and materials by the leading truck OEM’s.

As a longstanding partner to heavy truck manufacturers, MFG is resourced and staffed to meet your needs in the areas of quality assurance, JIT delivery and project management. Our Design Center works closely with you to achieve product designs that are fully optimized for manufacturability. Rigorous program management during design, tool building, initial part approval and production launch ensures complete synchronization with your delivery needs.

In addition to basic molded panels, we provide installation of interiors including cable and wiring, insulation, cabinets, lighting and trim panels. And, of high importance, we offer in-line sequencing – ready-to-paint assemblies delivered to your plant right on time.
