Krone has opened a new trailer factory in Tire, Turkey, about 60 miles southeast of Izmir, that will produce about 2,000 units this year.
In addition to Turkey, Krone’s target markets from this strategically important location are the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa.
Since August 2012, the factory has been under the control of Riza Akgün, Managing Director of Krone Doğuş Treyler A.Ş..
Production in Tire has so far focused on the Profi and Mega Liner series, with sliding curtains and side boards. The Profi Liner is also available as a box body with side boards at heights of 550 and 750 mm. At a height of 750 mm, 5 steel side boards on each side are also available as an alternative to 4 aluminium side boards.
The open box body bulkhead is available in heights of 1,200 mm, 1,600 mm or 2,000 mm. The rear wall can be modified with a flap or a door and is adapted to the height of the side walls.
All customer requirements are also catered for in the side board version: Integrated collision protection prevents damage to the side boards when loading and unloading from the sides.
The Multi Lock exterior frame provides excellent load securing and lashing straps with securing hooks can be used even when the side boards are closed.
