The Bloodhound vehicle which is designed to break the current land speed record at 1,000mph has been in development since 2006. With bespoke engineering and innovation at the centre of SDC’s manufacturing approach, the engineering marvel will complement the range of trailers on display at SDC stand 5C110.

In the run up to this year’s CV event SDC’s Managing Director Mark Cuskeran said “The Commercial Vehicle Show is the primary event for the UK and Ireland’s road transport and logistics industry so we are delighted to be showcasing our range of products and services again this year. We will have a total of six trailers on display and our sister company FP&S Parts will also be exhibiting at stand 5C110. We are giving visitors to the SDC stand an opportunity to have a go in the driving seat of the Bloodhound Supersonic car, a thrilling piece of UK engineering.”

SDC’s ‘Fastliner’ Buckleless Curtainsider will feature alongside the Bloodhound at stand 5C110. The libner design with Eddie Stobart livery has sliding concertina aluminium planks attached to curtains running in the standard roof rail, giving a clear side aperture for easy loading. The sliding concertina system eliminates the need for side posts while providing customers with additional load security during transit. From the outside SDC’s Fastliner trailer resembles their standard curtainsider however the smart design offers increased aerodynamics, accessibility and safety functions.

Other SDC Trailers at the show include a 4.2m Hireco curtainsider, 4.6m TIP curtainsider and 4m TRL libner curtainsider which will be in the outside exhibition area. A 4.8m Owen’s curtainsider will be on display at Palletforce stand 4F100, as well as SDC’s hospitality trailer at stand 5C110.

SDC’s sister company FP&S Truck and Trailer Parts, a leading supplier of OE and aftermarket parts will also be exhibiting at the Commercial Vehicle show stand 5C110. With a comprehensive product portfolio ranging from axles, suspensions, ABS and air brakes to electrical components, landing legs and body parts, FP&S offer the ‘one stop shop’ for replacement parts and consumables. With a National UK network of 21 branches and 80 delivery vehicles, FP&S ensure that operator downtime is kept to a minimum.

The CV show opens on Tuesday 14th April in Halls 3a, 4 and 5 at the NEC in Birmingham and expects to draw 19,000 visitors over three days, giving commercial vehicle operators the opportunity to meet with industry suppliers.
