Montracon celebrates 40 years

Trailer manufacturer Montracon, which has a manufacturing facility in Mallusk, Northern Ireland is celebrating 40 years in business this year.

To mark the occasion the company held an Open Day at its Carr Hill, Doncaster plant in South Yorkshire, England.

The Open Day gave customers and suppliers a great opportunity to view the products and the factory site. With in excess of 250 people on the day, from owner drivers to blue chip logistic, hauliers and supermarkets, it certainly made for a great day.

There was a large vehicle display on the factory forecourt showing probably the largest product range offered from any European trailer manufacturer. In addition, Montracon hosted a mini trade fair, where a large number of key supply chain companies were able to showcase new and exciting products currently being offered on Montracon trailers.

Factory tours were conducted throughout the day where visitors were able to see first-hand the £4.5m investment made in Doncaster with its new shot blast and paint plant facility. Visitors also witnessed improvements the company has been making ensuring Montracon continues to improve production efficiency, maintain steady growth, along with introducing improved health and safety standards and reducing the impact on the environment.

This investment has also been driven by the need to continually re-map production flows and flexibility to match the still increasing model offering and rising demand across all Montracon’s ranges both in improving our quality and reducing lead times.
