SPECIALIST VEHICLE DIVISION
With the introduction of Type Approval to the heavy commercial side of the industry in 2015, our sister company SB Components saw an opportunity to design and manufacture a unique range of products that were type approved and custom built for our customers' daily transport operational requirements.
In order to deliver this, in 2015 they opened up a nine bay, purpose built specialist division that offered additional capacity and a safer environment.
From bespoke heavy duty rear of cab diesel and locker modules to 80 and 150 tonne fifth wheel installations, wheelbase extensions and reductions and specialist conversions such as front and rear tow pin assemblies and crane installations, this specialist division can be the total vehicle solution and one-stop shop that you are looking for.
With the installations being so complex and unique to each individual operator, SB Components knows the importance of a strong relationship with the customer. It is what sets them apart from other manufacturers.
From initial quote, to design, to engineering and the completed installation, you will have a designated experienced account manager and design engineer to guide you through the process. They will offer you options and solutions, but at the same time listen to what you require. SB Components appreciate the time and cost of these conversions, which is why it’s important to them that the service you experience is of the very highest standard and gives you a finished vehicle that adds both profitabilities but most importantly safety to your business.
So, if it’s a rear of cab fuel tank you require due to lack of chassis space, a full chassis catwalk to increase safety for your driver, or additional toolboxes to store your equipment away and keep it safe, you can trust that in dealing with SB Components, we will create the solution that fits the vehicle spec and model.
With heavy haulage commercial vehicles, one of the key components is the fifth wheel, so SB Components offer a full range of fully approved fifth wheels. They know that flexibility from your fifth wheel is important so whether you require a fixed, sliding or double oscillating, SB Components will ensure you have the most reliable and durable solutions to cover your specific needs, ranging from a harder wearing 44 tonne cast coupler through to a heavy duty 150 tonne sliding fifth wheel complete with heavy duty sub frames and rear run up ramps.
To complement the product range, as well as decrease transport costs and lead times, SB Components also offer a whole range of electrical components that add to your drivers' comfort. For instance, in-cab TVs, fridges and microwaves, complete with inverters and air conditioning units. How about increasing the security and safety of the vehicle by fitting fully approved camera systems, warning alarms, light bars, flashing beacons/strobes, or additional working lights? The final piece in the jigsaw is our paint shop and sign writing facilities that really do offer you a total vehicle solution that you are looking for.
Because all of the products that SB Components manufacture and fit are EC approved, if the vehicle is built without its own base approval certificate, SB Components offer the service of taking the vehicle for its Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA), ensuring it passes strict Type Approval guidelines.
Whatever your requirements, SB Components can offer a tailored engineering solution that is covered by our standard two years warranty for parts and labour and all under strict Type Approval guidelines. They focus on your requirements, so you can focus on your business.
