If you’re a log trucker with Alucar’s superstructure on your truck, you’ll know the importance of high quality to your business. Alucar’s brightest goal in designing superstructures is to make them such outstanding that they actually earn the transport company money. How is that possible?
“Our aluminium superstructure is designed to be so light and durable that it allows for heavier loads of timber and reduces the need for maintenance. To ensure that the time the truck stands idle is as short as possible, we also deliver spare parts quickly and have made the installation easy,” Alucar’s Managing Director Anssi Alasaari says.
Alucar always offers the fitting out of trucks as a comprehensive solution that includes everything from design to manufacture and from electrical installation to programming. Logging trucks are always individually tailored for each customer using standardised components. That’s why the company’s business activities are often based on personal customer relationships and partnership.
“We work out the best individual solutions for each customer. We always strive to make our products extremely durable and practical. Considering the hard working conditions logging trucks have to face, these are highly valued characteristics,” Alasaari points out.
In the global transportation market, legislation is becoming standardised and smaller companies often end up in the hands of large operators. The Finnish Alucar, however, is faring well in its own specialised field. In over 30 years, the company has reached the pinnacle of current expertise and product design. Its persevering work has borne fruit: Alucar has become the world leader in superstructures for timber trucks.
“We fit out more than 300 trucks a year and deliver our products to more than 30 countries.
Some of the trucks are equipped at our factory and exported superstructures are sent as modules. Our products and processes are so well developed and advanced that we can deliver finished components directly also to larger truck manufacturers,” Alasaari says.
