The first six months of 2019 have been Trux’s best half year since 2008. The company that manufactures front protectors and light bars in aluminum for heavy trucks now meets the high demand through new recruits.
Trux front protection – Highway and Offroad – for heavy trucks has always been the company’s most important products and during the first six months of 2019, their sales have increased by almost 30% compared to the previous year, which also was a good year for Trux.
– We have increased our sales in the Swedish and Norwegian markets, which also are our strongest, but we have seen a positive order intake from all markets compared to 2018 says Hasse Olsson, manager at Trux in Ljusdal.
Mikael Nordin is production manager at Trux and ensures that daily operations are spinning. With the success of the front protection the demands on production increases.
– We have been at full speed for a while now and we’ll need to recruit more employees to be able to continue the high order intake. Right now, we need to recruit welders and painters, says Mikael Nordin.
