Manufacturing process

At RoadWest, every trailer bearing the RWT insignia undergoes a meticulous process driven by cutting-edge technology. Employing state-of-the-art equipment and manufacturing software such as AutoCAD and Solidworks 3D, we meticulously 3D model each trailer, ensuring precision and detail in every aspect.

Before construction commences, each product undergoes comprehensive 'finite element analysis', guaranteeing structural integrity and performance. Components are then CNC (computer) profile cut to exact specifications, ensuring accuracy, durability, and reliability throughout their lifespan.

Our commitment to customization is unwavering. By leveraging the latest equipment and software, we tailor-build products in various sizes and configurations to meet the unique requirements of our clientele.

RoadWest (RWT) exclusively utilizes Swedish Steel – including Hardox, Domex, and Weldox products – in critical areas where maximum strength, durability, and longevity are imperative. This, coupled with our exceptional engineering prowess, meticulous finishes, and unparalleled attention to detail, results in chassis and body combinations that are among the most coveted in the market today.
