Maranda Corp. has introduced a new line of composite service bodies with a line of 56-CA, 60-CA and 84-CA Composite Service Bodies available for pickups and cab-chassis trucks from Chevrolet, Dodge Ram, Ford and GMC.
Combined with a standard rear step bumper and tailgate, the Maranda 56-CA Composite Service Body weighs only slightly more than an OEM pickup bed and rear bumper, making them among the lightest on the market.
“We don’t introduce products unless we can add value,” Francois Boisvert, Maranda Corp.’s Vice President of Engineering, says. “More than simply building a lightweight and corrosion-free service body, we wanted to design features into the product that would leapfrog the industry technologically. The big complaints we’ve heard from service body users are security and water management. With this new line of Maranda Composite Service Bodies, these problems are solved.”
All Composite Service Bodies by Maranda are designed with a fully-integrated water management system to prevent rain and condensation from entering closed compartments, and two concealed heavy-duty steel rotary latches are standard in each compartment for enhanced security.
Fully-adjustable shelving, rear bumper and tailgate are standard for all Maranda Composite Service Bodies, and current available options include LED lighting with instant-on switches, keyless entry, custom bumpers, rolling top and transverse box.
The bodies can also be affixed with aftermarket accessories like ladder racks, liftgates and slideouts.
Maranda is currently taking orders for 56-CA, 60-CA and 84-CA Composite Service Bodies for delivery as early as late September 2013. Composite side packs for aerial trucks are also available.
