KEEPS WORKING. DAY IN. NIGHT OUT. Ensuring your business is where it should be. On the road.
AFRIT is one of the most respected and innovative trailer manufacturers in Africa. Our effective design and manufacturing processes constantly address the balance between strength, mass and durability whilst our fully equipped on-call mobile after sales service teams ensure you have support no matter where the road may take you.
And when you consider our philosophy that has been our foundation since 1968: To deliver the lightest possible trailers with uncompromising quality, you’ll never be in doubt which trailer will keep working day in. Night out.
To celebrate half a decade of serving the international trailer building community, Global Trailers Magazine scouted the globe during 2015 - 2016 to create what could be the first global OEM ranking for trailer builders in history.
Since the turn of the century, a handful of trailer manufacturing businesses actively started pursuing a globalisation strategy – some by sending a knocked down (CKD) kit abroad and assembling it locally, and some by investing into a local partnership and/or production facility.
As the largest and only OEM from Africa, AFRIT is ranked amongst the world's leading trailer manufacturers from Japan, USA, Brazil and China taking up 24th position.
The global ranking is testimony to AFRIT's commitment and continuous drive for optimization and innovation irrespective of the increasing economic pressure - an integral part of the company's success.
"We are extremely proud to be listed amongst the world's top trailer manufacturers, especially if you consider the African market compared to the US and Chinese industries", says Leon van de Wetering - Afrit Sales Director. "It is however our customers and supplier's support that enables Afrit to continue our growth and vision to become one of the most sought after trailer brands delivering quality on time - every time."
It will dump just about anything over the edge with its 2.8m abnormal wide bin that tilts at a 50.9° tipping angle and has a scaw of 40.9°. The robust chain operated tailgate ensures maximum tip opening. When the 40t hydraulic cylinder is in full force, additional support is given by bin stabilizers to prevent truck roll over. With a reinforced body structure, loading can be done quicker and in larger scoops which will save you time and trips to and from the quarry.
Side protection covers for the air-and-fuel tanks have been added to minimize damage and downtime when loading. For driver protection the bin headboard has been strengthened and extended over the truck cab to protect against falling rocks. Adding additional driver safety, tipping can now be done from inside the cab via the newly added in-cab tipping control.
AFRIT. Keeps working. Day In. Night Out.
NAMPO Harvest Day is the largest privately organized agricultural event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. A record 78 648 visitors entered the gates over a 4 day period and had the opportunity to feast their eyes on some of the country’s finest and most popular brands of equipment and machinery on offer. With more than 700 exhibitors spread over 24 hectares, all displaying multiple products and brands, the public was sure to be spoilt for choice when it came to options and decision making.
The past year has seen many changes in the economy, customer needs and market trends. It was therefore imperative that we at AFRIT listen to our customers needs, asses them and apply what they required into functional and deliverable product design changes that work practically & delivers exceptionally.
With a new stand double the size of previous years, AFRIT had the opportunity to show why we are SA’s number one choice in road transport equipment. Showcasing ten trailers which included improved models such as the T6 Tautliner, the F6 Flatdeck and the most recent S7 Side Tipper. Both local and international visitors showed interest in forming valuable partnerships and relationships with AFRIT.
The launch of the new AFRIT S7 Side Tipper is but one of a few modified and upgraded products that were on display at this year’s annual NAMPO Harvest Day in Bothaville, Free State.
