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."
