RoadWest Transport recently celebrated the ten year anniversary since it began using SSAB’s world-leading high strength steel in the manufacture of its trucks.
SSAB and RoadWest began collaborating in 2006, and a decade later trucks such as RoadWest’s SteelLite tipper — which is built using SSAB’s Hardox wear plate — still lead the market for their superior quality, reliability and performance.
RoadWest SteelLite is the only tipper vehicle in this market that is made using Hardox steel.
Trailers and trucks manufactured by RoadWest are put through rigorous applications and the company is always looking for the right material that will increase their product lifespan.
With SSAB Hardox steel, it is able to deliver superior wear resistance that translates into higher productivity, longer service life and reduced maintenance cost.
First developed in 1974, Hardox is a highly wear-resistant steel that helps to reduce weight and extend the service life of a wide range of steel applications, even under the harshest conditions.
Hardox in My Body is a trademark sign used on products from manufacturers certified by SSAB and guarantees that the product is made with genuine Hardox wear plate.
“While some products may look the same on the surface, only those using SSAB steel can offer the safety, reliability and long-lasting operation guaranteed by our certified Hardox In My Body member — RoadWest.” Mark McClure — Area Sales Manager, SSAB.
