Kansas City, Missouri, October 31, 2018 –Today, Load King LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Custom Truck One Source (Custom Truck), announced the launch of its new Voyager® Series, a vocational collection of high-performance mechanics bodies designed to serve an array of heavy equipment industries. Within the new Voyager® Series, Load King will offer three primary models. The Voyager® I mechanics body is an Under-CDL model. The Voyager® II mechanics body is a CDL model. Finally, the Voyager® P is a propane service body, built specifically for propane marketers.
About the Voyager Mechanics Body Series
All models within the Voyager® Series are expected to surpass the competition in payload capacity and quality, while maintaining a competitive price point. The Voyager® I and Voyager® II mechanics bodies both feature a state-of-the-art modular control system. The system has a pushbutton control panel and an LCD diagnostic monitor. These units also feature CTECH drawer sets, a custom-designed cab guard, an industry-leading compartment and bed storage, supreme corrosion protection through Load King’s full lining coverage and chrome-plated handles, and unmatched visibility and lighting. Both Voyager® I and Voyager® II are available with optional rail gear. The Voyager® P propane service body will feature a tri-axis sensor to stay level with ease. It will also have a rumber bed floor and a removable pipe vice attachment and aluminum side rails.
Product Development at Custom Truck
The launch of the Voyager® Series marks the latest addition to Load King’s recent vocational collection, which were introduced alongside several new and enhanced trailer lines in 2017. To recap 2017’s product development, in February, Load King released the Premier Roofing Conveyor. This unit features a fiberglass design, ergonomic controls, 360 continuous rotation, and belt speeds up to 60 ft. per minute. In September 2017, we subsequently released the square and semi-elliptical dump bodies constructed of high-tensile steel at ICUEE. And in January, the epoxy-lined water tanks made of 3/16 steel. All Load King vocational bodies are designed for best-in-class performance and durability. They come in a wide range of sizes, configurations, and other distinguishable options.
According to Fred Ross, chief executive officer for Custom Truck, “We brought several lines in-house in order to meet the needs of our customers. The vocational collection paired well with Load King’s iconic trailer portfolio and strong reputation for quality manufacturing.”
“Since joining Custom Truck in 2015, we’ve deliberately expanded Load King’s product offering outside of trailers. We want to further position the company as the only single-source equipment provider in the industry. By leveraging Custom Truck’s leadership in the vocational realm and its proximity to operators, and merging Load King’s manufacturing expertise and innovative design, we are consequently able to efficiently penetrate and influence the equipment markets, with superior offerings,” added Ben Link, executive vice president of Production and Supply Chain for Load King.
