Dennison to build new European Link trailer in Ireland

We are delighted to see our news in Commercial Motor. Thanks to them for publishing the below.

UK and Ireland trailer manufacturer Dennison made its debut at the Solutrans CV Show in Lyon, France, exhibiting its new Link 25.25m trailer.

New SAF axles and a patented Dennison design have enabled the turning circle to be reduced, compared with the B-Double trailer it previously offered. The units will be manufactured in Ireland for sale across Europe, where Dennison hopes to expand its sales reach.

Export sales manager Peter Lynch said: “It’s a proven product in Scandinavia but we have been developing the German market and Spain has really opened up for the mega trailer. We hope that by being at the show we will get a better presence in France.”

Lynch added that despite fears over Brexit making market conditions difficult, Dennison has the advantage of being able to build in Ireland for Europe. Expanding its sales reach in Europe will allow the Irish manufacturing site to continue to maintain its production level, while the UK facility can concentrate on its domestic market, a move which Lynch believes may require additional investment in the site in order to meet demand.
