A Bit About Us – Commercial Vehicle Bodybuilders

September 5, 2015

Established in May 2009, commercial vehicle bodybuilders CPD Bodies has grown through hard work, determination, excellent product and via the building and nurturing of strong customer relationships. Based in the Tees Valley area of Stockton, we have a workforce of 72 which continues to grow alongside a high retention rate. Over the last twelve months we have manufactured 2,000 commercial vehicle bodies, a number set to increase to 3,500 in 2016. To accommodate demands we are looking to have a strong team of 100 by the end of this year and feel proud that we are able to offer careers on Teesside. Not only does this help our local economy it gives something back and boosts morale.

As a well vested bodybuilder in the north east all of our vehicles are built on site and include the following:

Tipping Bodies: With standard and bespoke options available we design and create the build for you and your industry. Vehicles are built from high tensile steel, underfloor tipping gear, double skinned doors and tailgate and covered by a three year warranty.

The Lightweight Luton: A fairly new addition here at CPD, the vehicle is built with lightweight materials making it a mere quarter of the weight without compromising payloads. If anything, greater payloads can be managed.

Bespoke Cages: Offering market leading payloads we work close with our suppliers across UK and Europe in order to provide our customers with a bespoke option suitable for them and their business needs. Features include dropwells, an emergency stop button, fall arrest system, LED beacons and more. For something bespoke we will speak to you in the first instance to discuss your needs. Custom choices include tree surgeon bodies, insulated bodies, the installation and servicing of cranes and grabs and tail lifts, built in toolboxes, removal of seats and 24 hour breakdown cover on all hydraulics.

Customers come from far and wide and the reason they trust us is due to the reputation we have built up over our six years of trading within the commercial vehicle bodybuilding industry.
