Now, this is going to sound strange, but one of the biggest challenges we face as upfitters is getting customers to really tell us what they want.
Eventually, of course, our team can get down to the “nitty-gritty” of what our clients really need and want in their upfitted trucks and vans. We’ve been doing this a long time. What’s so interesting is that, no matter what the industry, so many of our customers really do want the same things:
Storage, workspace, good lighting, the right safety equipment.
Within specific industries, many times, the same needs arise from fleet managers in very different extremes. A mobile welder working in the bush up north has many of the same needs as a skilled tradesman in a similar field in Calgary.
So many times, though, when those customers come to us, they are almost reluctant to ask if we could put in some extra LEDs over a workstation, or a built-in air compressor. Why? The truth is, many times, these folks have become accustomed to “getting along” with what they have and they never think to ask one simple question, “what could we do?”
Well, Expertec decided to ask that same question of our own team and the results are exciting.
This month, we’re introducing our newest product – the Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body.
Here’s the deal: using the knowledge and experience of our team, we’ve taken the most popular – and useful – options the fiber optic industry needs and put them all in one unit.
That’s right, now, fleet managers and communications companies that are in charge of the nationwide shift to fiber optic technology have a true “one stop shop” for everything they need in a service body they can put to work as soon as possible.
The Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body starts with the industry leading Spacekap Diablo slip-in service body and from there, we install everything you could ever need to make splicing fiber optic cables easy, no matter where the job takes you.
Just how detailed is this package?
Well, inside the SpaceKap Diablo, we’ve built in a large workstation with a full LED lighting array to make splicing easy. Multiple storage bins and shelves are within easy reach of your technicians and, because Expertec knows that fiber optic lines can be run nearly anywhere during any season, we’ve even built in climate control features.
Even better? Because we’ve built our Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body on the SpaceKap platform, the entire unit can be moved from one full sized truck to another with minimal effort.
Now, we’ve had a lot of people ask us about that, and the simple truth is this – the Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body is designed to last longer than the trucks it’s placed on! Think about how quickly salt, traffic, and miles take their toll on a work truck. By using a slip in service body, fleet managers and even contractors can save thousands of dollars over the life of the service body with this flexibility.
Now, this solution isn’t for everybody, but truly specialized tools never are. To find out more about Expertec’s Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body, we’ve not only created a PDF for your to review, but our team is more than happy to jump on a call to help communicate what a game-changer this design is for anyone in the fiber optic field. As with any of our products and services, there is always room for further customization and tweaking, but we believe that our Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body is one of the most comprehensive “builds” you could ever ask for.
