Anyone in the trades knows the importance of the right tools.  While it might be possible to weld metal with a couple car batteries and some jumper cables, it’s surely not a good idea.  Likewise, a fellow with a good multimeter might be able to rewire an entire house, but again, the right tools make the job faster, easier, and far more enjoyable.

Expertec has long been a fan of “the right tools for the job” in all we do.  Outfitting and upfitting trucks and vans for the trades and fleet use has always been our main focus and today, we’re only continuing that trend.

This year, we introduced the first in what will become a long list of purposefully designed slip-in service bodies, the Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body.  We covered this introduction earlier and so far, the reception among the experts – the fleet managers and skilled tradesmen in the fiber optic industry has been overwhelming.

Because, unlike so many companies that base their entire business plan on an assumption, we went and asked the folks who were doing the jobs what they needed to be more efficient … and they told us.

Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Service Body“Make it big enough to store all my tools and supplies out of the way… and off the floor!”


“Can you build in some extra-bright lighting?  Splicing is tough enough as it is, but it’s impossible to do in bad light.”


“I’m so sick of being cold when I’m on a job in the winter.”

“I HATE not having any headroom in the van to do the job and without a clean, uncluttered place to splice, it’s useless to even try.”


If you name the challenge you’ve faced trying to create a functional and effective workstation for doing fiber optic work, we’ve overcome it with our Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body.  Based on the SpaceKap Diablo slip in service body, we’ve built in exactly what the specialists told us they needed to do the job, and as a result, we’ve created a long-term solution for fleets and contractors in the fiber optic field.

Yes, we said “long-term.”

The beauty of this slip-in service body is that it can be moved between conventional pickup truck beds with a minimum of effort.  This effectively allows fleet managers or contractors to field a fully upfitted, perfectly designed fiber optic splicing station without the added expense of either fully upfitting a van for the task or needing to buy a brand new pickup for the fleet.  It is that adaptable.

In the end, the Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body is simply the easiest and fastest way to put a new, fully (and perfectly) outfitted vehicle in your fleet for a far smaller investment than any other option found today … and that investment will continue to pay you and your business dividends in terms of efficiency and ease of use far into the future.  We’ve built everything needed into this package while leaving some room for further customization to make sure our customers are the first in the field.

The Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Body from Expertec represents months of research into what the experts need and our purpose-built solution for them.  Not only is it perfectly designed, it’s also incredibly easy to put to work.
