CIMC returns with a new and improved curtainsider range

CIMC Vehicle Australia provides Australian transport businesses with quality engineered trailers, fitted with locally sourced parts and accessories – some of which is supplied by Air Brake Corporation. The prominent trailer builder has also reaffirmed its commitment to rolling out curtainsiders for a variety of applications.

CIMC Vehicle Australia is focused on delivering quality craftsmanship that is based on local demands but also offers the most competitive pricing in the trailer market. As a result, CIMC equipment is trusted by many well-known transport fleets and independent carriers Australia wide which is why it is upscaling its curtainsider production following positive feedback from operators large and small.

Focusing on standard specifications, the flat deck and drop deck B-double curtainsider has a long list of features that are standard, which many other manufactures would list as options.

The flat deck range of curtainsiders include gates (with provision to hang), gate carrier, spare tyre carriers, forklift rated floors, provision for tow coupling, rear doors on B trailer and raise/lower valve. The drop decks range has an even longer list of standard features. These include hanging gates, mezz decks, provision for mezz in gooseneck, toolboxes, spare tyre carrier, Electronic Braking System (EBS) units to suit road trains and provision for tow coupling.

Also, CIMC offers nationwide aftersales support for its trailers and after sales support from OEM suppliers. The trailer builder proudly supports local suppliers, sourcing various trailer parts from local businesses such as Air Brake Corporation (ABC). ABC is one of CIMC’s leading suppliers and is also Australia’s foremost distributor of ADR38 engineered braking systems, WABCO braking systems and other braking components. ABC has developed the most comprehensive range of ADR38-approved trailer brake kits available, covering standard pneumatic load proportioning systems, antilock (ABS), and the latest multivolt ‘brake by wire’ electronic systems (TEBS).

Keeping to a standard specification allows CIMC to expedite deliveries and put them in a position to have stock available for immediate delivery.

Queensland Sales Manager, Ashley Hayes, says the brand is in a great position due to its customers’ responses. “We have received positive feedback from customers regarding CIMC manufacturing curtainsiders. We are receiving many enquiries from both returning CIMC customers and business who are new to the CIMC brand, and the response has been overwhelming.”

ABC also supports this endeavour through the supply of semi-trailer brake kits.

“Our commitment to CIMC, does not stop at just supplying a standard brake kit but developing kits to suit CIMC’s requirements,” says ABC National Sales Manager, Brendan Dullard.

“Every trailer type has a unique parts list. ABC works closely with the engineering, purchasing and workshop team at CIMC to make sure the exact components required for the trailer type are supplied as a kit.

“ABC started talking to CIMC regarding their requirements some four years ago. Since then we have seen the magnificent job that Sven Liao and his team have done improving the quality of their trailers and increasing awareness of the CIMC brand. Experience shows that this only happens if the product does what it is sold to do.”
CIMC specialises in manufacture of flat deck and drop deck curtainsiders, flat tops, skeletal and refrigerated trailers as well as aluminium fuel tankers by Marshall Lethlean.
