Proven quality: Humbaur is a certified modification partner of the PSA Group

The modifications carried out by the Gersthofen-based trailer and vehicle body specialist stand out thanks to their quality. Something that vehicle manufacturers agree with. Humbaur's many certifications confirm it – and now the company is delighted to have been awarded certified status by the PSA Group. The awards ceremony was very special.

Reflecting about what you do and how you do it is a vital factor in any company's success. That's why Humbaur arranges for its processes and prod-ucts to undergo regular and stringent external audits. So far, it has always passed with flying colours. And rightly so. Many well-known brands already know that the Gersthofen-based company is a name that can be trusted. Now the PSA Group has rewarded Humbaur's outstanding efforts by award-ing it the status of certified modification partner in January 2020.

Certification without a hitch

The certification process itself is far from a walk in the park. The Engineering & Development, Production, Quality Control and After Sales Departments were all scrutinised in the minutest of detail. Checks were also carried out to ensure that Humbaur complies with every last letter of the PSA body construction guidelines. The result? A pass with flying colours.

In the words of Managing Director Ulrich Humbaur, "I'm delighted that we succeeded in gaining certified modification partner status, since it proves that the PSA Group trusts us and our products. As a manufacturing company, our aim is always to provide our customers with the best possible service, and to increase our market share by offering innovative and high-quality products."

And it's not only the Gersthofen-based specialists that benefit from PSA's decision to make Humbaur a certified modification partner. It's also good news for customers, since when they purchase a Humbaur FlexBox they can be sure that they're buying a high-quality branded product. Ideally cus-tomised to every vehicle and installed to the highest possible standards. Certification means that the PSA warranty on the base vehicle remains fully in place.

The certificate was handed over at the PSA Group's headquarters during an LCV event in Paris. Markus Wiedemann, Head of Sales for Box Bodies at Humbaur, was delighted with the award and very much enjoyed the celebrations.

Reliability in 3 series – FlexBox Dry, Cool and Freeze

The Dry series is ideal for dry freight. Do you need to keep it cool? The box bodies in the Cool series are ideal for fresh produce. The Freeze series is the perfect choice if you need a reliable option for transporting frozen goods.
