With over 170 years of shared experience between the two companies, Sörling och Ilsbo, we have developed from wagonsmiths into a modern bodywork industry, and are now one of the Nordic region’s leading builders of bodywork for trucks and trailer vehicle. Our products are mainly sold in the Nordic region and Switzerland, but we also export to other countries inside and outside Europe.
We build our products in line with three core values. The first of these is Expertise – we know that the quality and functionality of our products are key elements in our customers’ day-to-day operations, which is why we do our utmost to constantly develop and improve them. The second is Sustainability. We place great emphasis on sustainability which, for us, is just as much about quality and a long lifespan as about reducing our climate footprint by designing our rigs to be as lightweight and fuel-saving as possible. And the third is Flexibility. We customise our solutions in partnership with our customers to ensure optimum functionality.
Taken as a whole, this means that you, as a Sörling customer, can always rely on getting the right quality of equipment that is the perfect match for every transport task.
