Introducing the Maranda Sprinter Service Body

8 June 2012

In an effort to continually innovate and offer the widest range of possible solutions for its customers and the industry, Maranda is producing a Service Utility Body for the Mercedes Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter. This product is often referred to as a “Side Pack” and will be the first of its kind.

In fact, this market is not well served by existing manufacturing. This will be the first composite service utility body made for the Sprinter. Because of the lightweight materials used, the Sprinter’s payload will be opened up for more cargo, which is an issue with non-composite Sprinter bodies. Maranda has used its leadership position in composite materials and light truck body manufacturing to fill this gap in the industry. While showing the prototype at a couple of Sprinter events, customer response was instantaneous, with incoming orders from all over North America.

This innovative product will be the first of many service utility bodies manufactured for a wide variety of truck brands.
