Capital City HO with HighwayMAX trailer on the American roads
The Belgian trailer manufacturer Faymonville is taking on a new challenge in North America. It is part of the company’s DNA to tackle such undertakings with determination and motivation.
“We want to be the market leader here. The task involves bringing our concepts to this new market area. Fortunately, they are perfectly suited to the requirements of the North American transport sector”, declares an enthusiastic Paul Hönen, leader of this ambitious project. The “American Dream” is very real for Faymonville.
Capital City HO is one of the first companies that gets recently a new HighwayMAX trailer from Faymonville. HighwayMAX is an extendable on-road heavy haul trailer with nine hydraulically steered pendular axles and a technical payload of 260,000 lbs. It is compatible with the regulations in the USA and Canada, allowing a maximum payload due to its adapted dimensions.
“With its pendular axles and torsion stiff frame, the HighwayMAX is unique in North America” says Paul Hönen while emphasising the pioneering role of Faymonville with this trailer. The extremely high demand for this new commodity in the USA and Canada highlights its innovative character. Nine-axle heavy haul Faymonville trailers are being used from Massachusetts to Ohio all the way to Wyoming.
Faymonville succeeded in shaking up the transport sector in North America. This is due to the sophisticated technology and practical user-oriented developments, which is the manufacturer’s trademark. “Customers appreciate the unparalleled quality of workmanship. Our products also have improved properties with regard to handling and technology”, which is the positive feedback about the ‘newcomer’ from Belgium that Paul Hönen receives on a daily basis.
