QVSF uses SSAB’s Hardox 450 in the production of trailer and semi-trailer tipper bodies, thereby providing high strength bodies at reduced body weight. Hardox 450 is an abrasion-resistant steel that provides good bendability and weldability with an option for guaranteed impact toughness, which is ideal for the longevity of the tipper bodies’ operational life. Hardox 450 has also helped reduced downtime, thereby increasing fleet efficiency and increasing reliability.
Qatarian Vehicles Structure Factory works towards the achievement of customers’ requirements and needs by presenting quality products conforming to Qatari standards.
It also works towards upgrading the quality level of its products through continues improvement, to satisfy its customers and SSAB’s Hardox has played an important role in helping QVSF deliver high quality, reliable and safe vehicles to the regional market.
As a key SSAB partner since 2012, QVSF was recently selected to join the Hardox In My Body brand program to enhance the relationship between the organizations through joint marketing, technical support and customized trainings. The membership also gives QVSF a quality certification from SSAB reflecting the trust and deep level of partnership, which further guarantees to the end user that the manufactured tipper body is made of genuine Hardox high strength steel. SSAB also extends priority technical support towards customers who are part of these elite programmes.
