The Faymonville Group is the world’s leading manufacturer of exceptional trailers for both on- and off-road applications. Whether you need to transport glass panels, wind turbines, or rocket components for Cape Canaveral – the Faymonville Group can create a trailer for your application. To maximise the strength and payload of its solutions, Faymonville utilises high strength Amstrong® and Amstrong® Ultra steels from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products. And thanks to Faymonville’s decades of experience in the haulage sector, most trailers can be quickly adapted to transport different loads – increasing the return on investment for customers.

All production steps are carried out in-house

The heart of every Faymonville product is the high strength steel framework which gives the trailer its strength and rigidity. But whether it’s an on-road trailer used to transport building panels, or an off-road solution which carries the world’s largest bridge girders, safety is always a key consideration.

Guy Fickers, technical director for Faymonville, explains: “Our design and manufacturing know-how is Faymonville’s strength and we understand that safety is key. The framework of our trailers must be able to perform in challenging situations, even if it is carrying a payload weighing hundreds of tonnes. That’s why our internal standards go way beyond those of the transport industry in general.”

Experts in the exceptional

Faymonville’s on-road trailers have been used to transport some unique cargoes as Guy Fickers explains: “A few years ago we made a trailer to transport trees for the president of a central Asian country. Each tree weighed several hundred tonnes. We’ve also created a trailer which was used to transport a church. Whatever cargo you can imagine, Faymonville has probably made a trailer to move it.”
