Specialty Vehicle products have been at the core of Piedmont’s product offering for years. Recently, with the increased focus on wood-free construction in the industry, various lightweight plastic alternatives have proliferated the market - all manufactured to endure and thrive in the unique specialty vehicle environment. Piedmont Plastics’ commitment to the specialty vehicle market is evident in our extensive line of solution-based products.
As a premier plastics distributor, our market and product knowledge allow our customers to benefit from the latest quality, design, and construction techniques. We recognize that manufacturers face unique challenges achieving weight reduction while maintaining durability, form function, and aesthetic appeal. To counter these challenges, we offer numerous design solutions for specialty vehicles.
Our Material Selection
We’ve developed a unique portfolio of products specifically designed for the specialty vehicle market. Piedmont Plastics partners with specialty vehicle manufacturers, associations, engineers and designers to develop products that enhance quality and cost-effectiveness for the specialty vehicle industry. Our raw materials excel in applications including modesty panels, upholstery, enclosures, and cabinetry to name a few. Whether you are a manufacturer of emergency vehicles, food trucks, or mobile medical units, or a manufacturer of enclosed cargo trailers or modular buildings, Piedmont Plastics has a solution for your specialty vehicle.
Emergency vehicles are constantly being upgraded to be faster, more durable, fuel efficient and affordable. When performance plastics are incorporated into the design, they can help reduce weight, noise, and vibration in emergency vehicles. There are many plastic suppliers that manufacture products for ambulances and firetrucks. We also provide materials to OEM’s, which ensures you get the most effective product and correct look when purchasing from Piedmont Plastics.
We recognize that trailer manufacturers need materials that are lightweight and durable, while also creating an aesthetically appealing design. Our formulated plastic sheeting is more durable than corrugated fiberboard, but lighter in weight than wood and solid PVC sheet. PolyCor HL is lightweight, tough and abuse resistant due to its fluted ribs that support both surfaces. It's also chemical and water resistant, making it an ideal solution for headliners in trailers. With an experienced business development team that knows our customers and their products, Piedmont Plastics strives to bring you the best and most innovative products in the marketplace for trailer manufacturing.
