FRUEHAUF : Our values

Fruehauf, leader on the French market

FRUEHAUF is the leader on the French trailer and semitrailer market and one of the brands most recognised internationally.

Its operational activities are based in Auxerre (France) where it employs more than 600 people.

It manufactures and markets a wide range of semitrailers:

  • Dry Freight, CURTAINSIDERS, VANS, CONTAINER CHASSIS and PLATFORMS, for all of which it is number one in France with a market share of around 35%
  • As well as steel or aluminium TIPPERS for PUBLIC WORKS and LARGE VOLUMES intended for food products, chemicals or recycling

It also offers a comprehensive range of CENTRE-AXLE TRAILERS, a market in which it has become essential with a market share of 60% for curtainsider trailers as a result of the trust customers place in it and all the specialist partner coachbuilders.

4 strategic priorities

Four major strategic priorities ensure FRUEHAUF’s success and reputation and set it apart from the competition :

The “Designed to last” concept

The needs of transport companies have changed considerably in recent years with a revived need for sturdiness, without premature wear and above all no risk of equipment downtime. With vehicles operating full time, downtime is extremely costly.
FRUEHAUF has always designed and manufactured equipment that is recognised by the market for its sturdiness and perfect for intensive, harsh applications with mechanically welded beds, decks designed to withstand high loads and reinforced bodywork.
As a result, with ownership times more than 10 years longer and fewer opportunities to buy second-hand vehicles in Western Europe, investment in FRUEHAUF “Designed to last” vehicles gives customers a competitive edge.
