What can Superior Truck Bodies offer you

We are a Cape Town based family business who are Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP, or fibreglass) truck body builders for all truck brands.


The company manufacture insulated and semi-insulated truck and trailer bodies, and also offer repair and maintenance service to all truck and trailer load bodies (including steel repairs and spray painting) in Cape Town and has a satilite branch in Johannesberg.

The company specialises in trailers for the food and beverage industries, with clients who move everything from frozen products, includi

ng ice-cream, fish, chicken as well as butchers that require specialised, reinforced bodies to hang carcasses, and fresh produce that require ambient or refrigerated temperatures. We also services the courier industry that uses dry-freight bodies to move parcels, and furniture companies.

Fibreglass has no joints and rivets therefore there are no leaks, and it is a clean and quality panel. The fibreglass is also easy to clean and repair. -Monray Mulder

We only use the best quality materials in the construction of our products.

Repairs are an extremely important support service for clients. Trucks tend to take a lot of abuse whole being loaded and unloaded, and downtime costs our clients money.

We also have a  mobile repair unit, to do on-site repairs, thereby minimising downtime for clients.
