Alcoa Delivers Aluminum Truck Bodies to SIP-WELL

Aluminum manufacturer Alcoa, Pittsburgh, Pa., said Monday that its Alcoa Auto and Truck Structures business in Hungary delivered a aluminum truck bodies to SIP-WELL, a company that delivers water coolers and water to homes and offices.

The specially designed trucks included double wide rack roll-up doors covering two bays each, a compartment for water coolers, and thin walls between the bays to make maximum use of the body length.

“With the weight savings the aluminum provides, we were able to increase payload productivity,” said Jorgen De Pelsmaeker, Director of Logistics for SIP-WELL.
