Supreme, a Wabash National company, said it added Gruau refrigerated inserts to its upfit solutions for cargo vans.

Supreme said the Gruau insert is a complete refrigeration upfit solution that includes lightweight, low-profile modules designed for efficient climate control while retaining maximum cargo space and preserving the van’s exterior.

Gruau, a family-owned company based in Laval, France, supplies upfit and truck body parts. Supreme said its refrigerated insert system is compliant with the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act. The company said Gruau also provides pre-cooling and temperature control data with an integrated telematics system.

“We’re giving customers more choices for longer-lasting equipment with the Gruau refrigerated insert solution,” said Jerry Hughes, product manager. “We believe customers will find the Gruau system holds temperature better than foam-in-place bodies, has better durability and provides a lower total cost of operation for our customers.”

Gruau refrigerated inserts are available at Supreme Upfit Solutions and Service facilities in Texas and Georgia for customers in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
