Business Developments During 2020:
The Company executed seventeen (17) orders for refrigerated bodies from renowned companies in Nigeria during the first half of the year and delivered refrigerated bodies of length ranging from 1.5 meters to 7.0 meters. The company built refrigerated bodies on Toyota Hilux pickups – single cab and double cab, on Isuzu and Hyundai trucks as well as the longer Tata and VW Worker trucks.
The refrigerated bodies built by IMI for its customers were highly appreciated for their aesthetics, good finish and robustness. The company also kept its commitment by giving timely delivery of the refrigerated bodies built by it.
Integrated Motors Industries fixed both Thermo King and Guchen Thermo cooling units on the refrigerated bodies built by it depending on the customer’s budget and preference. Whilst the Guchen F300 proved popular for the smaller refrigerated bodies built for Pickups, the Thermo King V-series and T-series were widely used for customers ordering refrigerated bodies in the mid and large segment trucks.
During this period IMI’s suppliers, Thermo King Asia, upgraded all the models of the Thermo King T-series independent engine refrigeration units with new and more advanced technical features. The new model numbers are T-680Pro, T-780Pro, T-880Pro, T-980Pro, T-1080Pro and T-1180Pro.
Upgradation of the T-series models will help our customers to achieve more benefits from the Thermo King units, which is already a world leader in its own right. Specific advantages of the new models are:
- Lower life cycle cost
- Low fuel consumption
- More engine life
- Quiet operation & reduced emissions
- Reduced maintenance
- Easy to use & service
Inspite of the challenges faced by IMI during this difficult period of the pandemic, the company rose one level higher and delivered to the expectations of the customers.
The company looks forward to a bright and successful second half of the year.
