M2 Overland: Trek R

M2 Overland’s TREK-R products were born out of a gap in the New Zealand market for high quality, cleverly manufactured ute tray and canopy systems for both commercial and recreational utility vehicles. Nick Langan, General Manager of M2 Overland explains that it is their clients who make the products special, and kiwi tradespeople who work hard during the week and are outdoor enthusiasts on weekends, who inspire M2 Overland to supply the market.

Manufacturing Excellence

Intelligent design and manufacturing are central to M2 Overland’s production model. The entire manufacturing process from design to delivery is controlled in-house, resulting in fast turnaround, enhanced quality control, and consistency in product.

M2 Overland’s Design Engineer Robert Beedell has used Autodesk Inventor software for the past 20 years and continues to utilise the software for the design and modelling of M2 Overland’s tray and canopy systems.

Product Quality

Aside from the design and manufacturing practices that enhance the quality of M2 Overland products, the M2 team has further committed to the quality of their tray and canopy systems by investing in high-precision machinery and laser cutters for their factory.

Additionally, M2 Overland’s ute tray and canopy systems are manufactured with high-quality aluminium, which helps keep the weight of products to a minimum.

“M2 Overland stands for unmatched forming consistency, 3D developed, laser cut precision, skilled kiwi welding, and expert fabrication.”

Price Builder
