ARBOC Specialty Vehicles and Specialty Vehicles of Henderson, Nev., have teamed together to produce and provide low-floor purpose built trolleys in the U.S. This new Trolley will be manufactured on the Freightliner XBA low-floor, rear-engine diesel chassis. This chassis was designed by ARBOC and is built by Freightliner exclusively for ARBOC.

Without manufacturer modification to the chassis, a full ARBOC body and Freightliner chassis warranty will be available for this type of unit.

Completion of the first trolley is slated for early 2017, with manufacturing taking place at the 115,000 square foot ARBOC factory in Middlebury, Ind. As the exclusive distributor, all domestic and international sales for the low-floor trolley will go through Specialty Vehiclein Henderson, Nev.

“For years Specialty Vehicles has wanted to add a low floor trolley to our line of vehicles; we’ve really seen an increase in need for this type of trolley in the industry.” said Nancy Munoz, founder/CEO of Specialty Vehicles.
