Mats Elvenger, a Swedish citizen, emigrated to the USA to stir up the commercial vehicle industry there. His company COPANCO specialises in the development, production and distribution of light vehicle bodies.

COPANCO's range is unique and revolutionary for the US market in the field of lightweight vehicles. The vehicle bodies are made of light but very strong CORAPAN® sandwich panels and special aluminium profiles. In this way, the weight can be reduced by approx. 50% compared to bodies currently available on the US market. The weight saved is available to the vehicle owner as additional loading capacity.

Not only the vehicle body, but also the production logistics are innovative. Today, the vehicle is sent to the production site of the vehicle body for the superstructure. At COPANCO, it works the other way round. The body is sent to the vehicle dealer and assembled there. Because vehicle bodies are easier to ship than vehicles, there are savings in transportation costs.

At this year's Work Truck Show (NTEA) in Indianapolis, COPAN Co. received a lot of attention and enthusiastic feedback. COPANCO is ready to shake up the US commercial vehicle market. Coratec AG is proud to be part of the success story by supplying the sandwich panels.

COPANCO is the official and exclusive distributor for Coratec's products in the USA.
