We design and manufacture next-generation truck bodies using advanced materials such as composites combined with light-weight structural design of aluminium and steel. We are passionate, young and innovative, as well as continuously learn and apply new techniques to perform as much of the engineering, analysis, and design.
MIKROLETTE’s truck body is a high-performance truck body for temperature-controlled transport and for dry freight transport.

Our truck body is designed to meet individual requirements, which fits all well-known truck manufacturers' chassis, i.e. TOYOTA, HINO, MITSUBISHI, ISUZU, DAIHATSU, SUZUKI and many more.
Environmentally Friendly due to Lightweight Structure Design
Stronger Lighter Smarter
As the truck moves, it consumes energy. The heavier the truck is, the more energy it needs to get moving. Heavier vehicles have greater inertia and greater rolling resistance, which both contribute to increased fuel consumption.
To illustrate the impact weight has on the environment, imagine any kind of truck through its lifetime (25 years). Every litre saved in its operational daily transport results in saving the environment from enormous amounts of pollutants for 25 years and results in saving operational costs
MIKROLETTE composite sandwich structure is mathematically optimized by minimizing mass for a given structural and thermal loadings, aiming for high stiffness and strength-to-weight ratios in Engineering terms. Therefore, our box weight is superior than traditional steel box structure with injected or sprayed PU foam. This makes our product environmentally friendly.
Sandwich construction is also used extensively in both the aerospace and marine industries because of its extreme lightweight structural approach
MIKROLETTE composite sandwich structures exploit not only the lightweight characteristic, but it also exhibits a temperature-controlled benefit due to its core thermal insulation.
MIKROLETTE sandwich panel consists of 2 facesheets made out of High Performance Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GFRP). Our GFRP is anti-corrosion, lightweight, high temperature resistance, easy to clean and repair as well as high strength and impact toughness
The core of sandwich structure is Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) which is a closed-cell insulation. In terms of thermal characteristics, the closed-cell structures make XPS superior than the open-cell Polyurethane Foam (PU). XPS has the characteristic of high impact resistance and 30 % higher compressive strength than with PU-foam
For refrigerated truck bodies, it is very important to have low water absorption characteristic; embedded in XPS material properties. Consequently, higher R-value (Insulating Power) will be retained over time.
