Box Bodies


Bevan Group offers the ultimate in the construction of box bodies, with captive extrusions to minimise wind resistance and give a cleaner and aesthetically pleasing design.

The design incorporates the latest technology in bonding and dramatically reduced the number of external fixings required. This gives cleaner lines and ensures any livery fitted gives the best possible impact to the public.

We tailor make each vehicle to suit your individual requirements, with our highly experienced technical engineers exploring every option to ensure your box bodies are built for maximum efficiency in operation. We are market leaders in innovation and use the latest, high quality materials to offer an intelligent vehicle design that has longevity and is easy to operate.

With lengths ranging from 3m to 10m, our GRP box bodies are designed for vehicles from 3.5 to 32 tonnes gvw, and are suitable for any axle configuration.

While GRP is used in the main for its robustness and longevity, ultra lightweight panels or aluminium construction can also be offered where payloads are critical. Foam core lightweight panels offer considerable payload benefits with little additional cost, whilst also being robust and easy to repair if necessary.


In terms of build quality Bevan bodies represent a huge step forward for us. They also look fantastic on the road, which is important given our company’s design-led ethos.
