M2 Overland

Product: Trek-R Ute Tray and Canopy Systems

By: M2 Overland 

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.

The M2 Overland team employs Autodesk Inventor as their predominant CAD modelling software. Inventor assists the team to design modularly with pick-up points on canopies and trays, meaning parts are standardised and can be easily retrofitted to existing systems. Through its ability to assign serial numbers, Inventor also enables M2 Overland to effectively trace product and parts. For clients, this means replacements or new parts are delivered quickly and fitted easily.

Autodesk Vault manages M2 Overland’s CAD and engineering data and enables the team to perform robust change management and revision control.

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

 

While smart design and manufacturing workflows assist M2 Overland to streamline production, a price builder on the M2 website enhances the customer experience by allowing clients to visualise and customise tray and canopy options.

Accessories and add-ons can be viewed on a client’s particular ute model through the price builder and quote instantly produced. Nick explains that there are hundreds of combinations available for the ute and canopy systems, depending on a customer’s individual requirements.
