Masterack to Reveal SmartSpace

ATLANTA, February 8, 2013 – Masterack®, a division of Leggett & Platt Commercial Vehicle Products, in continued pursuit of cutting-edge technologies, will reveal SmartSpace™, an all-new cargo management system targeted to create a revolutionary change in cargo storage that satisfies the rapidly changing needs of the industry. “We realize that the vehicle industry is changing now more than ever, and that we are in a position to provide solutions that help our customers capitalize on those changes and produce additional efficiencies and cost savings for them,” said Ross Haith, President, Masterack and FECAP Divisions for Leggett & Platt CVP. Masterack will have SmartSpace on display at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, March 6-8. The NTEA Work Truck Show is the largest work truck event in North America.

Benefits of SmartSpace

SmartSpace Cargo Management System was developed from the ground up, with the support of Masterack’s largest fleet, OEM, and distributor customers. The highly configurable storage system features stackable shelf units, designed for use in the new high-cube cargo vans coming to market within the next 18 months, which include the Ford Transit and Ram ProMaster, as well as smaller fleet vehicles such as the Ford Transit Connect and Nissan NV200. The new system is engineered with lightweight materials which provide fuel efficiency over traditional steel cargo management systems. SmartSpace is modular, giving users the ability to easily and quickly customize the system for different trades and needs, even after delivery of the vehicle. Additionally, the system satisfies Masterack’s installation partners’ desire to reduce installation time for the system. “Our customers asked for a cargo management system that would save them time, so we designed a shelving module that can be installed at 90 or 180 degrees for rear and side door access,” said Jenn Voelker, Marketing Manager. “We focused on the details, down to new drawer latches which secure drawers individually and provide quiet, rattle-free storage.”

SmartSpace will be available to Masterack customers in the fourth quarter this year.
