The manufacturing process of a THEAULT truck encompasses three main stages which are: assembly, painting and then finishing.
Around these three essential points also revolve various annexed industrial workshops allowing to create the parts and sub-assemblies composing the THEAULT trucks.
THE MAIN PRODUCTION LINE
The foundation of every single THEAULT truck starts with a platform cab chassis! It is on this first modification station that the assembly teams begin by dismantling the entire cabin. Each part of the vehicle is stored on a unique and identified workbench to ensure quality monitoring throughout the manufacturing process. After dismantling, a rotproof polyester floor is then fitted, which will support the entire aluminum structure of the vehicle.
Thanks to a wide choice of exterior paint colors, the customisation of the vehicle body is almost endless: neutral or colourful, matte or gloss, glittery or iridescent, there is something for everyone… The only limit is your imagination!
Following 5 weeks of production process, the vehicle arrives in the last workshop where a team is in charge of the finishing touches. The truck will, at this stage, be equipped with standard fittings or options elected by the customer.
+ After the truck successfully completes each and every single stage, extensive quality controls are performed to inspect the integrity of the truck and ensure all aspects adhere to the THEAULT quality scale.
An essential workshop, this centre prepares all the parts and structures used to build the THEAULT trucks. Thanks to the latest generation welding robot, it is here that the bulkheads separating the horse part from the cabin, are manufactured which ensures the integrity of passengers and horses in the event of a major impact.
Carpentry is one of the artisanal skills preserved at THEAULT. Woodworking is intended for fitting out the cabins of our light vehicles and for the luxurious apartments of our horsetrucks with livng. This workshop also cuts foams designed for the THEAULT openings: doors, gates or even ramps.
The outfitting of the upholstery completes the panel of the many crafts performed in-house. A profession in its own right, the meticulous work of the upholstery and leather allows the design of a quality product down to the smallest detail. Lovers of beautiful things will have a wide selection of leather, alcantara, imitation leather or even cork to design the interior of your vehicle as you wish.
The last step in the vehicle’s design: the artwork! In addition to painting, an artwork specialist fits the visuals from a panel of options from the simplest to the most original. The decoration can also be adjusted to your request with a logo or the photos of your choice.
