Transit buses, coaches, trucks, school buses and recreational vehicles are designed for long-term operation. Composites products have a lower weight compared with same products made with metal. They help to make the vehicle lighter therefore reduce fuel consumption as well as operational & maintenance costs. Moreover, they are easy to clean, resist to deformation, harsh chemical and road conditions. 

Shekonic Group Ltd has more than 13 years successful experiences of supplying FRP composites parts to North America's leading manufacturing companies. Nowadays Shekonic Composites focuses on R&D, manufacturing and quality control of composites for complex structures, panels and other components. Our expertise in composites design and manufacturing empower more freedom to vehicle designers. The cost efficiency and versatility of our products are the superior features over traditional metal products.

When you see huge equipment and machinery on construction sites, you probably assume you’re looking at a whole lot of steel on wheels. And you’d be right. But equipment manufacturers such as Caterpillar and John Deere are transitioning many applications to composites and saving money. Shekonic Composites has the ability to help construction machinery manufacturers to meet current market requirements, customers are driving the demand for performance and low cost. 

One of the best ways to reduce costs is to decrease weight for heavy duty machinery, composites are very good low cost alternative materials. Besides, every pound the machinery reduce is a pound it can carry. And most of heavy machineries have counterbalances for lifting, if they save a pound on the front, they do not have to add a pound on the back.

The adoption of composites in construction and mining equipment has increased steadily, driven by greater focus on increasing fuel efficiency and load capacities. That is where Shekonic Composites can help large equipment manufacturers.

Machineries in the agricultural and forestry market are subject to harsh environmental conditions and must withstand significant abuse. Also, reducing weight became a goal for agricultural and forestry equipment engineers and manufacturers. Less weight leads to better fuel efficiency, lower operating costs, and better weight dispersion. Weight reduction has been the driving factor for the replacement of heavy materials, like steel and cast iron. Using FRP composite for agriculture and forestry has several long-term benefits for customers, including longevity of equipment and faster payback on investment due to increased performance and uptime.

Shekonic Composites has the ability to offer one stop solution including concept design, prototyping, testing, and parts manufacturing of different composites components in agricultural and forestry industry for equipment and vehicles manufacturers.

With the development of composites, composites products bring esthetics, durability, weight advantages and often economy to residential and commercial building elements. Molded-in color and textures eliminate chipping and peeling over time, and products are naturally stain and heat resistant. We provide proven FRP composite formulations with high gloss finish, stain-resistance and UV stability. There is almost no limit to size and shape, from large moldings such as shower walls and bath tubs to small items like RV sinks. With our leading mold design and manufacturing ability we can support client in designing an approach for their unique price and delivery targets.
