Thermoformed Alpine Sled
The Customer’s Challenge:
When it came time for our customer to upgrade their sled chassis, they turned to Universal Plastics for assistance. Their business was in decline, revenues curtailed by mounting liability insurance costs.
Universal Plastics’ Solution:
We improved their thermoformed chassis by upgrading the material to indestructible TPO in a bright yellow color, which greatly improved the durability and appearance over the earlier generation thermoformed HDPE sled. It also reduced the product weight for improved performance.
The End Result:
Combined with improved speed controls and a superior track, this innovative sled has revolutionized the alpine sled business by lowering costs and creating an alternative revenue stream for the customer. Since our product was introduced, there have been no reported accidents.
