The Hardox In My Body is a trademark sign used only on premium products from manufacturers certified by SSAB.

GF (M) Engineering has met the very strict quality guidelines and demands set out by SSAB. The program is strictly limited to companies with a proven track record of excellence in fabrication that have shown that their production quality, welding and design meet SSAB's defined standards. After passing the quality guidelines and demands, GF has been approved as a licensed Hardox® In My Body Member.

Established in 1986, GF is one of the leading tipper trailer manufacturers specializing in the manufacturing of heavy transport equipment including semi-trailer, tanker, tipper/ dumper truck.

After using Hardox® 450 grade in its equipment for the first time, the vehicle's bodies became lighter and last longer. Tippers made of Hardox® steel offer the strongest bodies and are able to handle the heaviest and toughest loads while still being able to keep their excellent shape.

The combination of hardness and toughness is what makes Hardox® outstanding. It is extremely resistant to wear and its structural properties allow it to perform as a load -- carrying part in many applications. A stronger and lighter truck also allows for fewer hauls, more fuel savings and reduced emissions. Since 2015, GF has been using Hardox® in their tipper trailers and they have never looked back.
