About TI-TBW

TI Truck Body Works (TBW) entered the field of truck body fabrication business to build on TII’s legacy of manufacturing top-quality products, be it Precision Steel Tubes, Strips, Industrial or Automotive Chains, Car Door Frames or bicycles. TII which started with bicycle production in 1949 has become one the largest engineering product companies in India. Tube Products of India (Precision steel tubes and strips division) and TIMFPD (Automotive and Industrial chains and Metal Forming Division) which were developed as backward integration to make bicycles has now become a leader its own served segments. TBW has now set its sights on becoming the best solution provider for the truck fleet operators by providing unique value propositions like never before

TBW products have been designed by our advanced engineering team, comprising of metallurgists, mechanical and industrial design engineers, with the sole purpose to deliver value to the customer which will not only reduce the overall cost of ownership but also deliver high - quality product and hence peace of mind. TBW’s engineering team has relentlessly worked to ensure the products not only meet the stringent standards of AIS and ARAI, but also have the best utilization of effective payload by having a lower UnLaden Weight (ULW). These standards and its consistent adherence are the backbones to the quality affirmation by TBW.

Steel manipulation through designing and manufacturing of complex metal forming sections required by OEMs. Capability on Precision Manufacturing by consistently delivering 0-50 ppm - highest level quality to OEMS.

Corporate Technology Center (CTC)

Advanced design & analytical knowledge on steel being the best R&D setup for steel amongst the private sector in India.Capability to leverage the industry associations having done multiple projects with ARAI and other several prestigious institutions allows it to be at par with all the regulations and compliances.

Manufacturing Standards

TBW works continuously to improve and update the manufacturing and process capabilities to benefit the customer in the long run. All manufacturing facilities house all the machinery and the processes required for making the most reliable product for the customer. After fabrication, shot blasting is done as standard to remove scaling on the surface and to ensure long lasting paint adherence. Three coat painting method with required DFT to make the product robust enough to withstand extreme environmental conditions. TBW can also offer higher quality corrosion resistant coating for any specific requirement. Some of the standard machines across all manufacturing facilities include:

• Shearing machines

• Plasma and Gas cutters

• Overhead cranes

• Press Brakes

• Roll Forming Machines

• MIG Welding Equipment

• Flexible Product Assembly Lines & Processes

• High- Quality Shot Blasting System

• Two Coat Paint Booths

• All associated quality tools to ensure quality control at each steps

Design, Technology and Innovation

In the quest to keep moving toward engineering excellence, TII has a state-of-the-art Corporate Technology Center that allows us to stay ahead in its engineering endeavors. The center has a strong team of engineers and metallurgists who continuously work on business-driven R&D projects with a specific focus on metal forming, thermal processing and fabrication etc. TBW gains from the technology center by using the inherent knowledge and design competence to make the truck body parts in the strongest yet quickest & cost effective manner.

TBW design include:

• Efficient use of materials and manufacturing techniques – right size, right shape and right fit.

• Weight Optimization while meeting all emerging standards

• Higher strength steel and tubular structures

• Affordable and actionable design propositions

• Customizable Design algorithm for truck bodies

• Mathematical Analysis of body design for load optimization and identification of stressed members.

• TBW achieves its value oriented goals by utilizing advanced technology trends, well-built material testing facility while ensuring value for money.


TBW follows stringent quality control process right from raw material procurement to final delivery to ensure accurate dimensional and construction quality so that the designed load capacity is obtained. At the incoming stage, proper inspections are conducted to ensure the desired grade of raw material is procured. Weld penetration tests are conducted frequently to monitor the consistency of workmanship. Paint and paint process is controlled to ensure to high corrosion resistant finish.

Reliability of the product is ensured intrinsically in the design itself by appropriately testing the product to peak loads with appropriate safety factors and with multiple G-force application to simulate the harsh road conditions in India. The grade of steel used is appropriately selected to ensure the best utilization of vehicle load capacity. In addition to all above, the product and process standards are as per ARAI guidelines. TBW’s quality processes comply with IATF 16949-2016.

Raw Material Procurement

TBW has the ability to leverage the strategic long-term partnerships with leading steel manufacturers across India through its parent and other divisions of TII. As a result of these partnerships, TBW has been able to streamline supply chain procurement processes to enable lower lead times, maintain consistent quality of the materials procured and leverage economies of scale on costs. Some of our most common raw materials include:

• Automotive Quality Steel.

• Hot Rolled Steel.

• Cold Rolled Steel.

• Automotive Quality Finishing Products.
