Moving the Future


The rich history of Knapen Trailers

Knapen Trailers was founded in 1984 under the management of Piet Knapen. In the years that followed, Knapen Trailers evolved into the European market leader in the field of moving floor trailers.

Knapen Trailers launched many unique concepts as the first of their kind onto the market, including impressive inventions such as the well-known self-supporting construction design, Europe's first moving floor trailer with side doors, the EXTREME for heavy waste and scrap and many more.  Knapen enjoys a rich history perfectly encapsulated in the slogan "no guts, no glory".
