EDMONTON, Alta. — Following three years of intensive testing, Raydan Manufacturing has achieved National Safety Mark (NSM) registration with Transport Canada.
The road to registration was a long one with extensive testing performed to meet Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards/Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS/FMVSS) requirements.
“We are pleased to achieve NSM registration which represents compliance and safety for our truck manufacturers, truck dealers and end users,” stated Ray English, president and CEO of Raydan. “The benefit of achieving the NSM certification is that it permits us to make modifications to the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) to increase the truck’s payload capacity.”
Raydan Manufacturing is one of the leading NSM registered chassis modification experts. Based in Edmonton, the manufacturer develops and produces specialized suspension and coupling systems for trucks, trailers and heavy equipment, as well as a chassis modifications centre and a military service facility.
Their NSM registration is a direct result of the dedication and commitment by their team of engineers and modification experts, noted the company.
As listed on Transport Canada’s website, Raydan is registered for Final Stage – body and equipment, Intermediate Stage – GAWR/GVWR increase and Intermediate Stage – wheelbase alterations.
