The need for comfort is what attracts many of our customers to us. They expect—and rightfully so—always to feel at home on the road and never to worry about running out of drinking water or going without electricity and heating.
Details matter, and our expedition vehicles certainly have an abundance of well designed, reliable details.
Still, sometimes emergency stops or unexpected hitches are unavoidable. But here at Krug Expedition, our goal is to manufacture technically superior and extremely reliable vehicles, vehicles that are made from the soundest and most dependable components from the world’s leading manufacturers. Most importantly, we assemble our vehicles using technologies and expertise that guarantee the functioning of these components in a single, comprehensive, and fine-tuned system.
We use only the best-quality parts and materials for the greatest dependability in the harshest and most unpredictable conditions.
The design begins at a computer desk—multiple computer desks, in fact. It is only after each part has been optimally positioned in a virtual representation of the module on the computer screen, and each cable has been laid out in the best way possible, that it gets our approval and moves on to the next stage—the actual implementation of the project. By the time project goes into production, the team knows exactly how to implement it. This saves us—and our clients—a great deal of time and cost.
Our R&D department is the single largest team in the company. Each of its members has a tremendous amount of experience in the automotive industry and in yacht building. At Krug Expedition, their expertise is combined and focused on building the best world-travel vehicles. This expertise is also what makes us extremely flexible when it comes to providing custom-tailored solutions for our clients.
In special cases, we augment our own expertise with that of specialists from outside our company, seeking professional collaboration from other industry experts. Typical for Krug Expedition, we settle for nothing less than perfection.
We masterfully combine esthetics and functionality, and see no contradiction between the two. Instead, we focus on function, never losing sight of form and attention to details. Our in-house specialists create cozy, home-like living areas that offer the long-term traveler the feeling of repose and fulfill his dreams of the best possible trip. To do this, we utilize only the best materials and treat them with an almost forgotten degree of superior craftsmanship. We rely exclusively on the best suppliers, and our quality-control guarantees the highest level of production.
Carrying out virtually the entire production cycle in shop greatly simplifies the implementation of a comprehensive quality assurance protocol. It fully encompasses the entire manufacturing process—from the production of sandwich panels to all the metalwork and eventually a complete vehicle.
Finely tuned and well-planned manufacturing processes guarantee the perfect marriage of high efficiency and cost effectiveness. Safety, predictability, and reliability on a long journey is paramount for both Krug Expedition and our clients.
We construct our modules from sandwich panels with a thickness of 60 mm, which we manufacture ourselves. We also assemble them in-house making sure that every module adheres to our requirements. Here are a few features, that make our modules stand out:
1 - External laminate
Specially designed laminate for the outer layers of our sandwich panels is made from multiple plies of high-density cross-woven fiberglass impregnated with an epoxy resin. It has much greater strength and impact resistance than standard laminates used by other manufacturers.
2 - Tempered Glass Windows
High-quality windows are a key component, setting apart an expedition grade vehicle from the rest. Using standard RV-class acrylic panes for this class of vehicle is out of the question. Such windows are prone to scratching and do not meet the thermal insulation requirements for harsh climates.
Krug Expeditiondesigns and manufactures its windows using insulated glass units made by the Swiss company Glas Trösch, which are suitable for use at high altitudes.We have optimized the window design and adapted it for off-road use.
3 - Subframe
Module subframe is attached to the chassis with flexible connections. This solution allows for the torsion of the chassis frame increasing off- road performance, yet keeping the module stable.
