Upfitter Adrian Steel has announced a line of new products developed for the 2015 Ford Transit that will roll out when the full-size vans start hitting the market in June, a company spokesman told AutomotiveFleet.com.

Adrian Steel, a Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM), showed off the new products at the NAFA Institute and Expo last week. The upfitter opened a Kansas City operation near the Ford Transit assembly plant that will be up and running in June, said Todd Goldmeyer, the company's marketing manager.

"The storage solutions that our customers have depended on for the existing vehicles will be available for the new ones, plus some additional storage products," Goldmeyer said. "When the vehicles hit the market, our products will be ready."

Several of the products offered will be all new; others are updated versions of existing products that have been reformatted to fit the Transit.

All-new partitions are compatible with new Transit safety features such as the side-curtain airbags. Two new drop-down ladder racks, the LoadsRite and EZ Load, help fleet drivers lower a ladder without reaching to the top of the van.

Adrian Steel's shelving units and compartmental accessories such as aluminum floor drawers, locking units, removable bins, and interior ladder storage have been redesigned to fit the Transit.

    I see Adrian Steel is still in the dark ages using steel versus polymer components for their van partitions. Once a steel guy always a steel guy!
    Our ABS partition saves over 100 lbs in weight compared to a steel one. Fuel economy anyone?
