The Challenge

Brooks Stevens and Thermo King have a long history of successful partnerships in product development. The recently unveiled Precedent, a temperature control system for trailers, is the latest of many successful collaborations.

Refrigerated transportation providers have come to expect cutting edge ideas; our design delivers unparalleled internal access and integrated position lighting to Thermo King's Precedent

The Solution

The Precedent goes beyond expectations with aesthetics designed to look fresh in 10 years. We also integrated the visual brand language into the exterior styling, graphics and interface. The housings were developed with a focus on our HMI (Human-Machine-Interface) design. Our team also provided engineering and design improvements based on our research at their manufacturing plant in Puerto Rico. The 13-piece exterior skins incorporate assembly efficiency and safety. With research, design, engineering and prototyping by Brooks Stevens the Precedent is an unprecedented success.
