Hobur Twente

Our history starts in the nineteen sixties, designing and building road tankers for dangerous goods, focussing on liquefied gases such as LPG's, DME, carbon dioxide, LNG, ammonia and similar substances.

With own facilities for design, production and testing we are able to deliver a complete and optimized package complying with international guidelines such as ADR, IMDG, MID and various pressure vessel codes.

As a CIMC company we are part of a global network supplying the gas industry.


Our road tankers for liquefied gases are tailor made to serve your requirements best. Because we design and fabricate ourselves we are able to fully integrate major components.

Whether you require a generic or a specific solution for the transport of liquefied gases, we optimize the design by using state of the art materials and proven designs to maximize payload, reliability and safety.

We make our design work best for you, no matter if it needs to be a truck, trailer, semi trailer or a swap body for bulk or fully equipped distribution.
