With their robust build and ability to handle every driving condition possible pick-up trucks are a popular choice among UK fishermen.

Also much sought after fashion accessories and ideal family cars when not in business use, there is no end to their versatility. They are immensely popular among fishermen who use them not only to accommodate their hobby – storing their tackle, but also their family life.

It’s a growing trend which has been picked up by online auto accessories retailer Proppa – the UK’s sole distributor of market-leading Sammitr SMM hard tops.

Adam Weaver, founder and managing director of Proppa, was so impressed with the quality of Sammitr’s range he struck an exclusive deal to retail their hard tops and related accessories.

It’s a business decision which has gone down well with Adam’s customers who rely on the hard tops for total security of their wood materials and equipment.

Sammitr SMM hard topSammitr is the only producer in the world which makes steel canopies for pick-up trucks. They are produced from metal sheet coated with a 0.8 mm thick, anti-rust treatment, and use a similar paint technology to that employed within the vehicle assembly industry. Like pick-up trucks themselves, the canopies are known for their strength, safety and elegance as well as their low weight, durability and environmental friendliness.

Proppa can provide these innovative and high-quality hard tops for a range of vehicle manufacturers including Ford, Isuzu, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Toyota. They are also available in a range of colours.

Adam said: “The SMM canopy is unique in its construction as it is manufactured from galvanised steel, just like a car body. This means that the SMM hard top is stronger than a fibreglass canopy and the hardtop rear door is very strong as the glass is bonded to a metal frame.

“But the quality of the SMM range doesn’t stop there. They all come complete with central locking, making them not only the most well-made hard top on the market, but also one of the easiest to lock securely.

“I would only recommend using a trusted retailer for hard tops – Sammitr is the best.”

Launched in 2006 Proppa has grown to become the UK’s leading online vehicle accessories retailer.

At the age of just 26 Adam Weaver started the business as a one-man band operating from home. The business quickly grew and today he employs a 25-strong workforce which operates out of a 25,000 sq ft warehouse in Pershore, Worcestershire.
