Million Dollar Quantum Truck Tool Box Drawings Found

The original designs of the Quantum Aerodynamic Toolbox have recently been found thanks to a remodeling project in the Pensacola, FL manufacturing facility.

The long-lost concept drawings are responsible for millions of units sold over the past 12 years. The Quantum is well known for being one of the most secure, stylish, and unique boxes on the market.

“We found these old drawings from when the Quantum box was being designed and thought it would be cool to show off…” says Materials Manager Orion Newman. “My first thought was we need to scan these and save them digitally!”

Even though the Quantum has been around for over 12 years, it’s still the only one of it’s kind on the market, with no other truck tool box like it. If you are looking for a stylish and aerodynamic box that matches the trim on your truck really well, and that is super-secure and rarely needs replacement parts, we suggest the Quantum ATB.

The Quantum box is exclusively available from Better Built. The patented aerodynamic design adds style and complements today’s trucks. The sleek polymer trim can be painted to match the trim on any truck. This box has many of the same features as the Special Edition Crown series such as an automotive grade hidden rotary latch for more security and a full-lid brace for greater durability.

“Our history means a lot to us here at Better Built, and this is the perfect opportunity to preserve our roots while emphasizing the unique qualities of our product.”
