The Making of the ZaiTruck

Do you love trucks? What about outer space? The future? If you are a fan of all three then you have a lot in common with Zailab founder and CEO Nour Addine Ayyoub. But unlike ordinary mortals, Nour Addine took his passion to the next level by instructing his in-house industrial design team to construct a fully-functional futuristic space vehicle like no one had ever seen before.

The result is the ZaiTruck, a marvel of design and engineering that encompasses Zailab’s maverick spirit. The company mascot has accompanied the team everywhere and appeared at all our major events and expos. After all, what better way to start a rewarding conversation than a space vehicle straight out of 2001: A Space Odyssey?

The ZaiTruck is built atop a solid MAN KAT 6×6 chassis and weighs an impressive 18-tons. The durability of this impressive machine is a testament to the skills of Zailab’s industrial design team who constructed each and every component themselves. To date, it has driven across Africa from Cape Town to Cairo, caused exclamations in Belgium and embarked on an epic road trip across America.

What’s even more impressive about this feat is that most of the journey was undertaken by Nour Addine himself behind the wheel.
