In an effort to streamline and centralize its production, BrandFX, manufacturer of composite bodies for service and line trucks, announced its production move to Pocahontas, Iowa.
The company says the move is designed to help optimize manufacturing operations and efficiencies for its composite bodies. The plant in Pocahontas, Iowa, currently handles 35 percent of BrandFX’s total production and is receiving a facilities investment in excess of $1.5 million. This infusion will accommodate the increase in production.
Additionally, BrandFX says the Pocahontas plant is home to many of the company’s most senior composite production experts.
“The move reflects our continued dedication to a better production process and to faster turn-around times for our customers. A good portion of operations will remain in our Fort Worth Headquarters. This includes Engineering, Administration, Sales, Research and Development, and Installation,” says Gary Heisterkamp, president of BrandFX.
