Morgan Truck Body announced Thursday it will unveil multiple custom concept bodies in 2022 as it celebrates its 70th year in operation.
Morgan will debut two advanced concept bodies during an exclusive preview at NTEA Work Truck Week in March, with an emphasis on weight reduction and integration of enhanced safety and sensing technology. Additional technology and innovation concepts will be unveiled at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in May 2022.
“Our EV concept bodies are the culmination of extensive collaboration with technology partners and chassis OEMs to achieve the most versatile and technologically advanced solutions for our customers,” says Dan DesRochers, president and COO, Morgan Truck Body. “With 14 manufacturing locations, eight company-owned service facilities, and a network of more than 200 Morgan-Authorized Repair Centers throughout the U.S. and Canada, Morgan is well positioned to service our customers when and where they need support.
“In addition, we are doubling down on our commitment to electrification with the creation of a dedicated Innovation Lab within our Technical Center in Morgantown, Penn.”
Throughout its anniversary, Morgan also will celebrate 70 years of growth from its modest beginnings to its present-day position as the leading producer of light- and medium-duty truck and van bodies in North America.
“Morgan Truck Body celebrates its 70th anniversary with a legacy of manufacturing excellence and product leadership,” says John B. Poindexter, CEO and chairman, JB Poindexter & Co, Morgan’s parent company. “As the market evolves, Morgan will continue to lead the industry with customer-centric innovations and technologies as the preferred provider of commercial truck solutions in an increasingly electrified future.”
