KNAPHEIDE DEVELOPS SERVICE BODIES FOR HALF-TON & COMPACT TRUCKS

May 1st, 2015

The Knapheide Manufacturing Company, the nation's leading provider of commercial vehicle solutions, announces the release of EC Series Service Bodies.  EC Service Bodies feature an optimized understructure for superior strength to weight ratio and possess many of the same tried and true standard features customers have come to expect in Knapheide Service Bodies.  Knapheide received a high volumne of positive feedback when customers got a sneak peek of the EC Series Service Body at the 2015 Work Truck Show, held in Indianapolis, IN at the Indiana Convention Center.        

"Customers have become very payload sensitive but still want the durability of steel," said Tony Marshall, Product Manager at Knapheide. "The combination of a half-ton or compact pickup with an EC Series Service Body give the owner/operator more than enough applicable payload.  The OEM approved bed delete option on half-ton and compact trucks has opened up a whole new segment for truck body manufacturers and upfitters."

Traditionally confined to utilizing only cross or side mounted toolboxes or toppers, half-ton and compact truck owners now have the ability to transition into a dedicated service body which promotes forced organization to drive increased efficiency and productivity.  Loaded with innovative standard features like automotive-quality rotary latches, stainless steel continuous hinges, and E-Coat prime paint protection, the EC Series Service Bodies are built to provide years of dependable service for owner/operators.

EC Series Service Bodies are available through Knapheide's extensive North American distribution network. Visit the EC Series Service Bodies product page for more information or submit the form below and we'll get in touch with you.
