Great Dane Trailers announced it has acquired Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies, which makes insulated fiberglass refrigerated truck bodies, all-electric refrigeration solutions, and innovative truck refrigeration technology.

For Great Dane, the purchase of Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies, founded in 1932 by the Johnson Family and based in Rice Lake, Wis., is a strategic addition to the semi-trailer manufacturer's sales platform, according to the company. The move expands its product offerings in refrigerated transportation equipment to help it fully serve the food service industry.

For Johnson, the overlap with Great Dane's customer base will support and expand the truck body manufacturer's business. In addition, Johnson will have access to Great Dane's network of distribution, parts and service centers.
