Medium-duty truck body manufacturer Morgan Corporation has announced plans to expand its manufacturing footprint in the Midwest.

The company is actively searching for a site in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, or Michigan to select a location capable of supporting production of up to 3,000 truck bodies annually. Morgan plans to open the facility and become operational in 2017.

The facility will have a footprint of around 160,000 square feet and Morgan expects to employ approximately 175 team members.

“With a total of 12 facilities in the U.S. and Canada, we know that Morgan’s proximity to its customers is an important part of improving customer service,” said Norb Markert, president and COO of Morgan. “Our decision to operate a plant in the Midwest will enable Morgan to better meet the needs of its customers and to more aggressively compete in this strategic region.”

Morgan produces truck and van bodies in North America specializing in Class 3 to Class 7 box truck/straight truck bodies for the dry freight and refrigerated industries.  For more information, click here.
