Summit Bodyworks acquired Alfred Industries and Alfred Industries – Specialty Vehicle Division in 2017, now known as Summit Bodyworks Truck & Van Bodies we look forward to carrying on Alfred’s commitment to quality and innovative design.
Our dry freight van bodies are designed to be mounted to your choice of cab chassis. These bodies are ideal for use in a plethora of applications. Including but not limited to moving and storage, commercial and residential freight delivery, oilfield, construction, SWAT, mobile decontamination,FREI or any form of large or small freight delivery. We can customize your truck body to the specific demands of your hauling needs.
Our practical and contemporary stake side and platform truck bodies allow for versatility and accessibility in any shipping situation. Focusing on durability, longevity, and safety at the forefront of all construction, we build truck bodies that can handle nearly any shipping load. All of our truck bodies are handcrafted in a specially engineered fabrication fixture to ensure precise dimensions and squareness of our platforms.
Moving & Storage
Our diverse line of moving and storage bodies is customizable and built with durability, longevity, and safety. Since the foundation of your body is critical we utilize a stronger 4” cross member vs. the standard 3”, rivet spacing is on 2” centers for added strength as well. With our in-house engineering department and design team we have the capability to create exactly what you want, regardless of the complexity of your build.
When it comes to flatbed loads, the balance between accessibility and security is often delicate. The advantages of a truck platform are undeniable, especially when forklift accessibility is key. Tarping a load is not always feasible, especially in a short-haul application. With our curtain side options, you will never again have to worry about keeping the product clean and secure.
Summit Bodyworks – Truck & Van Bodies offers a functionality and aesthetically appealing side-step body for mobile retail showrooms, offices or laboratories. A door on the curb or street-side, and interior steps leading to the platform of the body provides the easy access and movability perfect for these applications.
