Platform

Overview / Gallery

The demands and challenges of shipping know no bounds.  Our extensive knowledge and engineering capabilities allow us to create a platform based upon your application, wants, and 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.  Strength and sturdiness are assured by providing a knee-braced headboard and 4” cross-members.

Each of our truck bodies is built with your hauling needs in mind. Summit Bodyworks – Truck & Van Bodies fabricates all of our platforms and stake sides in our 40,000 square foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing plant.  We also offer forklift mounts on our platforms, typically installing Donkey, Moffett, Manitou, or Princeton Forklifts. Dump bodies are also available for customers who require the ability to unload commodities when the utilization of a forklift is not feasible.  A variety of floor options are also available to best suit your shipping demands.  Quality along with customization to produce your ultimate truck body is our goal.  What’s more, we stand by our platforms with a 5 year warranty.  Customers are always welcome to stop by our Henderson facility and watch our craftsmanship in progress.
