Brand FX Body Co has acquired a 178,000-square-foot manufacturing facility on 24 acres in Pocahontas IA. The company expects to begin building its line of composite service bodies and pickup truck toppers and inserts there by autumn 2004.
Once renovations are complete, the Pocahontas operation will be the largest, most automated composite service body plant in the industry, according to Brand FX. The plant's equipment will include a CNC five-axis router, CNC laser, and other new CNC metal-cutting and bending machines incorporating the latest technologies.
Based in Fort Worth TX, Brand FX designs, manufactures, and installs multipurpose composite service bodies for light- and medium-duty truck chassis; composite line bodies for medium and heavy-duty aerial applications; and composite toppers and inserts for pickup trucks.
