The Knapheide Manufacturing Company is now producing EC Series Service Bodies, featuring an optimized understructure for superior strength-to-weight ratio.

Knapheide received a high volume of positive feedback when customers got a sneak peek of the EC Series Service Body at the 2015 Work Truck Show.

“Customers have become very payload sensitive but still want the durability of steel,” said Tony Marshall, Product Manager for Knapheide.  “The combination of a half-ton or compact pickup with an EC Series Service Body gives the owner/operator more than enough applicable payload.  The OEM-approved bed delete option on half-ton and compact trucks has opened up a whole new segment for truck body manufacturers and upfitters.” 

Traditionally confined to utilizing only cross- or side-mounted toolboxes or toppers, half-ton and compact truck owners now have the ability to transition into a dedicated service body which promotes forced organization to drive efficiency and productivity. Loaded with innovative standard features like automotive-quality rotary latches, stainless steel continuous hinges, and E-Coat prime paint protection, the EC Series Service Bodies are built to provide years of dependable service for owner/operators.

EC Series Service Bodies are available through Knapheide’s extensive North American distribution network.  For more information on the EC Series Service Bodies and other great Knapheide products, please visit www.knapheide.com
