The commercial truck-body manufacturer will be celebrating the opening of its newest facility in mid-October, expanding both their productivity and employment opportunities for the area

Marion Body Works will celebrate the grand opening of its new manufacturing facility with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday, Oct. 21. This event will be held from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. (CST) at 105 Plank Road in Shawano, Wisconsin. 

“The opening of our new Shawano manufacturing facility is a momentous occasion worth celebrating,” said Curt Ignacio, president and CEO of Marion Body Works. “This ceremony will not only commemorate the continued success and growth of Marion’s presence in the industry, but also the emergence of new jobs in the Shawano and surrounding northeastern Wisconsin communities.” 

The new Shawano facility is Marion’s second operating plant in Wisconsin, just 22 miles east of their main headquarters. Over the past five months, the Marion Body Works team has been transitioning the commercial truck body line into the new facility. Covering 113,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space and 7,000 sq. ft. of office space, this expansion carries a goal of enhancing throughput and acting as a catalyst for continued growth of the product line. 

With over 100 years of expertise, Marion Body Works has worked diligently to develop high-quality solutions that are tested and trusted—from commercial truck bodies and custom engineer vehicles and cabs to defense and fire & emergency vehicles. With a focus on excellent workmanship and honest value, Marion Body Works is always looking for creative, passionate, and dedicated people to join their team.
