M.H. EBY, a third generation national manufacturer of agricultural and commercial truck bodies and trailers founded in 1938 has announced the introduction of an all-aluminum service body.
The new body will be unveiled at the Work Truck Show held in Indianapolis March 6-8, 2019.
“This represents a huge opportunity for our company to firmly entrench itself in the service body industry with a product that we believe is unrivaled,” said Charlie Horton, VP of EBY Truck Bodies Sales & Marketing. “This innovation has been years in the works and a result of listening to our customers who have yearned for detailed advancements and refinements in engineering. This body delivers on that – and then some,” he added.
The service body will be the 7th commercially available product added to the EBY repertoire that also includes it’s “Big Country” flatbed towing body, Edge, Flex and Pro Landscaping Bodies, a generation purpose dump, and the “Powerhouse” platform stake body. The company also manufactures numerous custom work truck solutions.
The service body features many enhancements that have traditionally been overlooked in the industry. “As we designed this, we constantly put ourselves in the position of the end user,” stated John Howley, Chief Engineer of EBY Truck Bodies. “The meticulous details – from hidden stainless adjustable hinges and side doors that are flush with fender panels – to an above standard industry grade tailgate and finishing with our exclusive LED lights and a TouchTronics™ keyless entry system makes this body the complete package,” he added.
“Our sales team is excited to bring EBY’s legendary quality to the service body market in this highly engineered and extremely refined body,” said Lucas Meador, Regional Sales Manager. “Customers have been asking for this product for a long time.”
The new service body will be manufactured at EBY’s state of the art new manufacturing facility in Ephrata, PA and available for distributor, fleet, and commercial partners in addition to EBY’s distributor network.
