About Reading Truck

Home / About Us


It starts by designing truck bodies with innovative features so you can work smarter and safer. Next, we use American craftsmanship to build durable bodies you can count on year after year. A leading manufacturer and distributor who has been designing and building work truck bodies for more than 65 years, you can also depend on us for expert installation and upfitting, and all the parts, equipment, accessories and services you need to get the job done.

Our products are available through our extensive national network of distribution partners, or through any of our 26 Reading Truck center locations, where you’ll find everything you need to outfit a single truck or an entire fleet.

In 2015, Reading Truck was acquired by JB Poindexter & Co (JBPCO), a privately-held portfolio of businesses that provide innovative services for commercial trucks, specialty vehicles, upfit and accessory, and manufacturing industries. JBPCO’s strong portfolio positions them as a leader across the industrial, commercial and manufacturing industries. Learn more about JB Poindexter & Co at
