Runnion Equipment Company is growing its product line by expanding its Knapheide body offerings. Runnion Equipment has been utilizing Knapheide bodies for their National Crane boom trucks and Palfinger knucklebooms for many years. Now, with their recent expansion, they have the room and capability to expand into the sales and upfitting of service/utility bodies and dump bodies – as supplied by Knapheide.
“This is an exciting opportunity for us. Knapheide is a first-class family owned company with an outstanding product line. Our intent when building our new facility was to give us space to stretch by utilizing the skills we have honed over the years in servicing and mounting truck mounted cranes as a stepping stone to other upfitting markets. We are very pleased that Knapheide is giving us this opportunity to represent them as a full line dealer," said Michael Prochot, president of Runnion Equipment.
Runnion Equipment started in 1975 with the purpose of selling, servicing, and renting truck-mounted cranes. Today, under the guidance of Patrick Runnion and his management team, the company’s primary market includes Northern Illinois, Northwest Indiana and Southern Wisconsin.
Knapheide Manufacturing Company is a North American manufacturer of truck bodies and truck beds, providing customers with service/utility bodies, platform bodies, gooseneck bodies, and dump bodies.
