Marion Body Works, a national manufacturer of commercial truck bodies, fire & emergency apparatus, custom cabs, custom engineered vehicles, and defense bodies, celebrated the shipment of its 15,000th cab.
The milestone truck cab was crafted for longtime customer, Spartan Motors. The event took place on August 16, 2023 in Marion, Wisconsin. All Marion employees involved in the product line as well as team members from Spartan Motors were in attendance.
“The shipment of our 15,000th cab means a lot to Marion, and we’re excited to celebrate the team’s hard work and commitment to driving greatness,” said Kevin Ignacio, president of Marion Body Works. “This event will be the perfect time to applaud how far we’ve come and gear up for a successful future, with our valued customer, Spartan, at our side.”
The milestone cab for Spartan will be a tanker truck.
Hitting Truck Cab Building Milestones
Since 1996, Marion has been building cabs for manufacturers like Spartan, making this milestone certainly one to mark — but it’s the next milestone of many.
In 2014, Marion Body Works delivered its 10,000th cab to the very same customer, Spartan. This collaboration between a local, family-owned manufacturer and a publicly traded power player is the kind of strong alliance Marion Body Works aims to foster with customers in various industries, according to the company. These relationships make it possible for the company to continue to give back to the community and create jobs for talented individuals in Northeastern Wisconsin.
Over the past 100-plus years, Marion Body Works has been dedicated to developing honest, high-quality solutions that are tested and trusted by companies of every size, locally and nationally.
"Marion’s team is honored to continue this tradition of excellence with the delivery of its 15,000th cab and looks forward to a bright future with many more successful projects and partnerships ahead," according to a company statement.
