Reading Truck Group announced that it acquired substantially all of the assets of Caseco Manufacturing, Inc. and its affiliates. Caseco, a current Reading distributor, is a regional manufacturer and upfitter of service utility truck bodies and service crane bodies, with four facilities located in Oklahoma and Missouri. Caseco also operated a manufacturing plant in Claremore, Okla., where Reading will continue to produce service utility truck bodies and service crane bodies.

With the addition of Caseco, the number of Reading's distribution and upfitting sites increases to 10 facilities in eight states. It also increases Reading's chassis pool allocation and produces a wide range of logistical service and freight benefits for its customers.

"Founded in 1972, Caseco’s Master Mechanic Truck Bodies represent some of the most rugged, high quality truck bodies on the market," stated Eric McNally, Reading Equipment and Distribution’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development. "We look forward to adding these vehicles to our product lineup."
