Time Manufacturing, parent company of aerial lift manufacturer Versalift, has acquired composite line and service body manufacturer BrandFX. Paired with Versalift, the acquisition of BrandFX will expand and enhance both companies’ ability to deliver lightweight and durable aerial lifts, digger derricks, cable placers, and service bodies.

“With this acquisition, we are better able to serve our customers with the most available units and to expand upon our offering of smarter-designed utility fleets,” said Curt Howell, Time Manufacturing CEO, in a statement. ““BrandFX and Versalift have worked together for over 25 years. Together, our engineering teams have built the best equipment available for any price. As part of the Time Manufacturing family, we will extend the resources needed to help grow BrandFX internationally, just as we have done with Versalift.”

With the acquisition of BrandFX, Versalift will integrate its supply chain, bringing faster manufacturing and the ability to shorten delivery times. 

BrandFX has grown to become the largest manufacturer of advanced composite service bodies, line bodies, toppers, and other fiberglass components for specialty equipment in the world. Among its many fleet customers, the company has earned its reputation for manufacturing bodies that often outlive their chassis. Now known as “BrandFX, a Time Manufacturing Company,” the company will continue its normal operations serving all of its fleet customers in telecommunications, electric utility, sign and light, forestry, municipal and other service body applications.
