Truck Body Manufacturing

We’ve seen a lot of changes in truck body manufacturing over the past 30 years. The trucks in use today are bigger, stronger and built better than ever before. As industry demand has grown, so has the demand for SMS Equipment to provide our customers with truck bodies that are built for larger payloads, greater efficiency, and for longer life cycles. We have manufactured and assembled rock, iron ore, oil sands, and coal bodies ranging from 120 ton to 400 ton payload and we’re ready for whatever the future might bring.

One thing we’re very proud of over the past 30 years is how proficient we’ve become at mastering the sensitive balance of duty cycle and payload. Having fabricated well over 500 truck bodies starting with high-grade abrasion resistant plate steel, our customers recognize SMS Equipment’s expertise and not only purchase SMS Equipment fabricated replacement truck bodies, but also pursue SMS Equipment to remanufacture, and manufacture, their other branded bodies.

When you come to SMS Equipment for your custom truck body, you’ll be receiving:

  • Local support by SMS qualified and experienced personnel
