About Reading Truck Body

Reading Truck Group was established in 1955, introducing the service/utility truck body concept to the construction industry. From our headquarters in Reading, PA, we have grown into one of the leading and largest truck equipment manufacturers in the United States. Reading uses quality materials and precision manufacturing processes, including our revolutionary and environmentally friendly bare metal zinc phosphate bath that preps the body for E-coat primer and powder coat finish systems, which provide a long-lasting, durable finish. With a number of company-owned upfit locations and a network of authorized distributors across North America, we are able to bring products to the market cost effectively while still offering local service.

All of our products are proudly 100 percent made in the USA using premium materials and advanced manufacturing techniques. You simply won’t find a better body—or a better partner—anywhere.

An award-winning and innovative manufacturer of truck equipment, service trucks and truck bodies, The Reading Truck Group consists of Reading Truck Body, the manufacturing arm of the business, and Reading Truck Equipment, our company-owned distribution and upfit business.
