Morgan Truck Body, LLC, recently opened a new 175,000 sq.-ft. manufacturing facility in Plainfield, Conn.
According to the company, Morgan’s new Connecticut facility is capable of supporting production of over 3,000 dry freight and refrigerated (reefer) truck bodies annually and is expected to employ approximately 140 team members. The manufacturing facility is Morgan’s 13th in the US and Canada and there are plans to add a 14th in the Midwest in the near future.
“Morgan continues to set revenue records, so the need to increase capacity, as well as locate production closer to our customers, is an important part of improving customer service,” said Norb Markert, Morgan’s president and COO. “We’re excited for the opportunity and the value this plant will offer our New England-area customers.”
The new manufacturing facility is located at 85 Moosup Pond Rd. in Plainfield, Conn., approximately one hour east of Hartford.
