Warner Bodies, a leading manufacturer of service bodies, crane trucks, haulers, fire/rescue trucks, brush trucks and custom vehicles is celebrating its move into a completely remodeled 240,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Elwood, Indiana. This move represents a nearly two year collaborative effort between Warner Bodies ownership, Manasek Acquisition Company (MAC), and the city of Elwood.
On Wednesday August 20, 2014, Warner Bodies will host a Grand Opening celebration with various representatives from state and local governments, business owners, customers, vendors and employees. Remarks will be given at 10:15 am by Mr. Rick Manasek, President of Warner Bodies; Mr. Craig Longstreth, Executive Vice President of Warner Bodies; Mr. Ronald Arnold, Mayor of Elwood; and Mr. Victor Smith, Secretary of Commerce, State of Indiana.
The complete redesign and reorganization of this significantly larger facility enables Warner Bodies to increase production capacity of its service bodies, add manufacturing jobs to the local work force and reposition itself in the industry as a much stronger global competitor. Warner Bodies has made significant investments in the best available equipment and technologies making this facility the newest and most modern service body manufacturing facility in the United States. In doing so, Warner Bodies has been able to improve the efficiency of work, product quality and an overall better working environment.
Warner Bodies is very proud of this new facility and the partnerships being forged in the Elwood community. In true Hoosier fashion, Warner has been warmly welcomed. A lot of time, effort and energy has gone into bringing this facility online. Warner Bodies is taking a pause to acknowledge its dedicated Hoosier workforce, vendors, city and state employees and countless contractors, electricians, plumbers and movers who have helped turn this new Warner Bodies facility into a reality.
