RICE LAKE, WI -- Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies, based here, has been purchased by Great Dane Trailers. Johnson is a leading manufacturer of insulated fiberglass vocational truck bodies and all-electric refrigeration systems; Great Dane produces a variety of dry van, refrigerated and platform trailers.

Great Dane noted that the acquisition is a strategic addition to its sales platform. By expanding its product offerings in refrigerated transportation equipment, the company reinforces its commitment as a market leader to providing comprehensive service to its foodservice industry customers.

Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies, established in 1932, also widens its scope. Its market overlaps Great Dane's, and it gains access to the Great Dane network of distribution, parts and service centers.

Great Dane Trailers runs manufacturing plants strategically located throughout the United States, and has distribution points across North and South America. The company sells and services its products through company-owned branches as well as independent full-line and parts- only dealers. It has division offices in Savannah, GA, and Chicago.

Johnson manufactures custom fiberglass refrigerated truck bodies and trailers ranging from 8 ft. to 36 ft. in length; electrical refrigeration systems, such as ElectriMax and RouteMax; and traditional cold-plate equipment including eutectic plates and blowers. Its markets include vending, dairy, meat, frozen food, keg beer, live poultry, flowers and plants, and ice. It is online at johnsontruckbodies.com.
