Marion Body Works is an independent, family owned and operated manufacturer located in Marion, Wisconsin, where the company was founded in 1905 and has been in continuous operation ever since. The present ownership and management dates from 1980. Operations occupy 123,000 square feet on a 61 acre site, where all buildings and machinery are owned. Employment is about 150 and our annual sales are in the $20 million range. Our business has evolved from building custom carriages for Central Wisconsin friends to building commercial truck bodies, rescue and fire apparatus, truck cabs, and specialized military/government products for accounts throughout the United States. Marion's niche is building cost competitive, engineered truck bodies that stand up through the rigors of over-the-road duty. Our specialty is building in all-aluminum; we have more experience building all-aluminum bodies (since 1964) for emergency vehicles than any other U.S. manufacturer.
