With the completion of a $2 million plant expansion, Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies in Rice Lake WI will be positioned to better handle the growth of its core business: manufacturing truck bodies.
Additionally, with the development of a paint facility, Johnson has launched a new Repair and Refurbish Center. This portion of the business will handle high-volume painting and refurbishing of trucks/trailers and oversize vehicles.
Highlights of the $2 million expansion include:
Streamlining new production and support operations into more of a flow line configuration.
Addition of an express line for high-volume repetitive models.
A stand-alone custom paint center with three downdraft paint booths to handle equipment up to 40-plus feet long.
A consolidated materials distribution center for receiving and allocating with more accuracy, security, and control.
A steam and high-pressure power washing bay.
A final inspection station for detailing and programming for accurate customer pick-up and delivery.
