Think Of It As Refriger-Nation

With its traditionally 80 percent accurate weather forecasts, The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts that this winter will be another arctic blast with above-normal snowfall throughout much of the nation.

Roll-Off Trucks Ready to Handle Heavy Loads

 J&J Truck Bodies & TrailersJ&J Truck Equipment recently installed roll-off hoists on two trucks supplied by Hunter Keystone Peterbilt. The outside rail roll-off hoist is the most commonly used hoist in the industry and features inside controls that reduce the chance of driver injury. The trucks were also outfitted with Roll-Rite tarp systems that are engineered for the heavy-duty demands of hooklift and cable roll-offs. The patented knuckle-pivot technology allows arms to sit on top of the load, eliminating side arm interference or width restrictions.

Vocational Truck Sales Climb as Construction, Energy Grow

Recent articles in Heavy Duty Trucking  and Trailer Body Builders indicate that demand for vocational trucks continues to be pushed by oil and gas producers, road building, and municipal business. Last September, 43,3000 total Class 5-8 orders were booked, up 21% from a year ago. And, over the past twelve months, Class 5-8 net orders have totaled 540,000 units. That cumulative order volume represents the strongest 12-month period for Class 5-8 order placement since the twelve months ending November 2005.
 At J&J Truck Bodies & Trailers, we can provide our customers with the equipment to outfit their vocational trucks with a full and robust product line-up that meets the requirements of the construction and energy industries.

2015 Spring Buy Program in Full Swing!

The Momentum Continues

2014 has been everything we projected it to be and then some! We see the positive business climate and demand for truck bodies, trailers and tanks continuing to grow through 2015. With this demand, J&J has introduced the 2015 Dealer Spring Buy Program to help assure that you have production capacity when you need it this coming spring. While we are already booking orders for end users and fleets in January, February, and March, we have set aside planned capacity to support dealers bringing in their spring inventory. 

We recognize you have other choices when it comes to truck bodies and trailers. We hope that you recognize “planning” as one of the values that set us apart. While we are not perfect, the management team and workforce at J&J spends considerable time planning our work, managing our production schedule and looking forward to meet the needs of our customers. If you are engaged in planning for 2015 and concerned about long lead times from up-fitters interfering with your ability to turn inventory, call us and see if Spring Buy might be a solution.

At J&J, we are continuously looking at new or growth market segments where we can add value as a supplier and to expand our foot print in the truck equipment industry. This year we are introducing the chassis mounted J&J LPG Bobtail for the retail distribution of liquid propane gas and are now accepting orders with full rate production ramping up through the end of the 4th quarter. Additionally, we will be introducing the J&J LPG Bulk Transport Trailer in the 1st quarter of 2015. Exciting times and new opportunities as a result of America’s energy renaissance.

It is hard to believe we are in the last quarter of 2014. A year ago we began talking about the positive momentum we saw building at J&J and in our industry. I am happy to report the momentum continues to build and we are committed to doing everything in our power to continue to earn your business. It is my privilege to once again thank you for your business, wish you a happy holiday season and a prosperous 2015.
