Morgan Canada Corporation Announces Acquisition of Multivans
Morgan Truck Body, LLC and its subsidiary, Morgan Canada Corporation (together North America’s largest manufacturers of light-duty and medium-duty truck bodies), announces its acquisition of Multivans, Inc. located in Bolton, Ontario. Multivans will continue to operate as a separate entity as Morgan–Multivans Canada Corporation and a seamless transition is expected.
“Our company continues to solidify our position as the market leader in the truck body industry. We have achieved strong organic growth over the past five years and are continuously evaluating acquisitions to better serve our customers,” stated Norb Markert, President and COO of Morgan.
Multivans is the largest truck body manufacturer in Canada. Markert added, “This new addition to our team further increases our market share and capacity to fuel our growth. This is an exciting time for our company. We are pleased to have Multivans join the Morgan family.”
As the leader in Final Mile transportation solutions for over 65 years, Morgan recently began production in its 12th manufacturing facility (Plainfield, CT) and previously announced plans to open an additional plant in the Midwest within the next several months.
