Truck body manufacturer Morgan Corp. has opened a new facility to help speed orders for customers in the U.S. Northwest and Western Canada. The facility, in Portland, OR, brings to 12 the number of manufacturing, parts and service centers the company operates nationwide.

“For the first time, Morgan customers throughout the U.S. Northwest Region and Western Canada will have faster access to quality Morgan products, and with the added benefit of lower shipping costs,” said Norb Markert, president.

The facility is located on 5 acres of land and incorporates approximately 50,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing, distribution, and administrative space. It will produce Morgan dry freight products but will also include other product lines in the near future.

“This new facility expands Morgan Corp.’s planned growth into a strategic part of North America, where Morgan products and services are much in demand, and where that demand is anticipated to grow,” Markert said.
