Reading Truck Body says it will expand its Ram chassis pool into the Columbus, Ohio market, citing a large network of Ram Commercial Truck dealers who have strong relationships with the vocational businesses
vocational truck bodies.
Reading says it has worked closely with Ram Commercial Vehicles, in what it called “a win-win for both the dealers and Reading.”
“Adding a Ram chassis pool will bring even greater support to the Ram franchise dealers and the distribution arm of our business in the Ohio market,” says Craig Bonham, vice president of sales for Reading Truck Body.
The pool will be managed by Reading at its Columbus, Ohio location. Ram delegates stringent requirements for all its authorized chassis pool upfitters. Buckeye Body and Equipment, an authorized Reading distributor maintaining the required NTEA MVP certifications, will help to coordinate upfitting.
Reading has Ram orders placed, with expected build-dates in late August when Ram begins 2015 production. Authorized distributors and dealers should watch the Chassis Pool Inventory posted on the Reading Resource Center for chassis availability. The initial order includes Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 models with a mix of configurations, including regular and crew cabs, 2WD and 4WD, and single and dual rear wheel.
