Runnion Equipment Co. is growing its product line by expanding its Knapheide truck body offerings. Runnion Equipment has been utilizing Knapheide bodies for its National Crane boom trucks and Palfinger knucklebooms for many years. Now, with its recent expansion, the company has the room and capability to expand into the sales and upfitting of service/utility bodies and dump bodies, supplied by Knapheide.

 “This is an exciting opportunity for us,” said Michael Prochot, president of Runnion Equipment. “Knapheide is a first-class family owned company with an outstanding product line. Our intent when building our new facility was to give us space to stretch by utilizing the skills we have honed over the years in servicing and mounting truck-mounted cranes as a steppingstone to other upfitting markets. We are very pleased that Knapheide is giving us this opportunity to represent them as a full line dealer.”    

Knapheide Manufacturing Co. is a manufacturer of truck bodies and truck beds and provides customers with quality service utility bodies, platform bodies, gooseneck bodies, and dump bodies.

Runnion Equipment is based in Hodgkins, Ill.
