Shyft Group Launches Tennessee Operations

The new operation will serve truck dealers, distributors and fleet customers in surrounding states.

The Shyft Group, Inc., specialty vehicle manufacturing, assembly, and upfit for the commercial, retail, and service specialty vehicle markets, announced a new service body operation in Lebanon, Tennessee, just east of Nashville. The new operation will serve truck dealers, distributors and fleet customers in surrounding states, including new chassis pools for expanded dealer sales and support, the company says.

The new, purpose-built 70,000-square-foot facility will serve as a sales branch as well as operations for upfit, mounting, fabrication, undercoat and paint services to Shyft’s service body and accessory brands including Royal Truck Body, DuraMag, Magnum and police car upfit and light accessories from Strobes-R-Us.

“Outstanding synergies from our two service body brands located on opposite coasts along with accessory brands that provide truck headache racks and lighting packages have resulted in strong sales growth,” said Daryl Adams, president and CEO, The Shyft Group. “Bringing them together to provide a one-stop work truck solution in the Nashville market, one of the fastest-growing U.S. economies in a state that reaches 50 percent of the country’s population within a 650-mile radius, will only further accelerate that growth.”
