DuraMag® Truck Bodies and Van Bodies will be attending the 2017 NTEA Work Truck Show on March 14-17 in Indianapolis, IN. The event will be held at the Indiana Convention Center. Admission to the show is free, along with attendance for one educational session. Registration is currently open.
DuraMag entered the aluminum truck bodies and van bodies industries in 2009, after driving the change from steel to aluminum in the recreational trailer industry. Our team is dedicated to delivering a product that perfectly fits your business’s needs; a truck or van body that is hard working, but also presents your company with a professional, polished look. With company trucks being a rolling billboard, a good image has become essential as the marketplace becomes more competitive. We build the bodies that save you money AND make you look good. Our goal at DuraMag is to create an efficient manufacturing process that allows us to provide superior aluminum truck and van bodies at pricing that’s competitive with steel.
The Work Truck Show 2017 is produced by NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry. According to The Work Truck Show website, this event "gives anyone who buys, uses, manages or maintains commercial trucks and equipment the opportunity to see all the latest product developments on a 500,000-square-foot exhibit floor and learn from industry leaders in an extensive educational conference." More than 500 companies and organizations will be exhibiting at this year’s event, including truck and van body manufacturers, vocational truck companies, vehicle accessory businesses and more. The NTEA staff will be available during the four-day event to answer technical and regulatory questions for attendees.
Along with an impressive lineup of exhibitors from across the United States, the event features educational sessions. The sessions will cover everything from the latest technical challenges that attendees may be facing in their businesses, to regulatory and environmental concerns. The educational sessions presenters include staff members from truck manufacturers, trade associations, fleet managers, truck equipment distributors, equipment upfitters and truck dealers from around the world. Also presenting will be Governmental representatives from the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy and the California Air Resources Board.
