ALUMINUM, FIBERGLASS AND STEEL
Altec has been building truck bodies for more than 85 years, and offers the most innovative and dependable bodies in the industry. Altec bodies are built using advanced engineering, technology and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. And, unlike the competition, Altec Bodies can be designed to your exact specifications. Because we offer all three industry materials: aluminum, fiberglass and steel, we don’t have a bias. Whether it’s lightweight, cost-efficient or corrosion-resistant, Altec offers and recommends the best material to fit your needs. Altec also provides body only mounts.
WHY AN ALTEC BODY?
Innovation is evident in Altec’s Bodies Division. A truck-mounted body – whether it is a service, utility, or tree care body – is only as good as the sum of its parts. That’s why Altec puts more time, resources, engineering and expertise into developing Bodies than any other manufacturer in the industry. From design to fabrication, Altec is building the highest quality, most dependable bodies to meet customer demands.

In addition to Fiberglass and Aluminum, Altec Steel Bodies are built with a smooth galvannealed floor and tailshelf, which offer improved resistance against corrosion and better ability to paint, weld and form. The galvanneal surface is coasted in a non-skid paint and provides the same anti-slip as tread plate, with greater corrosion protection. Altec also offers "ICE Package," which uses stainless steel to provide an extra shield against corrosion.
At Altec, we believe a better body starts from the ground up. We offer options that go beyond the standard, so you can truly find a solution to work for your specific needs. You can even work directly with a design engineer and see your body created in 3D, so you know what you're getting before it's delivered.
