Marion Body Works Defense business has been building defense bodies and tactical vehicle components since the U.S. military set foot in the sands of the first Persian Gulf War.
Defense Contractors recognize our diverse capabilities have been forged from the emergency calls of our fire and rescue vehicles, as well as from our demanding custom truck body applications. Even our Commercial Truck Bodies are engineered and built to “tougher than normal” standards – we don’t just build a body, we manufacture a capability where there wasn’t one before. We leverage our broad body experience to compliment your tactical vehicle’s need to go anywhere and do anything at a moment’s notice.

Once our equipment has been deployed we also have the ability to handle its Reset. This involves taking the deployed equipment, returning it, and removing all components. We then sand blast its components back to the bare metal and then remanufacture the body back to original equipment standards.
