Brown Industries provides quality van bodies for all types of customers but our Colorado (Henderson) location specializes in manufacturing van bodies for the many tool truck franchisees that provide service to repair shops nationwide. These tool truck operators require a strong and durable van body to provide protection for the valuable inventory that is required for each of their vehicles. Equipped with custom shelving and cabinetry installed by Summit Body Works, these trucks are special in every way.
The focus in Henderson is not limited to tool truck manufacturing. Heavy duty and severe service platform bodies are produced there as well, and the location also serves as a mounting and distribution center for the dry freight, curtainside, reefer, and specialty products manufactured at our primary facility in Lawrence, KS.
Jerry Smittkamp, the regional sales manager for Brown in Colorado, has spent the majority of his career in the van body manufacturing business. Jerry started working in the van body industry in 1973, when he joined the sales team at Timpte Van Body in Denver, CO. Jerry joined the Brown team in 2011 after having gone through several ownership changes with Timpte. Brown is proud to have someone with Jerry’s experience and knowledge on our team. Jerry is located in Denver, CO serving customers from the Front Range to Salt Lake City.
