Scelzi Enterprises, Inc, a manufacturer of premium truck bodies based in Fresno, CA has purchased PMI Truck Bodies in Tacoma, WA. Scelzi is a leading manufacturer and upfitter of work truck bodies for Ford, RAM, Chevrolet, and other truck builders. Scelzi was a Top 5 USA truck body supplier for Ford and RAM commercial truck divisions in 2021. PMI Truck Bodies is a regional distributor and upfitter of work truck bodies for the Pacific Northwest, and a Scelzi distributor for almost 20 years.
“PMI has done a fine job as our distributor in Oregon and Washington for many years,” states Scelzi owner and President Mike Scelzi, “but it was time to officially bring them into the Scelzi family of facilities so we can continue our growth in that area. We are happy to add their 20 employees to our team and will be adding more as our plans in the region develop.”
The new Tacoma location will allow Scelzi to expand production out of California and closer to the Pacific Northwest customers and into the surrounding states as well, including service bodies, contractors, combos, flatbeds, dump bodies and water trucks. The location already has complete manufacturing and powder coating capabilities, and pools for Ford and Chevrolet chassis cabs. The current 17,000 square foot facility sits on 2 acres, but expansion is likely later in 2022.
“We are thrilled to officially become part of the Scelzi family,” adds Rhett Hadman, the outgoing PMI Vice President, who will assume the role of operations manager of the facility. “Scelzi is keeping our staff intact though we will all need to adjust a little to a different corporate culture.” Rhett’s brother, Taylor, will continue as the Shop Floor Manager.
The Location will be designated “Scelzi-Tacoma” and will follow the same rigorous production quality standards as other Scelzi assembly and production facilities in Fresno, Riverside, and Shafter (CA), as well as LaSalle (CO). “More expansion moves into other locations on the way,” says Scelzi, “as our customer base continues to expand from our core business in California.”
