In May of 1922, the firm, which drew its name - orginally the Carnegie Body & Top Co. from its first location at 6115 Carnegie Avenue, began by making and installing things that trucks needed back then: bodies, tops, curtains, seat covers, windshields, and more.
The firm grew there until 1958, when it moved to much larger facilities at 9500 Brookpark Road in Cleveland, Ohio. In 2005, Carnegie Body purchased the assets of Northest Service and Equipment to form its Painesville Branch. A few months later, Carnegie Body purchased the Western and Fisher snow and ice removal product lines from Sidley Equipment and moved them to its Painesville Branch.
Today Carnegie Body is well known as one of Ohio's largest truck equipment distributors servicing the vital transportation industry. It offers a full line of truck bodies, equipment, trailers, and the like, plus has a large service department, fire and rescue vehicle service, and replacement parts.
The transportation industry has become incredibly complex and very high tech. Our mission is to stay abreast and ahead of developements in the field, and to hire technicians and other specialists who can handle that complexity and know-how to do things right.
In addition to selling parts and equipment made by many of the top companies in the transportation industry, the company offers a tremendous range of service work.
That includes complete collision rebuilding and painting, brake, spring and suspension repairs; frame straightening; body repair; painting; front-end alignments; on-vehicle wheel balancing; all vehicle federal inspections, snow plow repairs, engine tune-ups, fabricating aluminum and fiberglass bodies; installing wet lines and lift axles - in short, doing whatever it takes to set things right.
Equipment and parts come from dozens of sources: Morgan Bodies, Westrn Snow and Ice Control, Galion-Godwin Dump Bodies, North Coast Truck Body, Parkhurst, Kinedyne and more.
Carnegie Body is focused on installing high-quality truck equipment and doing repairs right the first time.
