Matt Sink

By Matt Sink, Mickey Truck Bodies CEO
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Mickey Truck Bodies has been proud and privileged to be recognized as an essential business, able to serve our customers who deliver vital goods and services to the general public. Through it all we have kept our plants open and our people working, and we continue to do so safely and productively.

Of course, delivery of the U.S. mail, under normal circumstances, is one such vital service. But considering these not-so-normal times, prompt and thorough mail delivery is even more crucial. If current election estimates bear out as predicted, about 80 million mail ballots will be delivered to election offices this fall, more than twice the number returned in 2016. Concerns about potential virus transmission at polling places will make mail voting in America more accessible this year than ever before.

We’re installing liftgates on several United States Postal Service trucks at our Fleet Services Center in New Jersey. And while these will play a small role in helping make sure all the votes are counted in the upcoming election, the bigger picture is the trend toward liftgates to improve delivery productivity, regardless of what’s being delivered. (See the liftgate story in this issue of The Mickey Spirit.)

Mickey Truck Bodies has been ahead of the liftgate trend. We opened a dedicated 20,000-sq-ft liftgate installation and chassis prep facility adjacent to our main manufacturing plant in High Point in 2017. It’s probably the most automated manufacturing plant of its type in the country, and demand has kept the plant running at top speed from day 1. We are an authorized installer for all major liftgate brands, and we have the most talented team of installers in the business, not only in High Point but also at all our Regional Fleet Services Centers. Like the one in New Jersey that’s upfitting the U.S. mail trucks.

To paraphrase: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat … keeps Mickey Truck Bodies from the swift completion of its appointed rounds.”
