J.B. Poindexter & Co. Inc., parent company of Morgan Olson, is buying Reading Truck Body, which makes service and other bodies.

Reading Truck Body includes Reading Truck Body LLC, which has a manufacturing plant in Reading, Pa., as well as five company-owned installation facilities operating as Reading Equipment & Distribution LLC. It will operate as an independent business unit within JBPCO, led by current CEO Brian Nadel and his management team.
