Trucking bed and body company to add 250 jobs in Quincy

QUINCY, Ill. (AP) — A trucking bed and body company says it plans to expand in western Illinois, eventually adding as many as 250 jobs.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reported Monday ( ) that Quincy-based Knapheide Manufacturing Co. will build an additional facility in Quincy over the next year. The 188,000-square-foot facility will be just south of the company’s existing 480,000-square-foot facility. Construction is scheduled to start March 1 and be finished by Feb. 28, 2018.

Knapheide officials say the expansion will create 250 new jobs in manufacturing, installation and various support roles. The company already has about 1,200 workers in Quincy and is one of the city’s largest employers.

The company makes steel service truck bodies and truck beds. Current company leaders represent the sixth-generation of the Knapheide family.
