Morgan Olson Adding Walk-in Step Van Production Facility in Virginia

925,000 sq. ft. facility company’s fourth expansion in past six years

STURGIS, Mich. — Morgan Olson, a manufacturer of walk-in step vans, reports that it is adding a new, 925,000-square-foot walk-in step van production facility in Danville, Va. 

“Morgan Olson walk-in step vans are in demand more than ever” says Mike Ownbey, Morgan Olson’s president and CEO. “We’ve been very fortunate with capturing large orders from major parcel package delivery companies; however, other important industries and valued customers depend on Morgan Olson walk-in vans every day, too. Baking and snack food, textile rental and uniform companies, city municipalities, and even the food truck industry, all rely on Morgan Olson walk-in vans for their business service. 

“The growth of E-commerce on-line purchases requires efficient and fast home delivery. If you’ve bought an item online, there’s an excellent chance a Morgan Olson walk-in step van delivered it to your home or business.” 

Morgan Olson says that less than 10 years ago, the company’s Sturgis, Mich., facility was manufacturing 100% of all Morgan Olson’s step van orders. 

“When you’re the preferred walk-in step van body company and your plants are full, we needed to grow to meet our customer’s needs and to protect our team member’s work/life balance,” shares Ownbey. “It was our Sturgis team members’ dedication and on-time delivery that’s provided the foundation of the Morgan Olson quality and popularity with our customers. This new Virginia plant makes our fourth expansion in the past six years.”

It was just a few short years ago that Morgan Olson opened another 325,000-square-foot plant in Loudon, Tenn., to keep up with the demand of its walk-in step van body. 

The company says its Tennessee plant and the soon-to-open Virginia plant both feature the latest in state-of-the-art robotic production tools with highly motivated team members.
