Many years ago, Hostetlers started building wooden livestock bodies in Belleville, Pennsylvania. For several years, a large sign at the entrance to the Belleville Livestock Market announced this was the “Home of Hostetler Truck Bodies”. The wooden body pictured is no longer available, but it launched Hostetler into the truck body and trailer market.
Hostetler is an approved truck upfitter for Ford, GMC/Chevrolet and Dodge. We are also an approved direct ship to point for the truck manufacturers. We are an approved subcontractor for PennDOT and are contracted to PA municipalities to provide truck bodies and trailers through the COSTARS program.
Since we are a “Homegrown” Pennsylvania company, along with our other suppliers, we endeavor to partner with other Pennsylvania-based manufacturers. These include: M.H. Eby Truck Bodies & Trailers from Blue Ball, Mustang Trailers from Glassport, Tamaqua Steel & Aluminum Dump bodies from Tamaqua, Bri-Mar Trailers from Chambersburg, Belmont Trailers from Gordonville and Worthington Aluminum Traile rs from Muncy.
From this humble beginning, The Hostetler Company is now recognized throughout the North Eastern United States as a major supplier of various types of truck bodies and trailers. In recent years, we have supplied service bodies, flatbeds and trailers to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Hostetler is a “One Stop Shop” offering sales, repairs, installation, service and PA State Inspections Fri 7:30am – 5:00pm, Sat 8:00am – 12pm Station.
