Posted on June 15, 2005 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

FORT SMITH, ARK. — J.B. Poindexter & Co., Inc. has purchased Federal Coach, LLC. Houston-based J.B. Poindexter is a leading manufacturer of medium-duty truck bodies, step vans, and pick-up truck accessories through its subsidiary brands: Morgan, Morgan Olson, Commercial Babcock, Leer, Century, Raider, and Pace Edwards. “Federal Coach is a perfect fit for the line of businesses that we’re in,” said John Poindexter, who described the acquisition as a product-line extension.

Federal Coach is excited about the opportunity to be associated with a company such as Poindexter, the company said. Federal Coach will continue to engineer and produce the high quality, safe limousines, funeral coaches and buses. “We look forward to utilizing the resources and product experience that Poindexter possesses,” stated Dewayne Thompson, Vice President and General Manager for Federal Coach.

The Fort Smith, Ark.-based plant will retain existing management and workforce while making the necessary changes to expand production operations. “It will be great for the company and the community,” said Thompson, “and we are convinced that this is the beginning of a very bright future for all of us.”
