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.
