Officials of Marion Body Works, Inc. have announced that they have signed an agreement with Consolidated Construction Co., Inc. to build a new headquarters and expand an existing manufacturing facility at company’s 211 W. Ramsdell Street location in Marion, Wis., with an official groundbreaking ceremony set to take place on Aug. 24.

Marion Body Works, in business since 1905, manufactures fire & emergency apparatus, commercial truck bodies, aluminum custom cabs, custom engineered vehicles, and defense products for customers across the country. The family-owned company currently employs over 230.

The new Marion Body Works headquarters will feature corporate offices, a customer showroom, engineering, and design facilities in approximately 19,000 square feet of space. Architects with Consolidated Construction, a design-build firm located in Appleton, Wis., designed the building to reflect the products and personality of the company, as well as offer large overhead doors and space for access and display of heavy commercial vehicles, according to Marion Body Works.
