Reading Body Works changes name, makes promotions

Reading Body Works has changed its name, formed an alliance with one of its distributor networks and announced several promotions. The truck body manufacturer’s new name is Reading Truck Body, and Crest Truck Equipment, a group of Reading distributors in the Mid-Atlantic region, will now be known as Reading Equipment & Distribution. Both companies will operate collectively as the Reading Group. Dan Perlman, previously Reading’s vice president of manufacturing, is president of the Reading Group. Jack O’Donnell, formerly Reading’s executive vice president, is chief operating officer of Reading Truck Body. The company also named Peter Hempenstall vice president of sales.
