History of UTB

Legendary work truck pioneer, Jack Podlesak, started providing the utility and telephone industry with his utility body to provide security and cost savings in 1953.  Under Jack’s stewardship, the company grew to three locations providing the highest quality utility bodies, cranes and digger derricks to the utility industry.

Jack retired from the UTB-Photo1business in 1989 at which time, former employees lead by Norm Rose, purchased the company.  Norm led the company until his retirement in 2006 at which time the plant was relocated to its present home in Phoenix, Arizona.

UTB is lead today with an experienced team of truck equipment veterans who have continued to grow and expand the company in the tradition of Mr. Podlesak who required that each body was Built to Work…Built to Last!

The product line has expanded today to include crane bodies, dump bodies, contractor and chippers.  For all your vocational needs, United Truck Bodies is here to serve the contractor and utility industry.
