Commercial Truck Equipment Co. is a Canadian supplier of truck equipment, and former manufacturer of cutaway buses under the name Commercial Body Builders Ltd.

History

In 1947, Commercial Body Builders Ltd. was established in Vancouver, BC. The company thrived in the manufacturing of truck bodies for telecommunication, hydro, mining, construction, forestry, retail, and service companies.

During the 1990s, the company began to diversify, beginning to produce equipment for the Canadian Military, General Motors, and several large US based utility companies. It also manufactured armored trucks and introduced two lines of cutaway buses.

Throughout the 2000s and early 2010s, the company acquired various truck equipment suppliers.

In 2013, Commercial Body Builders and all of its acquisitions merged to form one unified company: Commercial Truck Equipment Co., and restructured itself as a distributor of truck equipment. Due to this restructuring, manufacturing operations ceased, removing the company from the bus manufacturing industry. As a distributor, it has acquired several competitors.
