McLaughlin Body Company is a reliable manufacturer of complex cabs and vehicles used in numerous demanding industries, including construction, mining, military, and agricultural. They rely on heavy-duty vehicles to transport or move large quantities of materials, goods, and products present across many fields.

Trucks for Heavy-Duty Applications

From inception to finished product, we work closely with our clients to produce unrivaled results that will improve their bottom line. Our years of expertise allow us to design and develop heavy-duty vehicles based on gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR).

The GVWR helps limit the vehicle’s capacity, including its freight, passenger, and fuel. It will prevent overloading to ensure maximum safety, efficiency, and reliability. The GVWR is also determined based on the materials used.


Heavy-duty trucks and vehicles we can manufacture:

  • Tractor-trailers
  • Boom trucks
  • Dump trucks
  • Cement mixers
  • Cranes

These vehicles are used in abusive environments or for long-haul transportation. Therefore, following the proper GVWR is necessary to guarantee the safety of the driver and everyone around him.

Expansive Range of Capabilities

We can manufacture a heavy-duty truck that exceeds your expectations through our capabilities. We offer sheet metal fabrication, welding, powder coating services, and CNC tube bending, which are imperative in producing durable and high-performance trucks for rugged and stressful environments.

Our range of capabilities include:

MIG, TIG, and Resistance Welding

We focus on three welding techniques: resistance, TIG, and MIG welding. Each method is unique, but all are guaranteed to provide efficient and durable bonds.


More on our welding techniques:

  • TIG welding: Known as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), this arc welding process uses a non consumable tungsten electrode to produce a high-quality weld.
  • Resistance welding: This technique is also the most cost-effective as it doesn’t need any material to produce the weld. It only needs enough pressure and a solid current to heat the joint until it reaches its melting point.
  • MIG welding: Also known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), MIG welding is one of the most widely used processes and involves a consumable wire electrode that melts with an electric arc, creating a stable bond.

CNC Tube Bending

We specialize in CNC mandrel and CNC roll bending methods using cutting-edge CNC tube bending machines. Both are used to produce bent tubes that are free from deformation and imperfections.

CNC mandrel is a specialized technique where tubes are bent in tight radius without wrinkles while ensuring a full finish. Meanwhile, CNC roll bending is applicable for large-scale projects with high repeatability.

Powder Coating Services

Our powder coating services provide a durable coat that can last up to five times longer than traditional paint. The finish protects against corrosion, abrasion, scratches, high temperatures, and chips.

We also use a wide range of materials that will effectively protect the surface of any heavy-duty vehicle. Therefore, it offers protection for trucks constantly exposed to harsh environments.
