SOMERSET, Pa. — J&J Truck Bodies & Trailers, a division of Somerset Welding & Steel, has announced the appointment of Michael Schweitzer as sales manager for the mid-Atlantic Region.
Schweitzer has two decades of sales experience in the truck industry, having worked for Navistar and Rush Enterprises in the Midwest and South.
“I grew up around trucks. My whole life, I’ve been around trucks — even as a little kid. My first job was as a lot boy on a used truck yard,” Schweitzer said.
J&J Truck Bodies & Trailers is a leading manufacturer of dump bodies, trailers and custom transportation solutions. J&J Truck Equipment supplies field service cranes bodies, air and hydraulic operated lubrication service units, hydraulic systems, mechanic bodies, flat beds and snow removal equipment.
“J&J was very interesting to me because of the quality of product,” said Schweitzer, who joined the company in February. “There’s a sense of pride that the people I work with have that is very telling. You don’t see that in a lot of other places. You definitely don’t see that in a lot of the bigger companies, and we’re a big company. It’s just real nice to see that. I did not expect to see that type of attitude.”
His territory includes Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and a portion of Delaware.
