Our Company

Since 1946, Kidron has been an active partner with the truck transportation industry, committed to designing and manufacturing truck bodies and trailers that can deliver optimum productivity in the distribution of refrigerated cargo.

Our refrigerated distribution truck bodies and trailers — designed for both mechanical and cold plate product protection — set the industry standard for thermal efficiency. Plus, as part of our half-century “partnership” with food service and dairy companies, we are proud of our record for introducing legendary advantages like rugged monocoque construction, foamed-in-place non-CFC insulation, Pressure Pillow Seal™ doors, adjustable compartments and a wide range of labor and cost-saving options.

Now owned by VT Hackney, Kidron has evolved into the leading producer of both refrigerated distribution products. We offer both Kidron and Hackney brand reefer bodies. All draw upon our longtime success at engineering and manufacturing units that can deliver exceptional strength and long service life, using construction techniques and materials that result in the lightest possible weight.

Headquartered in Washington, NC, Kidron’s manufacturing locations are strategically located to serve a national customer base.
