Maintainer is a manufacturer and marketer of high quality, value-based products for work trucks. Maintainer is a dynamic organization, dedicated to exceeding our customer’s expectations by being responsive, efficient and committed to continuous improvement throughout the organization.
From the year of our founding in 1976, Maintainer Corporation of Iowa, Inc. has developed its products to be the best in their class. Our company has continued to be the industry leader in manufacturing and sales of heavy duty customized service bodies, service body cranes and lube bodies. Products that truly meet the needs of the end use customer. Over the years, new products have been introduced and existing products have been improved...all with the common goal of offering only the very highest quality, value priced, products to our customers...dealers and end users alike.
Our very first body design was called a BMT (Basic Maintainer Body) and was a flatbed with a behind cab mounted fixed boom crane. It was designed to fulfill a specific customer need to service equipment in the field.
As sales increased, and the company learned more about its customer's needs, the first one-ton pressurized storage system (PSS) Maintainer service body with 6,000 lb. capacity full hydraulic telescoping boom crane was introduced in the fall of 1981. Acceptance of this new body and crane combination with its extra large cabinets and cargo space plus optional work bench bumper was excellent. In 1984, as a result of increasing demand, the company introduced a two-ton version with an 8,000 lb. capacity crane.
As our company continued to grow, its reputation for high quality market driven custom products led to the development of a two-ton lubrication body. First with an air pumped distribution system and then with a state-of-the-art hydraulic fluid distribution system. The crane product line was expanded to include lift capacities of 3,000 through 14,000 lbs. and state of the art closed-center hydraulics were added to provide simultaneous multiple function operation. This was followed by the introduction of lube skids in 1988 and one-ton lube bodies in 1989. Since then, the list of product enhancements and custom options available has literally exploded.
The bottom line is that Maintainer is truly a one-stop-shop with an enormous capacity to satisfy its customers...giving them what they want, at a fair price and superior return on investment. Maintainer is an exciting company with excellent products and committed people ready to serve you.
