|About||Building custom aluminum and steel truck bodies for over 50 years.|
Paramount Truck Body Co. was originally founded in Chicago Illinois in the early 1943. Every body that we manufacturer is still the same original design with a few minor interior upgrades. For over 70 years we have strived to fabricate and deliver the best built body in the United States.
With an ever growing and evolving refrigerated delivery market it has made us expand our knowledge to vans. That’s when we started fabricated and designing the highest quality custom refrigerated van interiors in the Chicago market. For over 20 years we have used the highest quality spray foam with an all aluminum skin interior for a superior product. This application creates a water tight interior for all of your food delivery needs.
Paramount’s capabilities extend beyond fabricating custom truck bodies and van interiors. We are one of the leading distributors in Chicago for all the major liftgate manufacturers. Currently we service major fleets or single users with all their repairs and new installs of liftgates. We are also a full service repair shop capable of all repairs to box trucks, trailers, or any other smaller vehicles. We are still one of the only shops left in downtown Chicago that has a full service body shop capable of performing any repair that your vehicle would need. We work with all the major insurance companies along with major corporations and also a few government agencies.
After World War II had ended Joseph Smolucha started lettering trucks for a living.

This is what set Paramount apart from all of the other body manufactures when Joseph purchased the business. Not only did Paramount custom build the bodies, but we also would custom paint and letter each truck. To this day Paramount Truck Body is a complete in house service for all of our customers needs. We take pride in each vehicle that we build, servic
