The National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) confirmed that J&J Truck Bodies & Trailers' renewal for qualified member status through the member verification program has been approved. As such, J&J Truck Bodies & Trailers will be recognized as an MVP member through March 31, 2015. MVP accredited companies distinguish themselves by achieving key criteria around employee education and training, quality, safety and compliance with government regulatory requirements.

J&J president Bill Riggs said "We are pleased to participate in the MVP program, as we have since its start in 2006. The NTEA requirements were even more stringent this year, but because of our ongoing focus on training and quality, and our compliance to our ISO, ASME, and DOT certifications, we remain ahead of industry standards."

According to NTEA President Steve Sill, president, Aspen Equipment (Minneapolis, Minn.), "NTEA MVP status identifies firms that are verified to have achieved high standards in order to provide better value to their customers. They have proven their commitment to achieve excellence within the work truck industry by adopting specific business practices and verified compliance with applicable government regulations."

The MVP program — first introduced to NTEA members in 2005 — identifies consistent business practices around quality, integrity, safety, training and compliance; helping member companies create mutually beneficial and longer-lasting relationships with their suppliers, distributors and customers.
