ST Engineering Hackney

Since 1946, ST Engineering Hackney has been an engineering leader in the design and manufacturing of custom truck bodies and trailers for beverage, specialty, and refrigerated applications.  Marketed under the Hackney and Kidron brands, ST Engineering Hackney product lines are used in multiple industries including multi-stop beverage and food service distribution, contractor services, emergency/rescue and specialty products.

Known primarily as a pioneer in the beverage distribution industry, the Hackney brand represents the largest manufacturer of beverage vehicles in the world.  Since its inception, more than 18,000 aluminum beverage truck bodies have been delivered from 26 international manufacturing locations to users in more than 60 countries outside of the United States.

This reputation was forged by our attention to quality, durability and safety.  A strong attention to customer service is practiced in all four of Hackney’s strategically located assembly sites and spreads to its domestic and international sales force and partners.

Our aim is to work with customers to solve their distribution challenges. We take the approach to view each customer order as a blank sheet and engineer a vehicle around specific needs to optimize delivery performance while enhancing driver safety. With our extensive customer base and our ability to satisfy customers, we take pride in establishing and cultivating long-term relationships.
