INDIANAPOLIS, March 8, 2022 – EAVX, a business unit of JB Poindexter & Co (JBPCO) which collaborates with advanced electric and alternative power chassis producers as well as the most innovative technology partners announced during their Work Truck Week debut. EAVX’s presence will include an interactive design studio that asks conference attendees the question: “What’s your next?”

This studio will illustrate the enterprise-wide collaboration occurring within the JBPCO family of businesses. The design studio will serve as an innovation hub at the conference, providing a location for industry experts and peers to meet and propel conversations around the future of commercial vehicles, while also discussing concrete applications and utilization of the latest technology concepts.

“The EAVX team is on a mission to create the next generation of commercial vehicles by integrating body and chassis with leading-edge technology and innovation,” Mark Hope, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager at EAVX, said. “We strive to be at the forefront of design, manufacturing and serviceability of the work truck industry by leveraging the resources of JBPCO and collaborating with industry leaders in electric- and alternative-power chassis and technology suppliers. Together, we are transforming the world’s largest fleets for a more sustainable future.”

Onsite JBPCO collaboration examples include Reading Truck with Zeus Electric Chassis, and Morgan Truck Body vehicles on electric chassis with EAVX technology upfitted within.

Showcasing a wide variety of its next-generation technology for the work truck industry, EAVX will illustrate firsthand how these innovative concepts can be implemented into their VX Control system, the technology infrastructure of each vehicle.

Among technologies integrated into the multiplexed system, attendees can expect to experience 360-degree camera systems, digital rearview and side-view mirrors and an RFID tool finder, a system that provides a dashboard notification when a user has left work truck items at a job site.

“As the innovation hub of JBPCO, EAVX is collaborating with chassis manufacturers and technology suppliers across our business enterprise to optimize the design and manufacture of next-generation commercial vehicles,” John Poindexter, CEO and Chairman at JBPCO, said. “EAVX’s holistic approach to integration, deployment and serviceability empowers customers to meet higher standards for sustainability and performance—transforming the road ahead.”
