R/S-Godwin Truck Body Company began in 1968 as a small local job shop catering to the Eastern Kentucky coal industry with a marketing range of only a couple hundred miles. Building bodies for the coal industry could be very good business as long as the coal industry was growing. In 1977, R/S decided to diversify into other dump body markets. Aluminum dump bodies and trailers were added to the existing line of steel construction bodies and steel trailers. It 1986 R/S purchased Page Manufacturing from Dura Corporation further expanding the company's capabilities. Since moving to its current 150,000 square foot facility in 1998, R/S has flourished by providing excellent customer service and innovative products that cater to the needs of the industry. R/S became an affiliate of The Godwin Group in 2002 further solidifying its presence in the truck equipment market and becoming part of the most successful family owned truck equipment manufacturing company in the nation.
