Fontaine Modification opens new Michigan facility to support Detroit Chassis


Fontaine Modification (Charlotte, North Carolina) opened its tenth modification center located in the greater Detroit, Michigan, area. The new facility will provide modifications for Ford’s F-59 and F-53 stripped chassis assembled by Detroit Chassis. This becomes the fourth facility operating under the
Light Duty Truck & EV Solutions division.

“Our new modification center positions Fontaine in the heart of American manufacturing and near the Detroit Chassis plant to support the F-53 and F-59 chassis as they roll off the line,” says Pat Griffin, president, Fontaine Modification Light Duty Truck and EV Solutions. “The location will allow us to complete modifications faster and streamline the chassis delivery process so that customers get what they need sooner.”

Fontaine Modification will provide customized body prep packages, suspension modifications / upgrades, and electric vehicle conversions for F-53 and F-59 chassis at its new 65,000-square-foot modification center. Nate Eichinger, Dir. Operations, will oversee the new facility in addition to the existing Light Duty Truck & EV Solutions locations.
