Coronavirus / COVID-19 Information
Putting people first is our normal course of business.
When things aren’t business as usual, we’re here to navigate challenging and unprecedented times with you – together. The Holman Way of doing business guides us to treat our people, business partners, and the community at large with respect and care. That empathetic mindset is the compass guiding our collective response to COVID-19.
Auto Truck Group is considered an essential business. We continue to be fully operational and we’ve executed continuity procedures to support your upfitting and manufacturing needs without compromising the safety of our people. This includes transitioning our office-based workforce to remote workstations, and expanding flexible shifts to decrease volume and increase distance for onsite personnel.
On a daily basis, we’re engaging with industry suppliers and distributors to identify any possible service disruptions. We will continue to update this page with the latest information.
Auto Truck Group and our business partners are closely monitoring the impact that COVID-19 is having on our industry. We will continue to communicate directly with our clients, and we will update this page with new information as we receive it.

All 11 Auto Truck Group locations are open with regularly scheduled operations. The company is taking precautionary measures including having employees work remotely where possible, balancing shift operations to minimize the number of employees on duty at the same time, and applying the best practices published by the CDC.
As of this time, we are not seeing upfit schedules modifying to any significant degree. If the situation changes, we will be sure to notify all affected customers and suppliers as soon as possible. If an event occurs where we need to close a facility, we have contingency planning in place. A location closing likely will impact scheduling and completing some vehicles in the proscribed time. Our intention is to remain flexible as the situation dictates, prioritizing the safety and well-being of our employees.
We’re engaging with critical suppliers daily to identify any potential service disruptions. Based on the information currently available, the majority of suppliers are reporting business as usual under continuity measures and we are not expecting any significant production delays at the present time. If conditions change, we will quickly notify affected customers.
Our intent is to be as transparent as possible. We will continue to update communications regularly.
