DECKED, manufacturers of full-sized pickup truck bed storage systems, announced that after six months of availability, they continue to support job creation and domestic manufacturing by building the entire DECKED system in the United States. The deck, drawers and “ammo cans” of the system are manufactured at a plant in Williams County, Ohio. The DECKED Headquarters is located in Ketchum, Idaho, and several jobs have been created in both locations. Other components of the system like the powder coated, cast aluminum handles, brushed aluminum edge guard and I-beam plate are also manufactured at various locations around the country. Additionally, the entire system was engineered to meet strict load bearing requirements and fit standards by Altair Product Design, an engineering firm in Detroit. The DECKED system became available to truck owners mid-January and can now be found in more than 175 select dealers across the country. The DECKED system is also available for immediate purchase on their website.
In addition to being manufactured in the United States, the DECKED system also uses 100 percent recycled HDPE for the deck, drawers and ammo cans, and approximately 90 percent recycled steel for the subframe that is molded into the deck. A series of lateral steel tubes are molded into the deck which helps it achieve a 2,000 pound load rating for cargo. The environmentally friendly HDPE drawers are engineered to each carry 200 pounds of cargo.
