Central North Carolina native Pat Godwin is an example of what hard work and persistence can lead to in America. Godwin grew up on a farm with humble beginnings and worked in his backyard with a borrowed welder to get his repair shop off the ground. With hard work, dedication and a genuine attitude, Godwin succeeded in growing his business, which became The Godwin Group.
Headquartered in Dunn, N.C., The Godwin Group and its affiliated companies comprise the largest family-owned and -operated truck body manufacturer in the United States.
A veteran of the industry for 43 years, Godwin understands the importance of delivering a reliable product. The Godwin Group primarily focuses on municipal and special project accounts, producing dump trucks and snow plows. Their largest account is the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NC DOT). And approximately 90 percent of truck bodies sold to the NC DOT are produced by The Godwin Group.
