Commercial Customers Design Super Duty Trucks For The Toughest Jobs

January 3rd, 2017

fsd17_pg_007_ext_fullBorgman Commercial has helped businesses in Grand Rapids, West Michigan, and abroad build and configure Ford vehicles to be optimized for the tasks they’ll be performing.

However, you can further customize the truck with upfits and accessories that will transform the all-purpose workhorse into a highly-specialized utility vehicle.
