  Left to Right- Peoples Bank AVP and Branch Manager W. Chance Abbott, and President Terry Christian join Bodyguard Owner Grant Mallicote in admiring one of the company’s signature trucks.  


Peoples Bank is proud to feature Bodyguard Truck Accessories, a local manufacturer of premium truck bumpers and off-road accessories.   In 2000 a run-in with an errant bull inspired owner Grant Mallicote to build a durable and stylish replacement bumper for his father’s truck.  Nearly fifteen years later Bodyguard has grown from a small Tigertown farm shop into a 40,000 square foot manufacturing operation shipping “Made in the USA” heavy duty replacement bumpers and steps throughout North America.

It’s no surprise Bodyguard’s business philosophy is as strong and long lasting as their bumpers…put customers first, provide exceptional service, and build the finest products in America.  Peoples Bank salutes owners Grant and Kelli Mallicote, and their entire Paris based team, and wishes them continued success.
