Spartan Motors Breaks Ground on New Truck Assembly Plant

Spartan Motors has broken ground on its $5.5m truck assembly plant that will manufacture Isuzu's new F-Series trucks.

Spartan held this morning's event at its headquarters at 1541 Reynolds Road in Charlotte, Mich.

Isuzu North America Corporation recently expanded its relationship with Spartan by selecting the Company to produce the new line of Isuzu trucks. The F-Series trucks will extend Isuzu's product offering into Class 6 on-highway commercial trucks.

This decision to further expand the alliance, which began in 2011 with the production of Isuzu's gasoline-powered N-Series trucks, demonstrates Isuzu's continued confidence in Spartan's quality, people, flexibility, and expertise.

Spartan Motors president and CEO Daryl Adams said: "Today's groundbreaking ceremony represents a significant milestone for Spartan, as we expand our manufacturing footprint and bring new jobs to Michigan.

"Measurable growth in our relationships with existing clients, such as Isuzu, further confirms our multi-year strategic plan is driving improved performance and will continue to pay dividends for Spartan over the long-term.

Adams added, "We also want to thank our State and local officials for their collaboration and continued support of Spartan's growth initiatives."

New Production Creating Job Growth

The new plant will be part of Spartan's Charlotte manufacturing campus, and it will be dedicated solely to the production of Isuzu vehicles.

This new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will have a flexible production line that can be easily reconfigured to accommodate the assembly of multiple product lines.

Further, the production of the F-Series trucks by Spartan at this new plant will bring new jobs to the Michigan workforce.

Spartan Motors specialty vehicles division president Steve Guillaume said: "We are excited for the opportunity to further grow our business relationship with Isuzu.

"Contract manufacturing is a core competency of Spartan. This is another great opportunity for us to broaden our portfolio in this key area."
