We’ve been building big rigs for over four decades. As a result, we know our way around your vehicles from the chassis up. Our cost structure, resource management capabilities, and flexible manufacturing model allow you to produce effectively at volumes that are modest compared to mass-market manufacturers and assemblers.
From full materials sourcing to managed assembly and production, we can ramp up and down to meet your business specifics. Our manufacturing and engineering expertise allow us to achieve the speed, agility and responsiveness needed for fast and flexible production. Our cost structure is low, and our assembly workers are highly skilled in automotive assembly (the average tenure for a Spartan assembly worker is 12+ years). And our demonstrable dedication to lean and continuous improvement deliver value at every step, merging seamlessly with your needs.
Isuzu North America partnered with Spartan Motors to help increase production of their popular F-Series Gas Trucks. With their specifications and our expertise, we worked together to design a new plant layout, planned and managed construction, defined lean workflow/cells, and managed pilot production builds.
In less than one year, we launched the facility and streamlined production stations by 73%, resulting in an astounding flexed production volume of 3x, with no loss of build quality. Today, Isuzu continues to lean on Spartan as a partner in their ongoing heavy vehicle success.
