Spartan modification centre to support Isuzu truck dealer demand

2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineNovember 18, 2019

Spartan Specialty Vehicles and Chassis, a business unit of Spartan Motors, Inc., is expanding its post-assembly upfit capabilities for Isuzu with the addition of a dedicated modification centre next to Spartan‘s current assembly facility in Charlotte, Michigan.

The modification centre allows Isuzu dealers to order popular product features such as custom paint and wheelbase modifications before the trucks leave the assembly facility. These vehicles will then be put back into the logistics system to optimise transportation expenses. The modifications will be made to Isuzu F-Series and N-Series gas trucks that Spartan currently assembles in Charlotte.

“We are pleased to bring this customised modification centre to Isuzu‘s dealer network to provide more content options for their customers,” said Steve Guillaume, president, Spartan Specialty Vehicles and Chassis. “The new modification centre represents another step in support for Isuzu and their dealers.”

Spartan‘s new modification centre combines quality workmanship with quick turnaround time for content additions and vehicle modifications. This service simplifies the sales process for Isuzu dealers by using an existing transportation system to deliver customised vehicles without the typical logistics challenges and corresponding fees. Dealers no longer need to secure external body shops and upfitters for these modifications, and can easily customize trucks when ordering directly from Spartan.

Spartan has invested heavily in its state-of-the-art production facility. A flexible production line allows for easy reconfiguration to assemble multiple product lines and quickly scale up production to meet expedited delivery needs.
