Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services, a business unit of Spartan Motors Inc. that goes to market under the Utilimaster, Spartan Upfit Services, and Strobes-R-Us brands, will showcase an upfitted Ford Transit low roof, 130-inch wheelbase van and introduce their recently acquired Strobes-R-Us brand to the industry at the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) Institute & Expo from April 15-17 in Louisville, Ky.
On display in Booth No. 347, Utilimaster’s latest purpose-built upfit features vehicle flooring with integrated mounting for the Ford Transit 130-inch wheelbase cargo van, making it built to “withstand tough conditions, endure extra payload, and offer a quiet ride,” according to a press release. The featured model features multiple storage and shelving options, as well as LED lights, a maximum-view partition, and a double-clamp ladder rack.
“Utilimaster’s upfit facility in Kansas City, which is located next to the Ford Transit plant, allows us to provide improved ship-through time and cost savings for this type of upfit,” said Chad Heminover, president, Fleet Vehicles and Services, Spartan Motors. “Displaying this latest vehicle here at the NAFA Institute and Expo demonstrates first-hand that we are a one-stop, bumper-to-bumper upfit partner for customers looking for a quality and unique solution.”
Additionally, Spartan Motors will introduce recently acquired Strobes-R-Us to the market at the Expo. As part of the Spartan Motors family, Strobes-R-Us increases the company’s custom lighting, displays, and storage offerings to law enforcement, specialty fleet upfits, emergency response, and municipal customers.
“We are thrilled to introduce Strobes-R-Us as the newest member of the Spartan family,” said Daryl Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer, Spartan Motors. “In addition to our Utilimaster commercial and retail vehicles seen at NAFA, Spartan Motors serves emergency response customers globally. We look forward to broadening our upfit portfolio to provide innovative upfit solutions to law enforcement and other specialty fleets.”
