Spartan Motors Chassis Inc., a subsidiary of Spartan Motors Inc., today (Sept. 23) announced Fleetwood RV Inc., will begin offering its 2010 Fleetwood RV brand Class A motorhomes on Spartan’s custom diesel chassis.

The contract calls for the Charlotte, Mich.-based chassis manufacturer to design, engineer and assemble chassis for integration with Fleetwood RV’s coaches. Delivery of the custom chassis to Fleetwood RV is scheduled to begin in October, according to a news release.

 “Despite continued economic uncertainty in 2009, Spartan has been focused on leveraging its operational and strategic agility, as well as customization in order to meet customer requirements in the RV market,” said John Sztykiel, president and CEO of Spartan Motors. “Our proactive business initiatives and strong brand have resulted in an opportunity to continue, and expand, a valuable business partnership in a core market. This order is a very positive development for Spartan, Fleetwood RV and the market as a whole.”

 In addition to this new Fleetwood RV brand opportunity, Spartan also supplies all the diesel chassis for Fleetwood RV’s American Coach brand.
