Spartan Emergency Response, a business unit of Charlotte’s Spartan Motors Inc., Friday announced the addition of Georgia’s Peach State Emergency Vehicles, a division of Peach State Truck Centers, and its sister company, Alabama Emergency Vehicles, to its Spartan-authorized dealerships. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Peach State Emergency Vehicles is authorized to sell and service the full portfolio of Spartan Emergency Response fire apparatus.
“Signing Peach State Emergency Vehicles enables us to expand our reach and re-establish Spartan’s presence in fire houses in the southeast,” says Todd Fierro, president of Spartan Emergency Response. “We look forward to working alongside this established and highly successful dealership group. Like us, they are committed to customer satisfaction and first responder safety.”
Peach State also provides customers with new Spartan fire apparatus vehicles, Spartan parts, and factory authorized repair services from three locations throughout central Georgia and Alabama.
“Spartan manufactures the kind of safe, durable, highly engineered solutions our fire departments are asking for,” says Jeff Cook, director of new truck sales at Peach State. “… This (acquisition) represents a major expansion of available emergency vehicle offerings, and we look forward to providing our customers with the industry’s best in both product and aftermarket support.”
Spartan Emergency Response builds vehicles from the ground up, working with individual fire departments to translate the specs of each truck.
Spartan Motors employs about 2,300 people and reported sales of $816 million in 2018.
