Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services, a business unit of Charlotte-based Spartan Motors Inc., today announced a partnership with Ranger Design, a commercial van outfit manufacturer for mobile professionals at the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) Institute and Expo at the Tampa Bay Convention Center.
The partnership combines the custom engineering and industry expertise of Spartan Upfit Solutions with Ranger’s standardized products, including van racks, shelves, and storage equipment.
Spartan Upfit Services is a modernized fleet upfit assembly operation dedicated to the customization of cargo vans and other midsize fleet vehicles serving the utility, telecom, healthcare, construction, food and beverage, and parcel delivery markets.
Spartan Motors and Rangers will offer a portfolio of work-truck solutions with original equipment manufacturer Ship-Thru availability. The collaboration will also expand customer warranty support to more than 300 locations in North America for Ranger components installed on Spartan trucks and vans.
“We are thrilled to add Ranger products and dealerships to our extensive network of Spartan Upfit Services partners. We are confident it will exceed our fleet customers’ expectations through more options and an expanded portfolio of work-truck solutions,” says John Forbes, president of Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services.
Spartan offers a combination of kits and base packages with corresponding customized services, with common vocational packages available for quick delivery. Ship-Thru locations in Kansas City, Missouri, and Saltillo, Mexico allow vehicles to be upfit with minimal freight costs.
