Utilimaster demand drives investment in new production overflow, aftermarket parts facility, addition of 200 jobs

Utilimaster, a Spartan Motors brand, is adding a vehicle production facility in Bristol IN that it says also will support aftermarket parts and service, and research and development.

Located less than 3 miles from Utilimaster’s Bristol headquarters, the new 105,000-square-foot facility will be instrumental in bringing the company’s products to market and accommodating production overflow from increased demand for commercial and fleet delivery, and specialty service vehicles, Spartan said.

To accelerate current production volume while the new facility is being equipped, Utilimaster’s flagship Bristol facility will begin second-shift operations, adding approximately 200 jobs to accommodate increased demand, the company maintained. Jobs include full-time associates supported by a steady force of contract associates. Open positions include engineers, supervisors, team leads, warehouse staff and assemblers.

“Expanding our footprint into our new 105,000-square-foot facility represents not only Utilimaster’s growth, but also our commitment to the Bristol community,” said Chad Heminover, president of Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services. “We’re proud to be in a position to invest back into the business to secure our leadership position and help ensure future growth by leading first-to-last-mile delivery and specialty service innovation.”
