Defense Vehicles

Military precision in quality, expertise and service.

Since 2005, Spartan has provided automotive integration, final assembly, inspection, and shipment of more than 30 variants of vehicles under the Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected and International Light Armored Vehicle Programs. Spartan continues to support the sustainment of these vehicles for America’s leading defense contractors.

State of the art

Our flexible production lines and over 700,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space today housed in 11 state of the art buildings are highly modularized and configurable to ramp up or down, depending on government initiatives or sudden changes in the political climate. Further, we keep our knowledge “in-house,” meaning that those who have defense expertise are re-deployed within Spartan when demand is low, and re-engaged when need arises. This ensures Spartan’s ability to quickly and adeptly respond to our customers’ needs, with the highest levels of expertise, so that troops get what they need, when they need it.

Spartan has made significant investments in a lean-driven culture, state of the art equipment and skilled automotive personnel in order to support the warfighter. We maintain a dedicated sales staff to support the defense business, and carry a multimillion dollar inventory of parts to support the MRAP vehicle lines. Our parts warehouse is staffed on two shifts to allow same-day shipping on in-stock items, which meet MIL-SPEC packaging requirements.
