Spartan Emergency Response will delivery fire apparatus within 180 days under its new 180 Truck Program that was introduced at the Fire Department Instructors Conference in Indianapolis.

The new pledge by the Spartan Motors division will cut delivery times for the apparatus in half, according to the company.

“Innovation takes many forms up and down the value chain," said John Slawson, division president of Spartan Emergency Response. "We’re pushing the envelope in areas beyond product development, including our speed to market."

By getting a head start on full-featured custom production, Spartan can complete a fully-engineered, built-to-order apparatus in six months without compromising quality, according to a release. The company will initially offer more than a dozen pumper and aerial models under the program.
