Utilimaster opened an additional vehicle production facility in Bristol, Ind., which will also support aftermarket parts and service and research and development.
Utilimaster, which reports under the Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services business unit, opened the new 105,000-square-foot facility to improve bringing its parts to market and accommodating production overflow from increased demand for commercial and fleet delivery and specialty service vehicles.
"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, Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services."
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.
Jobs include full-time associates supported by a steady force of contract associates. Open positions include engineers, supervisors, team leads, warehouse staff, assemblers, and more.
