Growing pains are a good thing for Charlotte based Spartan Motors.
To make room for its booming fire truck chassis business, its chassis unit will break ground on a $14.5 million facility next month. Production will begin in one year and the 650 person company will add jobs as well.
Spartan Motors builds chassis' for fire trucks, recreational vehicles and military defense vehicles. Last year it secured a $13 million contract to make more than 100 military vehicles called Cougars.
Last month it reported its best month ever for orders of fire truck chassis'.
