Spartan Motors has begun construction of an 85,000-square-foot plant to assemble Isuzu cabovers for the North American fleet market, the company has announced.

Workers at Spartan's $5.5-million plant will manufacture Isuzu's new F-Series Class 6 cabover trucks that will go on sale in 2017. The plant is located at Spartan's headquarters and manufacturing facility in Charlotte, Mich.

Spartan is expanding an alliance it started with Isuzu North America Corp. (INAC) that began in 2011 with the production of Isuzu's gasoline-powered N-Series cabover trucks.

Spartan and Isuzu officials that appeared at the site April 19 for a ground-breaking ceremony included Shaun Skinner, president of Izusu Commercial Truck of America; Shigeji Sigimoto, president of INAC; Daryl Adams, president and CEO of Spartan Motors; and Steve Guillaume, president of Spartan Specialty Vehicles.
