Spartan Chassis Earns ISO 9001 Recertification

Stocks in this article: SPAR

CHARLOTTE, Mich., March 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spartan Chassis Inc., a subsidiary of Spartan Motors, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPAR), announced today that the company has been recertified to ISO 9001:2008 standards for the design and assembly of Military Defense Products, Aftermarket Parts and Assemblies (APA) and Fabrication with zero findings. ISO 9001:2008, one of the most recognized and respected standards of quality in the world, is the fourth and latest edition of the ISO standard first published in 1987, which has become an international benchmark for providing high quality products and maintaining excellent customer satisfaction.

ISO 9001:2008 registration is important for Spartan to remain competitive in a crowded market where customers can tap suppliers from around the globe. ISO registration demonstrates that a company is operating at peak performance and sets it apart from competitors offering similar services.

In the defense industry in particular, ISO registration is often a required quality standard for contracts, so this registration enhances Spartan's already highly competitive position in defense related opportunities.

The APA team is a premier supplier of heavy-duty products with expertise in parts for the recreational, emergency rescue and specialty markets, such as the defense industry. APA prides itself on delighting its customer with its "can do" attitude, building relationships through open communication and developing and empowering the team.

"We are delighted to maintain ISO registration, which recognizes our commitment to quality and continuous improvement for our customers," said Tom Gorman, COO of Spartan Motors. "Everyone at Spartan Motors takes great pride in our reputation for speed and agility with high quality. The achievement of this registration serves as validation of the dedicated team of Spartan's associates and serves as a powerful demonstration of our commitment to excellence. Spartan Motors drives each of its business units to obtain ISO certification."
