Stocks in this article: SPAR

INDIANAPOLIS, April 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spartan Chassis, a subsidiary of Spartan Motors, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPAR), expanded its product offering with the launch of Series 75 Aerial debuted at the Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) in Indianapolis, Ind. A cab and a chassis with a mounted 75' aerial ladder, the Series 75 immediately expands the market opportunity of its 44 Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partners.

"The release of the Series 75 allows for greater breadth of opportunity for all of our OEMs," said Dennis Schneider, President of Spartan Emergency Response. "The line provides a field-proven product that meets the needs of the emergency response market. Within the next year, the product offering will be quickly expanded to include a 100' platform."

Comprised of an all-steel chassis, the Series 75 Aerial provides the option to operate as an attack engine or ladder truck. Easy to maneuver in tight areas, the Series 75 Aerial enables fast knockdown with its 500 gallon water capacity. Offering great overall serviceability and low cost of ownership, this line of ladder-equipped cab/chassis is NFPA-compliant and delivers superior overall performance.

Additionally, Spartan Chassis has further expanded the market for its 44 OEM partners with the introduction of the Latitude, a one-of-a-kind device that redefines versatility. The Latitude combines multiple functions into a single multi-function tool: (i) Reach: a boom which elevates 28', (ii) Brute Force: it can lift up to 1,000 lbs., (iii) Power Extension: the Latitude provides both hydraulic and compressed air to deliver power where it is needed, (iv) Illumination: 6,000 watts of halogen light, (v) Elevated Master Stream: including 360 degrees of rotation and extension of -10 degrees to +90 degrees.

The introduction of the Series 75 and Latitude illustrate Spartan Chassis' continued efforts to support the business growth of all 44 OEM partners. These two introductions are driven by the strategy to leverage and extend the Company's core markets.
