Spartan Motors Chassis will supply and integrate chassis components, including independent suspension systems, for the RG33 MRAP vehicle for the U.S. Special Operations Command.

Spartan Motors Chassis Inc., a subsidiary of Spartan Motors Inc., has been awarded a $6.8 million subcontract order from defense contractor BAE Systems to support the production of advanced tactical vehicles under the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) program. Under the terms of the subcontract, the custom chassis manufacturer will supply and integrate key chassis components, including independent suspension systems, for United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) MRAP vehicles in the third and fourth quarters of 2010. The units will then ship to Letterkenny Army Depot for final assembly and acceptance by the U.S. government. Spartan also continues to support MRAP prime contractors and the U.S. government by providing spare/replacement parts for many of the MRAP vehicles built at Spartan since 2005.
