Spartan Motors Chassis Inc. has been awarded a subcontract order from BAE Systems to support the production of 32 Armored Utility Vehicles under the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) program. The Michigan-based custom chassis manufacturer will supply and integrate key chassis components for the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) MRAP vehicles for delivery beginning in March and continuing through July. Spartan also will support suspension upgrades for enhanced mobility of more than 200 MRAP variants previously produced by BAE Systems. In addition to this award, Spartan continues its support of MRAP prime contractors and the U.S. government by providing spare/replacement parts for many of the MRAP vehicles built at Spartan since 2005.
