CHARLOTTE, Mich., March 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Truck Body® ("Royal"), a go-to-market brand of Spartan Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPAR), reporting under the Spartan Chassis and Vehicles ("Spartan Specialty Vehicles") business unit, will display at The Work Truck Show (NTEA) in Indianapolis from March 3 to 6, for the first time in nearly two decades.
The most recent of the Company's acquisitions, Royal Truck Body, joined the Spartan Motors family under the Spartan Specialty Vehicles segment in September of 2019 and brings heavy-duty service truck bodies with more standard features than the competition to the organization's portfolio. Built in a myriad of vocation-centric configurations, Royal Truck Bodies are today constructed of A60 galvannealed steel and feature easy-to-access secure compartments and spaces built to last and enhance how tradespeople work. Royal Truck Bodies fit seamlessly onto new and reconditioned OEM truck chassis, including Ford, GM, and Ram.
"We are excited to showcase the Royal Truck Body lineup at this year's Work Truck Show as part of Spartan Motors' full commercial, fleet, and specialty vehicles product portfolio," said Steve Guillaume, President of Spartan Specialty Vehicles. "Royal's product lineup offers tradespeople high-performing, long-lasting truck bodies with more standard features than the competition. It's our attention to detail, vocation-centric body offerings, and emphasis on after-sale service and support that position us well for future growth in this space."
On display in the Royal Truck Body booth is an 8' service truck body, featuring heavy-duty double-walled compartments, ample storage space, stainless steel tailgate guards, a key coded locking tailgate, and Royal's Fortress 5-Point Lock System for unmatched jobsite/lot security and protection – all standard options and included in the body's base price.
Also showcased in the booth at The Work Truck Show is the 11' severe duty Royal Truck Body, a bolstered version of the 8' body. The severe duty body comes standard with A60 galvannealed steel body construction, a 12-guage diamond plate steel floor, and 10-guage cross members. Additionally, it is structurally reinforced—from front to rear—to accommodate the addition of specialized equipment. The truck body also comes standard with an extended-life reinforced poly bed liner and a heavy-duty Class III recessed rear bumper to accommodate heavy workloads and ensure performance in extreme conditions.
