"We continue to experience growing demand for last mile delivery fleet vehicles, as more and more consumers are shopping online simultaneously increase the delivery of both essential and non-essential goods, direct to their doorstep," said Chad Heminover, President, Shyft Fleet Vehicles & Services. "As a result, we're looking for even more new team members to join us in Bristol and help us build the vehicles and upfits our customers need."

This is the third drive-thru hiring event to take place across The Shyft Group corporation in the last month in support of continuing demand for its vehicles.
