  • Spartan Buying E-One?

    So am I late to the party on this rumor? We had a fire dealer call on us today and said Spartan was looking to buy E-One and merge it with Crimson. Any validity to this?

    Spartan just bought Classic, who was building tankers and such for E-One, until the sale. I could see where a rumor may have spread from that.

          The "beer can" can stand on its own history. E-One being bought out by Spartan, under Crimson or not, would be a good thing for both parties involved.

            So you think this would be good do you...Well when the other OEMs/Dealers besides Rosenbauer who's now going to build/offer their own cab and chassis abandon Spartan chassis's because of Spartan then being even more a direct competitor we'll see if the $s are there to fund these adventures...

            Spartan got to where it is by building quality innovative cab and chassis's for all the OEMs and Dealers for many years, However when they bought Crimson it was upsetting to those loyal but now even more so with the purchase of Classic which wasn't really a force in the industry anyway!

            So now we have Rosenbauer with their own cab and chassis and now ALF going to offer theirs to the OEM's/Dealers what's that going to do to Spartan's marketshare??

            Does anybody remember Carpenter School Buses and Road Rescue Ambulances that Spartan acquired and look what happened..

              Guess it woul be "GREEN". Go from 0.375" aluminum to 0.09"/0.13/0.19 aluminum. That's great. Look at all the diesel you'd save. And great for crew safety.

                  Do you really believe anyone in their right mind would buy an alf chassis with the recent history of that company?

                  Spartan is in a good place both financially and production wise. They have crimson producing a complete line of apparatus and just acquired Classic fire to produce a lower price spec type truck for that part of the marketplace similar to what pierce has done with their stock line.

                    • Do you have a link to the new Rosenbauer cab & chassis? I know this rumor has been floating for some time, but I've yet to see anything on paper or through industry contacts.
                    • Who in their right mind is going to buy an ALF cab and chassis these days?

                      What the hell does the color green have to do with anything?? If you think that E-One under Spartan and/or Crimson is going to short cut their own throats by using thinner materials, and less engineered ladders as a whole, you are an IDIOT.

                        So some got upset from Spartan taking over Crimson. Guess what... they are still making and selling the end product, and people are still buying them. So what is your beef???

                        If Rosey has established their market for a sole source cab and chassis, where is it???

                        You're obviously as clueless as NEIOWA.

                            I like what Spartan puts out on the Gladiator. They've been reliable, dependable, and get the job done.
