Rosey is about 35-40% of Spartan
Rosey is around 35-40% of Spartans firetruck chassis. Smeal is under 100 Spartans a year. Most others are smaller. Rosey is around 325-375 a year. Most of the General production (65%+) goes on Spartan. Around a similar overall number go to Central. But, Central produces more so the percentage is lower with them. Rosey is by far the biggest Spartan chassis customer. Call Spartan and ask. Smeal,Crimson, and Marion are the next big three. Then the regional builders like 4Guys and Alexis. KME is now offering as well. Rosey is by far the biggest. Tim Johnson was the Spartan rep for the account until July when he went to work for Rosey as a regional. Look for more Spartan regionals to leave soon. Some are complaining about management.
The real question is what heppens if LaFrance turns to selling chassis like they did right after Hebe took over in 95'. The same story could unfold in Clintonville as well. Most people in the industry expect Seagrave to go under. Hope it does'nt happen. Love the old girl of the fire service even though I don't sell for them.
In the interest of full disclosure:
I am a sales rep selling trucks on spartan chassis. I also am a shareholder of Spartan Motors stock.
