Manufacturers History: S&S Fire Apparatus Company was founded in 1983. S&S primarily built water tenders, pumpers and brush trucks on commercial or custom chassis. Most deliveries appear to have been to fire departments in the Midwestern and Eastern US. The Bureau of Land Management was a significant customer buying a large number of wildland engines and water tenders. In the early 2000s the U.S. Forest Service also bought a number of wildland engines.
The company was sold to SNF Industries of Texas in 2005. In 2008 S&S celebrated its 25th year in business. At that time it employed about 80 people, and was building 120-150 pieces of apparatus per year.
Spartan Motors was formed in Charlotte, Michigan in 1976 by four engineers from the bankrupt Diamond-REO truck company. Spartan designed and manufactured a custom cabover chassis for fire services. Like Duplex, Hendrickson, Oshkosh and Pemfab, Spartan supplied chassis to apparatus body manufacturers – this market niche falls between custom apparatus built entirely by apparatus manufacturers (like Pierce or E-One) and commercial chassis rigs like Ford, Freightliner or GMC. Unlike their specialty competitors, Spartan would build chassis to end-user specifications, enabling smaller body manufacturers to offer a custom apparatus option. The Spartan chassis was popular, and apparatus manufacturers throughout North America offered (and continue to offer) Spartan-chassis apparatus.
In the 1980s, Spartan also began to build custom chassis for motor homes.
Early models included the CFC, CFG and CFH chassis. The Gladiator was introduced in 1983 and continues to be one of Spartan’s most popular models. Other models introduced in the 1980s and 1990s included the Diamond, the Monarch, the rear-engine Silent Knight and the GT-One. The Metro Star and Advantage were introduced in the latter part of the 1990s and the Metro Star remains in production today.
