KME History

KME’s origins are found in an auto repair shop started by John “Sonny” Kovatch in 1946. The business grew and branched into several auto and truck related businesses, including Kovatch Mobile Equipment, which built special-purpose military vehicles and airport refueling vehicles. In 1983, Kovatch Mobile purchased fire apparatus manufacturer Car-Mar, a builder of stainless steel pumpers and tankers.

In 1985, KME Fire Apparatus was formed after Kovatch acquired some of the assets of the former Hendrickson Mobile Equipment company. KME obtained and used Hendrickson’s distinctive chassis. The rights to the name Hendrickson’s Mobile Equipment and other parts of the assets were then sold off, hence HME. Around the same time KME also bought assets from Mack‘s fire apparatus manufacturing division, specifically their technology, inventory, machinery and apparatus body construction methods.[1] KME was producing pumpers when aerial products were added to the product line in 1987, using ladders from LTI and Fire Spire (Hahn).

In 1992, KME acquired the rights to Grumman Emergency Products‘ (Howe-Oren Roanoke Corp) line of aerial devices, the Aerialcat designs, manufacturing resources and other assets of the now closed division of the business.

In 1997 KME purchased the Walter Motor Truck Company, thus entering into the ARFF area of fire suppression. KME offers a whole line of sole-source apparatus, including pumpers, ladder trucks, rescue/command units, wildland, tanker, industrial and airport apparatus.

In April 2016, Kovatch Corporation announced the sale of its fire apparatus business to Florida-based REV Group.

Spartan History 

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 DuplexHendricksonOshkosh 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
