The Shyft Group, formerly known as Spartan Motors, began in 1975, when a small group of automotive engineers drew on their collective expertise and launched their own company outside of Lansing, Michigan. Their formula was simple: build a high-quality custom product for a specific consumer, sell it at a fair price, and provide great service over the life of the vehicle.

Over time, much has changed, including our name, but those pillars of innovation and customer-centricity live on.

Today, with thousands of dedicated associates across multiple states and campuses, The Shyft Group and its family of brands continues to engineer, assemble, and service vehicles and upfits to meet our customers’ unique needs, still charges a fair price for its high quality, long-lasting products, and always provides a higher level of service and support after the sale.
