About Us

The Shyft Group is the North American leader in specialty vehicles — vehicles that move people, products, and services where they’re needed most.

Our innovative organization is comprised of nine distinct brands in last-mile delivery and other specialty vocations, which focus on building chassis, bodies, and providing upfit services that are purpose-built for every customers’ specific needs. We do this through leveraging our Work Driven Design™ consultative process — where we listen to the end user and deliver what is needed to get the job done.

Our customers include first-to-last mile delivery, infrastructure segment companies across vocations, government entities, and those in the utility and RV industries.

We have always believed in customer-centric operations built from long-standing commitments to quality, execution, innovation, and operational excellence. This proven recipe for success is born from our values and built from almost 50 years of industry expertise, yielding a unique business acumen that drives our organization’s strategic vision.


At Shyft, we believe the transportation industry has a responsibility to create a more environmentally sustainable future for all.

This belief is inherent in our values — Honesty & Integrity, Accountability, Trust, and Performance Excellence — and an integral element of how we operate our business.

This report contains forward-looking statements, including our commitments, targets, and other statements that are not historical facts. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties and are not guarantees of future performance. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such statements are set forth in our SEC filings. All forward-looking statements are based on management’s current assumptions, estimates, and projections.


To support clear communication surrounding our values, we have implemented robust data gathering and reporting, using the investor focused disclosure standards developed by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). Working with investor stakeholders, SASB has developed standardized disclosures on the industry-specific issues prioritized by investors.

Our disclosures within the SASB framework were prepared with the goal of developing future qualitative and quantitative reporting to align with industry best practices, and our values as an organization. While there is still much work to be done, we believe that all Shyft stakeholders, including our investors, employees, customers, and the communities in which we do business, will benefit from our advancement in these material Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) areas.

Our Board provides guidance, insight, and oversight as to the strategy, initiatives, and management’s performance in achieving ESG goals. Against this backdrop, we have, with the assistance of outside ESG expertise, performed an assessment of key indicators and engaged with our internal and external stakeholders on ESG topics to inform the tenets of our ESG strategy.

Our key ESG tenets include:

  • Protecting the Environment
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
  • Health & Safety
  • Philanthropy
  • Governance & Ethics

This is our inaugural Sustainability Report (“Report”), which presents a materiality-based approach to disclosure based on fiscal 2021 data, unless otherwise noted. This report was prepared in accordance with the SASB standard. In compiling this Report, in 2021 and 2022, we completed a SASB materiality assessment. The assessment began by examining a range of key stakeholders — including investors, customers, employees, and ESG rating organizations. We then reviewed the recommended ESG topics for inclusion in the sustainability disclosure, rating methodologies, investment decision-making, goal setting, and strategy.

Letter From The CEO

Dear Shareholders,

Within the past two years, our world has changed substantially. Reeling from a global pandemic, supply chain constraints, and labor shortages — multiple challenges existed for almost every industry, and the Shyft Group was not immune. Yet through resiliency, dedication, and a strong commitment to our values, our organization enjoyed great success in 2021, laying the groundwork for exceptional opportunity in 2022 and beyond. Underlying the success we’ve enjoyed is a strong commitment to creating a better, more sustainable and inclusive future — a key priority for our organization.

As such, I am pleased to share our first Sustainability Report, which marks another step forward in our Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) progression, focusing on the core activities that drive our ESG commitment.

We know innovation — and electrification — are essential for ushering in the future our employees, customers, shareholders, and communities expect. Indeed, announcing our newest go-to-market brand, Blue Arc™ EV Solutions in March of 2022, is proof positive that we are investing in sustainable innovation to not only support our customers and their sustainability goals, but to better serve our communities, and our planet.

Following the launch of Blue Arc™, we debuted our Power Cube™ and EV delivery vehicle, in Washington, D.C., to members of Congress and governmental agencies, highlighting our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and assist fleet operators in a range of industries to achieve their long-term environmental goals. This, coupled with pre-orders of our all-electric delivery van and a midyear 2023 start of production date, provides us with confidence that this innovation will indeed prove itself as our flagship of sustainable innovation.

The Shyft Group is energized for the future — not only for the business opportunities that lie ahead with new customers, acquisitions, and innovations, but to continue focusing on our people, who are the bedrock of our success. Fostering an inclusive, diverse culture that harnesses employees’ individual and unique talents, experience, spirit, and passion is essential to not just the future success of this organization, but a fundamental value of the Shyft group leadership team.

Building on the strong governance foundation detailed on our website and in our regulatory filings, we incorporated and utilized the SASB framework as part of this disclosure to further enhance transparency. This Report begins our commitment to regularly communicating our ESG actions and performance. While we are pleased to share our sustainability story in this Report, our work is far from over.


Underlying the success we’ve enjoyed is a strong commitment to creating a better, more sustainable, and inclusive future — a key priority for our organization.”


As we continue building on this solid foundation, we remain focused on fostering long-term value for our shareholders, strengthening relationships with our customers and communities, and supporting our employees. In doing so, we can deliver a more sustainable, purpose-driven future for all. We appreciate your confidence and support.

Stakeholder Approach to ESG

In 2021 and 2022, we developed an ambitious ESG strategy to align with the broader transformation of our organization, following the divestiture of the emergency response business and rebranding of our company from Spartan Motors to the Shyft Group.

Our executive team recognized the importance of embedding environmental and social priorities within our business operations and approved an enhanced and modernized ESG strategy, intended to promote further advancement in sustainability, diversity, equity and inclusion, and increased transparency. Our senior management team develops our ESG strategic direction in partnership with the ESG working group, led by a cross-functional team of executives representing Communications, Environmental, Health and Safety, Finance, Human Resources, Investor Relations, Operations, and Legal. Against this backdrop, the six tenets of our strategy include: (1) Protecting the Environment, (2) Supply Chain Management, (3) Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, (4) Health & Safety, (5) Philanthropy, and (6) Governance & Ethics.

The materiality matrix in this report shows the relative weight of different topics from two perspectives. The X axis shows how important we believe an issue is considered by the industry, while the Y axis, informed by our assessment, shows the topic's importance to external stakeholders. We then conducted a deeper analysis to prioritize these issues starting with an assessment of a selection of highly rated ESG industry peers and also examined the methodologies of leading ESG investor raters and institutional investors. We reviewed their strategic selection of material ESG topics for inclusion in their sustainability disclosure, rating methodologies, investment decision-making, goal setting and strategy. From this research, we calculated an overall materiality score for each ESG topic to help focus our strategy and disclosures in this report. Using this quantitative model, Shyft identified the 12 highest scoring topics as most material to the business.

Protecting the Environment

We believe the transportation industry has a responsibility to create a more environmentally sustainable future for all, making environmental stewardship an integral focus for our organization. Beyond simply complying with increased regulations and stricter environmental standards, it is our duty to play an active role in this transformation. Highlights of our environmental sustainability efforts and accomplishments include:

  • Improving the operation of our facilities through the efficient use of energy including a commitment to a reduction in carbon emissions, waste, and water.
  • Increasing the amount of green energy and recycling in our facilities, and the continued implementation of waste disposal practices.
  • Promoting electricity, natural gas, and water efficiency measures across our supply chain.
  • Compliance with all applicable environmental laws governing the use, storage, discharge, and disposal of hazardous material.
  • Development of products and solutions in the electric vehicle space to support our customers’ carbon neutral goals and a more environmentally sustainable future.

When considering the impact of our Environmental Stewardship, we take a global approach to our operational footprint and the impact of our practices at each operating location and the combined impact across our operations. Locations that emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from coating operations are permitted in accordance with local regulatory requirements. We are also continuously evaluating and designing innovative ways to boost efficiency, such as installing high-efficiency laser fabrication machines, press break and CNC machines, test bay water recirculation technology, paint curing ovens, and new cardboard recycling compactors; implementing engineering changes to reduce part weight; holding kaizen events to eliminate waste; and upgrading practices at our facilities, such as through the use of LED lighting, speed doors for heat conservation, and paint preparation processes.

When reviewing our operations, we consider activities based on their actual or potential impact on the environment, specifically land, air, water, or a combination thereof:
  • Land

    Many of our operations and processes create scrap material, including steel, aluminum, wood, and cardboard which is diverted from landfills through recycling programs. Some of our processes, such as paint, may create hazardous waste which is disposed of in compliance with all applicable regulations.

  • Air

    We view the impact of our operations on air quality based on a broad view both upstream and downstream, in addition to the direct impact from our operating activities.

  • Water

    The primary use of water is within our paint operations as well as in water test operations for vehicle bodies we produce.

Innovation is key to Environmental Stewardship. In the specialty vehicle industry, innovation and electrification run in tandem. Unable to find a viable EV chassis option in the market, we decided to build our own leveraging nearly 50 years of experience in custom chassis production and last-mile delivery. We announced our newest goto-market brand, Blue Arc™ EV Solutions, featuring a full ecosystem of end-to-end electric-powered solutions, created to meet sustainability and performance goals. The ecosystem includes:

  • An industry-first commercial grade purpose-built EV chassis, adaptable to last-mile delivery, work truck, mass transit, recreational vehicle, and other emerging EV markets;
  • A fully reimagined from the ground up commercial grade, all-electric, purpose-built, Class 3 delivery walk-in van;
  • A fully portable, remote-controlled charging station.

We are well positioned to lead in this space and expect to be in production with our all-electric, Class 3 delivery walk-in van mid-year 2023.

Supply Chain Management

The Shyft Group is committed to customer satisfaction and delivering the highest level of personal service. We work closely with our suppliers to reach these goals. We strive to procure high-quality products and services that are delivered on time to support daily operations, but are also innovative and add value to the Shyft Group product lines. Selected criteria for suppliers that are important to us include:

  • Consistent Quality
  • Cost Competitiveness
  • Customer Service Support
  • Environmental Protection
  • Excellent Communication
  • Innovation & Technical Competence
  • Integrity
  • On-Time Delivery
  • Process Control & Capacity
  • Warranty

We continually seek to partner with suppliers that share our four core values. Therefore, a proactive approach to supplier onboarding, combined with ongoing assessments of potential supply chain risks is extremely important to managing a responsible supply chain. Additionally, we consider the upstream and downstream impacts of our operations. Upstream, we use electricity which may be generated by a variety of providers using various fuel sources. Certain locations conduct regulatory permitted coating operations, which generate VOCs and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) below permitted limits.

Downstream, we produce vehicles that are used in the transportation and delivery space, which generally use fuel for combustion engines while our electric vehicles (EV) use electricity generated by local providers. Internally, our production facilities use natural gas for heating, and LP gas and electric for powering forklifts. In addition, the operation of paint booths or welding cells may create VOCs or other emissions that are mitigated through a variety of methods required by regulations. We are also constantly improving our operations to proactively identify more efficient and effective ways to ensure both the long-term success and the continued vitality of the communities in which we do business. We currently maintain, and require our suppliers to comply with, robust supplier policies including a formal robust supplier policies including a formal Supplier Code of Conduct, a Conflict Minerals Policy, and a Global Supplier Standards Manual.

The Quality Management System at the Shyft Group drives consistent results and reliability in the products that we build. We operate a Quality Management System which aligns with the requirements of ISO 9001. The Shyft Group has one location certified to ISO 9001:2015. The implementation ensures we meet the needs of our internal and external customers through training our employees to understand the requirements of our Quality Management System. Through our modernization efforts, Shyft is helping to do its part in offsetting the negative impacts of climate change.

Social Responsibility

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Investing in our teams has never been more important. Exceptional people working together are the foundation for our success, and we are dedicated to growing our people through professional and personal development opportunities, which includes a focused approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. We also believe that investing in local communities to create social and economic outcomes is at the heart of generating social impact. We believe in giving back to the communities in which we live and work.

Respect for human rights is a fundamental value of the Shyft Group. We strive to respect and promote human rights in accordance with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in our relationships with our employees, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. We are also a member of the United Nations Global Compact, which seeks to encourage businesses worldwide to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anticorruption, and take actions that advance societal goals. Our aim is to help increase the enjoyment of human rights in the communities where we operate. Our actions to protect human rights and promote social responsibility are aimed to protect our most important asset — our people.

DEI is vital to Shyft. Our commitment starts with our goal of attracting, retaining, and developing a workforce that is diverse in background, knowledge, skill, and experience. Shyft is committed to providing equal employment opportunities, and makes all recruiting, payment, performance, and promotion decisions based on merit, without discrimination on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, age, family status, ethnic origin, nationality, disability, or religious belief. We believe people are the most critical component in our continued success, and we strive to attract high-performing talent.

Inclusion is the way we treat and perceive all differences. We are focused on creating an inclusive and high-performance culture where all forms of diversity are seen as real value for Shyft. Throughout the year, we reach out to our workforce to reinforce and celebrate the importance of diversity and inclusion, including by directly expressing our support for International Women’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Juneteenth, Veterans Day, Pride Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, and International Day for Persons with Disabilities.

As a certified MVAA Veteran-Friendly Employer, the Shyft Group is committed to helping veterans gain and retain employment in a company where they can be proud to work. We work hard to understand our service men and women, then help to bridge the gap between military and civilian careers. Our DEI activities are shaped and directed by our DEI Leadership Council that we formed in 2021. Notably, we established our 5-year DEI roadmap with a goal to foster an even more inclusive culture and diverse environment within all areas of Shyft.

As of December 31, 2021, we employed approximately 3,800 employees and contractors. Approximately 13% of our total workforce consists of contractors, including all personnel at our Saltillo, Mexico, operation. Compared to 2020, we decreased the percentage of contractors in our workforce by approximately 50%. This decrease reflected a strategic change in our talent acquisition strategy of direct hiring instead of contract relationships. Of our total workforce, 92% reside in the United States, with the remaining 8% in Mexico. Our production processes leverage a combination of skilled tradespeople and high-touch assemblers working in body, electrical, mechanical, paint, and assembly operations.

As a team, our employees and contractors put Shyft’s core values into action, while executing on key growth initiatives to maintain long-term sustainable growth. We strive to create a workplace of choice to attract, retain, and develop top talent to achieve our vision and deliver shareholder results.

We believe that investing in local communities to create social and economic outcomes is at the heart of generating social impact. We believe in giving back to the communities in which we live and work. We support and empower our employees’ volunteer efforts in their communities. Through strategic nonprofit partnerships, volunteerism, and philanthropy, our corporate responsibility is focused on contributing to the creation of a better world. Notably, direct donations to local charitable organizations in the communities where our business operates and our employees live. In 2021, Shyft donated $125,000 to the Eaton Community Health Collaborative in support of the greater Charlotte, Michigan, community, where the company got its start and continues to operate. The donation, made on behalf of The Shyft Group Foundation, completes a $1 million declaration of support that spans a decade. Beneficiaries for the full pledge have included Sparrow Eaton Hospital’s AL!VE wellness center, under previous ownership, and now the Eaton Community Health Collaborative. Shyft strives to use our capabilities, reach, and resources to make a lasting difference in the world. We believe it is our responsibility to respect human rights in our operations, including, among other things, by opposing human trafficking and the exploitation of children. Going forward, we will look to partner with nonprofit organizations that work to decrease the number of individuals facing economic barriers and make our communities reflections of our commitments and values.

We are committed to achieving excellence in our corporate governance practices. We emphasize a culture of accountability and conduct in our business in a manner that is fair, ethical, and responsible to earn the trust of our stakeholders. Our comprehensive corporate governance policies and structures foster accountability and transparency for our management team.

We feature an employee ethics and compliance hotline on our website, which is operated by an independent third-party, where stakeholders can voice their ethics concerns. We continue to explore opportunities to increase accessibility to reporting options, and improve the effectiveness of our responses to reported ethical concerns.

Shyft’s Board of Directors is comprised of a majority of independent directors (eight of nine) as defined by our listing standards and the Board’s Corporate Governance Principles. For more information on our Board of Directors or formal policies please visit the website: https://theshyftgroup.com/about-us/policies-charters/

The Governance and Sustainability Committee oversees structural governance and composition matters including recommending to the Board the allocation of oversight responsibilities to the Board committees. We recently changed the name of the Corporate Governance & Nominating Committee to the Governance and Sustainability Committee and expanded its responsibilities to reflect the committee’s broader oversight regarding our ESG initiatives. In addition to the leadership of senior management on these topics, the charters of our Board committees detail the importance of these issues. The Human Resource and Compensation Committee Charter details the committee’s role in the oversight of our DEI initiatives and commitment to human capital management. We recognize that effectively managing enterprise risks is critically important to the long-term success of our business.

Management is responsible for our company’s day-to-day risk management activities. Shyft relies on a comprehensive risk management process to aggregate, monitor, measure, and manage risks. While we exercise oversight, we do not have full control over our supply chain nor the suppliers we do business with; however, we continually seek to partner with suppliers that share common values and a shared commitment to our ESG objectives. The Audit Committee oversees risks relating to financial reporting related to internal controls and cybersecurity. Our IT team works 24/7, partners with leading security and technology providers, and uses a combination of industry tools and in-house innovative technologies to help protect our stakeholders against cybercriminals. We leverage the latest encryption configurations and cybertechnologies on our systems, devices, and third-party connections and further review vendor encryption to ensure proper information security safeguards are maintained. Our Shyft team members are responsible for complying with our cybersecurity standards and complete training to understand the behaviors and technical requirements necessary to keep information secure. We also require ongoing practice and education for team members to recognize and report suspicious activity.
