Spartan Motors will build a new manufacturing plant on its Charlotte campus next year.  This expansion is expected to create an estimated 55 new jobs.

The 85,000 square foot facility will manufacture and assemble diesel delivery trucks according to Pat Sall, a senior project manager with Spartan Motors.

Sall told officials last month the company plans to tear down the existing 100,000 square foot structure on the property and spend $5.5 million on the new plant's construction.

The expansion will come with tax incentives from the city.  The Lansing State Journal has more!
