Quality Manufacturing was established in 1962. The origin of the name "Quality" was part of the founding philosophy to establish and conduct business based upon the concept of providing quality products and service. Quality Manufacturing's primary business at that time was specialized in the field of contracting for the refurbishment of equipment for the U.S. Government. The majority of the refurbishment contracts for the U.S. Government included Airport type Fire Fighting Crash Trucks. The experience obtained through the refurbishment of these fire Fighting vehicles resulted in the establishment of a separate division dedicated to the manufacturing of fire apparatus for the U.S. fire service markets.
As a result of the success of Quality Manufacturing in the fire apparatus market the company was purchased by "Union City Body Corporation" during the mid 1980's. Union City Body Corporation made a significant investment in the addition of personnel, equipment, and technology which brought about major growth and prosperity for Quality Manufacturing. Even with the growth Quality Manufacturing has retained its original commitment to limit growth directly in proportion to its ability to maintain the highest possible quality standards.
In 1990 Quality Manufacturing, Inc. sold the refurbishing business to a group of local investors The departure from the refurbishing business allowed Quality Manufacturing, Inc. to become totally dedicated to the manufacturing of new fire apparatus for the U.S. and international market.
In February of 1992, Quality Manufacturing was purchased from Union City Body Corporation by the current officers of Quality Manufacturing, Inc. The new ownership has allowed further expansion of the product line and product marking. This expansion includes the establishment of new dealerships throughout the U.S. and foreign markets. New ownership and a rededication to the original philosophy of "Quality Products and Service" has and will continue to bring prosperity to Quality Manufacturing, Inc. and its valued customers during the 1990's and beyond.
In August of 1997 Quality Manufacturing was purchased by Spartan Motors, Inc. of Charlotte, Michigan. The original philosophy continues and improves. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
