January 13, 2021
CHARLOTTE, Mich. — The Shyft Group, a manufacturer of commercial fleet and specialty vehicles, plans to hire hundreds of full-time employees over the next three years at its plant in mid-Michigan. The Lansing State Journal reports the planned expansion at the company’s Charlotte plant comes as demand for parcel delivery vehicles continues to rise amid the coronavirus pandemic. Chad Heminover, president of Shyft Fleet Vehicles & Services, says the new jobs that will be added will be in the hundreds but the total number remains undetermined. The Shyft Group was known as Spartan Motors before it changed its name last year following the sale of its emergency response business.
