The Fire Department Connection is proud to represent Spencer Manufacturing for the state of Indiana. Spencer Manufacturing, Inc. is a family-owned business located in South Haven, Michigan. The company began as a fabrication shop and started refurbishing fire apparatus and other large construction equipment in 1982. During the next three years, the focus of the company shifted entirely to the fire and rescue truck industry.
In the fall of 2003, the company moved into a new 26,000 square foot manufacturing facility that includes a state-of-the-art 20’ x 60’ down draft paint booth, a 5-ton overhead crane, an in-floor hoist, and a 30,000 gallon underground tank for pump testing. This impressive facility enables us to better serve our customers for any of their apparatus needs.
The current focus of the company is the production of new, custom-manufactured fire and rescue apparatus built on either custom or commercial chassis. Our flexibility and willingness to build each apparatus to fit the customer’s needs truly defines our goal of being a “custom-manufacturer.”
Our body construction is comprised of all aluminum extrusions and sheeting. We use products from all the major suppliers of fire pumps, poly-tanks and other components for the fire/rescue industry.
We are well known for the quality apparatus we produce. Many of our employees have current or past fire-fighting experience and their input is a valuable asset to our manufacturing process. Employees at Spencer Manufacturing, Inc. take great pride in their work and it shows in the finished quality of our productt
