About Us

In 1973 Spartan Fire & Emergency Apparatus, Inc. was established in Spartanburg, South Carolina. At that time Spartan Fire began their franchise for sales and service of Pierce Fire/Emergency Vehicles covering the state of South Carolina. When we established our agreement with Pierce there were only three (3) Pierce units in service throughout South Carolina, today there are more than 500. This success is directly related to the long term relationships we have developed and continue to cherish.

Spartan Fire began as a “one-horse” operation in 1973 with Bob Fore as “chief cook and bottle washer”. With his dedication and hard work he began developing the relationships that we still cherish today. Through the years with the continued support from the fire service in South Carolina we have been able to grow our business and develop new relationships. This growth has allowed us the capability to provide our customers a level of performance they expect. This dedication to providing a high level of performance stems from the traditional values that were instilled in us by Bob Fore, in memory of our “chief cook and bottle washer”.

At Spartan Fire we believe the strength of an organization begins with its people and the tools provided for them to perform. Our staff is trained, experienced and willing to help Departments with solutions to their apparatus sales or service needs. Sales Representatives are available for Department visits to provide professional assistance in customizing your apparatus needs. Our Pierce certified Service Manager, Parts Manager and Technicians are available at our service facility in Roebuck, SC (Spartanburg) or in the field with one of our fully equipped mobile service vehicles. In either situation we are equipped and ready to respond. We welcome the opportunity to earn and retain your business.
