Nowicki will outline the logic-path and strategic underpinnings that have enabled the transformation of Spartan Motors from auto chassis supplier to specialty vehicle manufacturer of rides like this fire truck (pictured) that serves the Fire Department in Columbus, Ohio.

The presentation will also illustrate the company's compelling growth opportunities, portfolio diversification gains and reduced exposure to industry cyclicality, a company spokesman said.

The company's brand names are Spartan, Crimson Fire, Crimson Fire Aerials and Utilimaster.

Spartan employs about 1,800 people at facilities in Michigan, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Indiana, Florida and Texas. The company had sales of $481 million last year.
