History

Allied Specialty Vehicles was formed in 2010 from the merger of four companies owned by American Industrial Partners: Collins Industries, E-One, Halcore Group, and Fleetwood Enterprises.[4]

In September 2010, ASV acquired the assets of ambulance manufacturer Road Rescue from Spartan Motors.[5][6]

In 2013, three acquisitions were announced. SJC Industries was purchased in May 2013 from Thor Industries. It is a manufacturer of ambulances under the brand names McCoy Miller and Marque.[7][8]

A week later, it was announced that ASV was purchasing the RV assets of Navistar International, which include Monaco, Holiday Rambler, R-Vision and the Beaver and Safari brands.[9][10]

In August 2013, ASV announced the purchase of Thor Industries' bus businesses, including the ElDorado Motor Corp., National Coach, Champion Bus, and Goshen Coach companies.[11]

Allied Specialty Vehicles changed its name to REV Group in November 2015.[12]

In April 2016, REV Group acquired fire truck manufacturer Kovatch Mobile Equipment Corp.[13]

In January 2017, the company went public with ticker symbol REVG.[14][15]

In 2017, REV Group acquired Ferrara Fire Apparatus[16][17] and Renegade RV.[18]

In January 2018, REV Group acquired California-based Lance Camper. Lance was founded in 1965 and manufactures truck campers and towable RVs.[19]

In February 2020, REV Group announced its acquisition of Spartan ER, a subsidiary of Spartan Motors.[20]

In May 2020, REV Group sold its shuttle bus brands Champion, Federal Coach, World Trans, Krystal Coach, ElDorado and Goshen Coach to Forest River. [21]
