Spartan Awarded 2019 Excellent Quality Award
Spartan Light Metal Products has been recognized for the tenth straight year by Toyota in their annual supplier awards. The company’s Hannibal (MO) plant has been confirmed as one of a very select number of suppliers to achieve this honor.
Spartan Light Metal Products is a family owned, full service supplier of powertrain and structural aluminum and magnesium die cast products for the automotive and commercial vehicle markets. The company has more than 1,000 employees with manufacturing facilities located in in Hannibal (MO), Mexico (MO) and Sparta (IL). Spartan Light Metal Products is nearing completion of its fourth manufacturing facility placed next door to their existing Mexico, Missouri manufacturing plant. The facility, named “Spartan LMP” has recently taken delivery of the first of an initial four 4100 Ton highpressure die cast machines to support Structural and EV programs.
In order to qualify for this award, Spartan had to achieve the highest scores in four categories including quality and delivery performance. In the quality category, a score of less than 1% of the PPM target to qualify was achieved. Spartan were one of 19 suppliers to achieve this award in 2019.
