Spartan Controls is a leading provider of industrial automation solutions in Western Canada. Founded in 1963, the company has a long history of supporting the local community and contributing to its economic development.
Unlike most companies within the automation space, Spartan is a Canadian, employee-owned company that empowers its employees, whom they proudly refer to as "Spartans," to think outside the box and do what it takes to meet the ever-changing needs of their customers.
Playing a vital role in the economic development of Grande Prairie, Spartan provides employment opportunities to a diverse workforce, many of whom are highly skilled technicians and engineers. These jobs offer competitive salaries and benefits and help support the local economy by putting money back into the community through employee spending.
"We’re an employee-owned, privately held company,” said Paul Naphin, General Manager, of the Peace Region. “Spartans live and work in 14 towns and cities across our territory and are encouraged to be active in the communities through various initiatives. We will continue to invest in the communities where Spartans and our customers live and work.”
In addition to creating employment opportunities, Spartan Controls also invests in employee development and offers a range of programs to stay up to date on the latest technologies and best practices. This not only benefits the Spartans themselves, but it also helps to ensure the company can provide the highest level of service to customers.
The economic impact of Spartan Controls goes beyond direct employment and training opportunities. The company plays a key role in helping local businesses improve their operations and increase efficiency by applying its portfolio of advanced technologies and services. In turn, this helps to drive economic growth and development in the community.
"Why Grande Prairie? Well, this is where the business is, and this is where it has been for quite a while,” said Paul. “As we forecast, this is where we feel the business is going to be moving forward. Being closer to our customers and the communities where we do business just makes sense."
Spartan Control's customer-centric approach and employee ownership model go hand-in-hand in helping the company work toward its vision of creating a sustainable modern world with innovative automation.
