What do you like about doing business in Ohio?Being an Ohio-based company, we find it extremely enjoyable to help our neighbors solve their maintenance challenges using products that were not only produced here, but may be using ingredients that were grown in the state as well.
Description of business: Over fifty years ago, three young entrepreneurs had a dream to create a chemical company to meet the needs of maintenance professionals. In May of 1956, the founders, E.T. Swigart, Jr., Nord L. Simpson, and C.D. Werner, began living their dream by starting Spartan Chemical Company, Inc. Over the years, while employees have grown in number, their contributions have been innumerable. Commitment to high standards, quality products, supported by unparalleled customer service are philosophical cornerstones embraced by Spartan personnel.
Spartan led the National Green Cleaning movement with a line of environmentally preferable products called Green Solutions. It was this line that started the "green revolution" in an industry previously dominated by yesterday's technology. Continuing that proactive movement, Spartan expanded the environmentally preferred concept with BioRenewables®, based on technology that promotes using renewable resources.
Today, Spartan is a leading global manufacturer of chemical specialty maintenance products and industrial degreasers. Looking into the future, Spartan will continue to create, manufacture, and sell products to meet the ever-changing needs of the maintenance industry, all the while upholding its dedication to quality, cost-effective products. The faces will continue to change, but their resolve and dedication to growth, ingenuity, service, and integrity will be constant.
