Spartan Light Metal Products, an advanced manufacturer of custom die cast aluminum and magnesium products for the automotive and consumer products markets, announced plans to expand with a new manufacturing facility in Mexico, Missouri. The expansion is expected to add more than 100 new jobs to the region over the coming years.
“Spartan’s expansion is great news for the city of Mexico and great news for our state,” said Missouri Governor Eric Greitens. “Missouri businesses are growing again. We were proud to work with the city to get this deal done. Our top priority is more jobs for Missouri families.”
The new state-of-the-art facility is expected to help meet customers’ demands to increase fuel economy by using lighter weight materials and will position Spartan Light Metal Products to participate in the growing electrification movement in propulsion systems. The company expects to break ground in early 2018.
“We look forward to supporting our customers in their vehicle lightweighting initiatives,” said Bruce Breitzman, CEO of Spartan Light Metal Products. “It is also a great opportunity to leverage the talents of our Spartan associates. The time is now to take another step forward in strengthening Spartan Light Metal Products for the future. We appreciate the support of our customers, suppliers, the Mexico community, our associates and the Jubel family.”
“The City of Mexico, Audrain County and Progress Mexico work every day on encouraging business growth in our community and we are very pleased that Spartan has chosen Mexico, Missouri, to expand and locate their new manufacturing facility,” said Mayor Chris Miller. “Spartan has been a great corporate partner for over 20 years and this additional investment in our community demonstrates their continued commitment for many years to come”.
