Spartan Once Again Honored by Toyota

April 22, 2016

Spartan Light Metal Products, St. Louis, was recognized with an Excellent Quality Performance Award from Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America Inc. (TEMA) at its Annual Supplier Business Meeting.

Spartan Light Metal’s Hannibal, Missouri plant has been recognized for quality and delivery by Toyota for six consecutive years.  This year less than 5% of the supplier locations qualified for this award and only a handful of suppliers have consecutive years’ recognition. 

"Toyota collaborates with each of our supplier partners in order to build vehicles with the high quality, safety, and reliability standards that our customers expect,” said Robert Young, group vice president, TEMA purchasing, supplier engineering development, and cost planning.  “This event highlights our supplier partners’ commitment to continuous improvement and collaboration to build ‘ever better cars’ in North America.  

“We are pleased to recognize those in our supply base who exceed our high performance targets and thank them and their team members for their tremendous support and partnership.”

Spartan is a supplier of aluminum and magnesium custom die castings.
