Our core values


Spartan’s road to success is paved with the honesty and integrity of our people. How we interact with team members, partners, customers, vendors, and others reflects directly on our company and who we are as people. We owe it to our shareholders, our brand, and ourselves to behave ethically, to be upfront with those we work with, and to be proud of what we’re building together.

Do what’s right every time.


The road to a better Spartan runs through YOU. That means accepting responsibility for your actions, your performance and outcomes, and expecting the same from other team members. Passing the buck, ignoring problems, or turning a blind eye to issues or inconsistencies doesn’t help you, co-workers, or our company.

Own it.


We must trust one another to do what’s right, alert others when something is wrong, and push to continuously improve our product, process, and our company. Being trustworthy earns us the right to speak our minds and do what’s best for the business, our customers, and our shareholders, without questioning our integrity.

With trust comes empowerment.


The road to continuous improvement relies on individuals with specific roles that work together to make our end product and our company’s path forward the best it can be. Always asking how we can make the performance of our department, our lines, and ourselves more effective. Let’s work every day to ensure that Spartan delivers products that pave the way to better rescues, better adventures, and better efficiencies for those we serve.

Improving never ends.
