OUR MISSION

Spartan's mission is to help advance North American manufacturing, with its economic and social benefits, by empowering machine tool users to buy and maintain them more economically and easily.

 

OUR METHODS

We focus on machine types that major builders have largely ignored. That inattention has resulted in choices that are unjustifiably expensive, lacking in attributes, or weakly supported. In other words, inefficient markets. The Vertical Turning Lathe (VTL) category is one such example. Customers have long asked for a better-built machine at a still-reasonable price. Spartan fulfills that request in the form of Momentum’s MVL-series. It completely upends the status quo, in terms of how much you get for what cost.

We compliment such products with plentiful information to enable your selection process. After all, a “better deal” is valueless unless you can see it and act upon it. So we show you what constitutes value in each class of machine. We plainly illustrate which of those characteristics we provide. And we even help you assess how well or poorly other brands provide them, too.

And we hold ourselves extraordinarily accountable for your satisfaction. For example, we actually allow customers to directly post reviews of our products on our web site. Most brands would be too afraid that some customers are unhappy to do that. Not us. We know that all of our customers love our machines and our service.

Finally, we aren’t afraid to try a fresh method. For example, our Spartan DirectTM program allows bypassing distribution and saving up to 20% on our Sister-brand vertical machining centers (VMCs). While approach doesn’t suite purchasing more complex machines such as VTLs, it may be a better way to buy the simple ones. After all, shop owners regularly buy used VMCs (without warranty) from sources such as Craig’s List. So they should be able to buy a new one (backed by a full warranty) directly. This program is available in limited geography (Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and California) while we incubate the approach.

 

OUR HISTORY

Spartan is a spinoff from Associated Machine Tool Technologies (AmTTech), a distinguished distributor of machine tools serving the Texas market for nearly three-decades. AmTTech provides sales, service, and applications for machine brands including Samsung, Soraluce, WFL, SNK-Niigata, and YCM.

Jack Butts, AmTTech’s owner, had sought out and developed terrific machines to compliment the firm’s main brands. These products patched deficiencies in the lineups of major machine-tool builders.

Originally, AmTTech imported and promoted these only in its home market of Texas. Customers loved them, and AmTTech continually refined them to best serve the market. Then, in late 2014, Jack led an investor group to purchase one of the supplying factories, today named Momentum, LLC. As this business grew, it became clear that its scope should expand well beyond the state of Texas.

As business grew, AmTTech concluded that a machine OEM/importer should leverage its efforts via sales across all of North America, not only in Texas. Further, Doosan strongly encouraged putting the new products into a separate operating unit.

Thus, Spartan was born in early 2015, to provide these niche-filling products throughout North America, with the goal of improving choices for users of these machine niches, in terms of machine cost, capability, and support.
