From Small Beginnings
Spartan Peripheral Devices' parent company, Brosco Controls, was incorporated in 1969. It started as a controls contracting service company, and after receiving the Barber Colman (subsequently SIEBE, now Invensys) dealership for Quebec, the company expanded into new construction and became a major control contractor in Montreal and the surrounding area. The control projects ranged from office towers, hospitals, schools and airports throughout Quebec. For Brosco to maintain its competitive edge it started to incorporate different imported products from Europe into its installations. This subsequently led to introducing Cazzaniga control valves into North America. To appease the conflict of interest in the product lines, Spartan Peripheral Devices was incorporated in 1984. Spartan expanded the importation of products from other companies, such as Controlli, RBM, and MNG. Sales of these products reached such volumes that in 1991, we chose to relinquish the Barber Colman representation, and put all efforts into increased product manufacturing. Brosco Controls became inactive, and Spartan Peripheral Devices gradually built its own valve and actuator product line and completely eliminated imports by 1995. Our strong control contracting background and our on the job experiences through the years, enable Spartan to design all the products and manufacturing processes.
The name Spartan was selected for its simple, reliable, no-nonsense approach and its "spartan" control of energy in an energy conscience world.
