Three people pose with trophy

Spartan Chemical Company recently received the SMA 2019 Navigator recognition during the Strategic Market Alliance Group’s annual conference in Salt Lake City.

SMA established the Navigator Award program in 2014 to recognize and celebrate superior performance by qualified suppliers in areas that are critical to mutual success. This year, Spartan Chemical was recognized for largest percentage of growth in purchases from qualified suppliers versus prior year. The category was judged both by reported data and in collaboration with SMA Member Distributors.  

“It’s such an honor to receive this award,” says John Swigart, president, Spartan Chemical Company. “The entire Spartan organization has been developed around the distributor. Everything we do from innovation, sales structure, to manufacturing is intended for one objective – to help our distributor partners grow their business.”

The Navigator recognition award was presented by Dick McGann, president, Strategic Market Alliance. Spartan was represented by Bryan Mangum, vice president of sales and Cali Sartor, vice president of marketing and advertising. 

Winning an SMA Navigator trophy is acknowledgement of extraordinary partnership and commitment to the Distributors of Strategic Market Alliance, in service to their end-user customers,” says McGann.
