SPAR, Inc. has been providing quality Refractory products and precast service since our founding in 1982. It is our mission to provide high quality, specialized customer service and on-time delivery from one shipping point to our valued customers.  Our position in the Southeast United States puts us in a great location to easily serve much of the industry in America.  We believe the best way to achieve this goal is to stay focused on long term industries and for us to not get so big that we forget who pays the bills - the customers! Even if we now belong to Calderys, a much larger company, our credo remains the same and we continue to believe the adage that if you don’t take care of your customers the competition will.

At Spar, Inc, product quality and customer service are our driving factors.  In an effort to always improve what we offer the customer, Spar has undergone extensive training and completed ISO 9001:2008 certification!  We believe that this will help us to continue to offer the highest quality materials and best customer service experience on the market.  Without our loyal customers we would not be where we are today and we look forward to being able to offer an extra level of service that is unmatched!
