“Our role doesn’t end at just selling the machines. Rather it starts after selling the machines”
Considering a major shift from conventional and unsafe builder hoist to a more safe and reliable hoists, Spartan has been at the forefront to ban the unsafe builder hoist form the beginning. Spartan, with its rich experience in manufacturing Hoists, have various models of Passenger and Material Hoists. The recently launched Hoists series are branded by ‘Aviator’ series of Passenger and Material Hoists. The weight carrying capacity varies from 500 kgs to 2 Ton. These machines are used at both medium and high rise structures. Rather Spartan’s multi-functional hoist replaces Tower Crane for Rebar Lifting application. Spartan’s Multi-functional hoist has an attachment of Rebar Carrying Attachment, which carries Rebar measuring 12 mtrs through horizontal rebar attachment. Spartan also plans to manufacture Twin cage hoists in coming year and is at design stage.
Spartan has always believed and delivered the best designs when it comes to construction equipment, not only in the aesthetics but also design as in durability, ruggedness and performance. Spartan boasts of around 30 in-house design professionals and are well equipped with all the necessary design software and tools like SolidWorks etc. Each machine is manufactured after rigorous design stage, where best machines of the world in the similar capacity is researched, studied and then designed to match the international standards. FEA analysis is carried out well in advance while designing, where machines are tested at various heights, at adverse climatic conditions through software. This gives a near to actual performance of the machine even before manufacturing. Each machine is designed considering its application, site conditions, safety, convenience, ease in operation etc.
Safety is of paramount importance in equipment working at heights. All our hoists come with Centrifugal Safety Device, which activates by centrifugal force and stops the hoist in case the hoist’s speed exceeds a specific speed limit. Many such safety factors are part of our every single machine. Control Panel in the hoist is one of the most advanced feature of our hoists you would hardly find in any of our competitor. It is provided with flash light for easy visibility, joystick for easy operation and emergency switches. The PLC functions cover lot of indicators like VFD Trip, Limit Switch Failure, Phase failure exit Door, Open Entry Door, Rack Search fault etc. The higher/ premium models also has a display screen, where the actual fault would be displayed for easy identification and repair. It is placed at a strategic position which would be easily viewed by the operator. These machines also come with mechanical lock and electrical sensors in critical areas like entry/ exit door, trap door, erection platform etc. This ensures hoist does not start if any door is left open. To add to these, overload alarm indicator is also provided as an option. All these safety features makes Spartan’s hoists more reliable and competitive.
Our role doesn’t end at just selling the machines. Rather it starts after selling the machines. Our main consumer is the operator. We believe in training the operator for the right use, application and performance of the machine. Our machine would perform well only if the operator maintains the machine well. We regularly conduct training programs at regular intervals after the machine is sold. We follow the principle of ‘Train the Trainer’. Our training staff is specialized and well trained in advance before he trains our customers’ team. Our specialized team trains the operator on the usage, application, maintenance and repair. Though we assure our immediate attendance on breakdown of the machine, we train them about how to use it efficiently so as to reduce the maintenance at the minimum. The training is conducted at both site and at office. Important training modules are shared with them wherever required like Dos and Don’ts of using Bar Bending and Bar Cutting machines etc.

We will be able to revolutionise and achieve growth slowly. We have a lot of expectations from the prospects ahead in terms of business for our machineries. Moreover, we are also expecting positive growth from high rise constructions which are gaining prominence not just in metros but also in tier-II cities. This also opens new growth avenues. We will be focusing on expanding our reach to these areas as well by expanding our dealership networks. We already have 8 branch offices. We are also focusing on our export business. We already have a dealer in Dubai and Sri Lanka and are getting good responses.
