Maintenance Platform Manufacturer Granted Montana’s Manufacturer of the Year Award

Spika Welding and Manufacturing, Inc., a manufacturer of aircraft maintenance platforms and maintenance support equipment used by military and commercial maintenance facilities in the United States and several foreign countries, has been awarded the inaugural Manufacturer of the Year award by the Montana Manufacturing Council.

Tom Spika, president of the Spika, attributes the company’s success to a commitment to corporate integrity above all else. “We place customer satisfaction above profit,” Spika said, “and I think our customers recognize that. We listen to their needs and promise to provide the best solution possible, not the easiest or most profitable.”

Katie Spika, marketing manager of the company, continued, “Given the other companies in Montana that are doing huge, complex projects, I was surprised that we were selected to receive this inaugural award. However, I think it is because we represent more than just our own company; we represent the typical small-scale Montana company that values its people and works hand in hand to promote the success of all manufacturing in the state.”
