Sparton Corporation specializes in creating gear and products for the US Navy. In fact, they are actually one of the leading brands when it comes to producing sonobuoys for the US Navy. Originally based in Schaumburg, Illinois, they now plan to soon relocate their headquarters to De Leon Springs, Florida. The reason behind this is because they have a strong presence in the area and benefit greatly from local talent. As a result, the company will be able to utilize the talent of the Florida workforces. This will also mean new opportunities for De Leon Springs locals.
From Area Development Magazine:
“The relocation is a reflection of Sparton’s belief in and commitment to Volusia County, and its diverse and highly talented community of professionals and skilled workforce.” […]
“Sparton has had a significant presence in De Leon Springs for more than three decades and we have always been impressed with the talent, expertise and dedication of the workforce in our De Leon Springs facility. Several of our employees have been here for more than 30 years and we are proud to formally recognize De Leon Springs as our headquarters.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
