The Korte Company has recently begun construction on a 135,000 square foot die cast manufacturing facility for Spartan Light Metals in Mexico, Missouri. The new state of the art facility will utilize lighter weight materials to meet the auto industry’s increasing demand for lightweight, more fuel efficient structural components. The move will help solidify Spartan Light Metal Products’ position as a leader in the growing electric propulsion systems market.
The project marks The Korte Company’s second project for Spartan Light Metals. In 2017, The Korte Company completed a design-build 92,000 square foot expansion for the company in Sparta, Illinois.
When complete in 2019, the facility will have the capacity for four large tonnage die cast machines, 3,500 ton or larger with the ability to cast either Magnesium or Aluminum.
