Job Description

Whether we clean drains for customers or a facility, a professional plumber’s time is money, and Spartan works its hardest to keep them going. Our machines and parts are built to perform better, be safer, and longer. We also serve our customers with expert, reliable help, including the industry's only in-field support team.
Spartan is one of North America's leading manufacturers of electro-mechanical and high-pressure water jet drain cleaning equipment.
Since 1943, Spartan has been leading the way in sewer and drain cleaning. We are dedicated to helping our customer work quickly, efficiently, and safely. This focus comes through in everything we do, from the equipment we make to the training we offer so customers can get the most out of our machines.
Spartan’s customer base is the professional user in a variety of industries including institutional, commercial, government municipalities, military, and many more.
Spartan has always been first in the industry when it comes to quality. Our machines are famous for their toughness and are designed to withstand the rigors of professional use day in and day out. Our cables are famous for their longer life and consistently superior quality. This is the kind of detail you can only expect from a manufacturer who understands the customer’s needs. Spartan knows because we have been there all along.

Our Territory Managers have a substantial background in the plumbing industry. Many are former drain cleaners or master plumbers themselves. The credibility and knowledge of having been in the trenches allow our Territory Managers a unique perspective on the equipment, and more importantly how to make money using it.
