The IQ Brew: Spartan Manufacturing

Stretch your legs from all of those Zoom meetings and join us at Spartan Manufacturing for an in-person event! Spartan Manufacturing LLC, a Richardson IQ company, provides oil & energy industrial filtration equipment and has a patent for their design. With the recent economic slowdown on the oil and gas industry, Spartan got innovative and shifted its production to building modern shipping container homes, offices, and greenhouses.

Come learn about the challenges Spartan has faced these past few months and take a tour of the new shipping containers on display. Spartan is located at 715 N. Glenville Dr #430, Richardson, TX 75081 and you can park behind the building near the shipping containers.

9:00am – Arrival and Shipping Container Tour
9:30am – Speaker Eric Benavides, CEO Spartan Manufacturing
10:00am – Conclude Event

We will be outside in the back of the building with plenty of room for social distancing. For the safety and comfort of others, please wear a mask.

If you are more comfortable viewing the shipping containers on your own, our speaker Eric Benavides will be there early and you are welcome to come by before 9am. Just let us know so we can inform Eric!

Leave your house a little early and head to Communication Neighborhood Cooperative at 514 Lockwood Drive to grab your coffee to-go. Let the barista know you are with the Richardson Innovation Quarter and your coffee will be free!

The event is finished.
