Our story

Started in 2007 by a few friends who got together and decided that they wanted to be part of something where the customer was at the heart of what they did. They wanted a place where creativity was respected, a place where you had the chance to showcase your skills and learn new ones. A place where technology changed the way businesses worked, and that is how Spartez was born.
