The Spark Family

It’s Manufacturing Day 2015 – an annual salute to the companies and people dedicated to manufacturing right here in the United States.

In-house anodizing


MFG DAY is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges                    –



Spark R&D is humming right now with autumn being one of the busiest times of the year for us. Orders for this season’s gear are shipping out while we are still producing products up to 20 hours a day, seven days a week.

Machine Shop at SparkFor nearly 10 years, we have been proudly manufacturing our splitboard bindings and accessories right here in Bozeman, MT USA. At Spark R&D we design, 3D scan, 3D print, CNC machine, CNC turn, bend, punch, tumble, anodize, injection mold, print, laser engrave, assemble, inspect, test, package and ship all in house.

We are fortunate to do all of this with a view of the Bridger Mountains from our shop. We have an amazing team of skilled employees, mostly splitboarders, who work tirelessly to produce a product that they not only stand behind but often stand on – i.e. they ride the products they make. Many of our employees are students or graduates of Bozeman’s own Montana State University.

In the warehouse!We all feel very lucky to work in manufacturing and to do it an industry that we feel so passionate about. Here’s a huge shout out and high five to all of our Spark employees as well as all of our customers who support what we do. Thank you!

Happy Manufacturing Day!
