At SPK, we have spent the last 20 years applying information technology solutions for the benefit of engineering and manufacturing companies.
SPK and Associates began its mission in 1997. Founded by Steven Kling and Christine McHale, our experience is rooted in the technical and professional services organization at Hewlett-Packard, where both principals worked at the time. A complementary team, Kling’s passions lie with business strategy, customer support, and quality, while McHale’s expertise is in technical delivery, business strategy, and systems.
We truly found our purpose a year later. A client approached us to ask for help to improve their engineering MCAD systems network. Despite having limited experience with engineering applications, the client urged us to try it anyway as they had experienced our uncompromising approach to quality. The rest is history.
Since then, we have been entirely focused on the specialized technology needs of product and software development organizations. Today we also participate inside the product development effort, bringing our information technology expertise into the product teams to develop connected, IoT enabled products. IT is no longer about just supporting the product development effort — it is now part of product design.
SPK does not provide cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all engineering IT solutions. We know R&D from the ground up, allowing us to tailor our tech services to meet your needs. The end result is faster product release schedules, improved products, and better product quality.
We don’t work outside of your team. We work for and in your team, helping to free them of mundane, repetitive and distracting tasks. This lets them do what they do best — design and build better products.
SPK is passionate about donating a portion of our profits to both local and international charity projects. Each quarter we choose a specific project of interest to fund and support out of the profits of our company.
