At the core of our business is almost 50 years worth of manufacturing experience, and an innate ability to make and retain meaningful customer relationships and quality products. We are comfortable being the superior supplier behind the scenes, but sometimes people want to know who we are.

My career began after graduating with a Business and Marketing degree from Maryville University, graduating summa cum laude. I traveled the entire United States for various clients including Verizon, Hallmark, Shell and the United States Mint. I lived in England shortly after for a tech start-up company which took me all over Europe and Ireland.  After a few months in Australia, I returned home in 2014 to begin work alongside Dave in the manufacturing of rolled rubber goods. It wasn’t long before we realized we wanted to build our own business on the foundation of helping our customers, and shortly came the dawn of Spire Technology Solutions.

David Fanning, Owner


My career began with Dependable Cork company in Whippany NJ, which took me to Trevor Wisconsin when Badger Cork took over. I spent the next 30 years working in the cork and manufacturing industry. This experience led me to building my own manufacturing venture in January of 2000 where I opened Ultimate systems. I manufactured and supplied recycled rubber in both sheets and rolls, used for playgrounds, athletic flooring and running tracks. In 2014, Ultimate Systems was sold and I was able to begin another venture when Carrie and I purchased what we now call Spire Technology Solutions.
