Spartan Metallurgical Company (SMC) was founded at San Jose State University in 1984 by Alexander Kanellakos, a fellow student and a professor from the Material Science and Engineering Department. The company focused on developing commercial, industrial, and government aerospace related custom and ultra high-purity alloys and semiconductor grade metals and semiconductors. Because SMC uses raw materials and precious metals in many applications, we also work and invest in the commodities metals and bullion distributors to maintain price control and hedge investments when appropriate. Past proprietary products developed for customers include peritectic ternary alloys, sputtering bimetallic targets for semiconductor processing, amorphous silicon solar cells, non-stick tetra-titanium oxide cooking surfaces, aerospace, habitat self regulating heat pipe and cooling hardware, thick film

Minerals and Resources • Performance and Government Bonds • International Trade and Worldwide Finance • Other Government and Commercial Services • Precious Metals Investing Advice and Research • Emerging Materials and Processes Development We hope to share more information as we pivot to new emerging technologies.
