Martins Gets Tough About Safety with Checkpoint

Tire and wheel equipment manufacturer Martins has recently acquired the UK-based Checkpoint, a leader in wheel safety.

Martins, a household name in the North American tire equipment industry, recently acquired the UK-based Checkpoint, a global leader in wheel safety. With Checkpoint, Martins adds to its extensive line of products a host of wheel safety solutions, namely a variety of visual indicators of nut movement. Checkpoint also comes with 30 years of expertise that started with its founder, CEO and inventor, Mike Marczynski.

According to a Martins press release, the renowned expertise and superior quality of Checkpoint is what motivated the acquisition. They said it will undoubtedly prove to be a valuable addition to the Martins brand and will enable them to offer even more quality products to their customers.

“We’re proud to now count in our ranks the extensive know-how and knowledge of the Checkpoint team, as well as the reputation for quality the brand has justly acquired over the years,” said Martin Dépelteau, CEO of Martins.

The plan moving forward is to integrate Checkpoint within the Martins world in the most seamless way possible, and without changing anything that makes the wheel safety brand great. For any Checkpoint team member, partner or client, this means it’s business as usual in terms of operations, distribution, quality and personality.

The press release said Martins wants to continue to fully support B2B distribution for Checkpoint and the excellent work the team is doing and believes adding this dynamic to their existing lines of products reinforces their presence in the market in every aspect. This will certainly lead to plenty of opportunities to grow down the road.
