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.

The renowned expertise and superior quality of Checkpoint is what motivated the acquisition. 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.

Integrate Checkpoint within 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. 

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.

Martins Industries offers innovation and reliability. They design, manufacture and sell high-quality supplies and equipment for all types of tires and wheels to improve safety and efficiency in the workplace.  With numerous distribution centers, a foothold in North America, Europe, Australia, and other parts of the world, they’re ever ready to drive results. Shops around the world trust Martins to support them on their paths towards efficiency.
