Motor Sports Involvement
Since 1990, Holmatro has been the official rescue tool of premier open wheel racing in the USA. During the years when Indy Car and Champ Car were split, Holmatro was one of the few sponsors to support both series. Despite their different directions, both series traveled with dedicated safety teams who chose Holmatro has their rescue equipment partner. In 2008 the two series unified and Holmatro is proud to continue supporting their safety program. With the innovation and space age construction used in the world of motor sports, itís even more critical for their safety crews to have rescue tools that keep pace with technology. Our affiliation with motor sports helps keep us looking forward, always improving, always developing new products and always bringing new solutions to the world of rescue.
We utilize the most modern CNC machining centers, assembly techniques and quality control equipment. Holmatro products are first proven on our laboratory bench-top, and must meet our strict quality standards, before they are allowed to prove themselves in the field. These rigorous standards include: durability, lateral loading, mechanical deformation, over-pressurization and extreme temperatures.
Striving to set Holmatroís quality apart from all others, Holmatro set the bar by being the first and still the only company to offer UL Listed rescue tools. And we offer the most comprehensive line of NFPA Compliant rescue tools in the world. Still, every tool and power unit is operationally tested before we allow it to leave our factory and make its way into the hands of our customers.
In addition to the manufacturing facilities, our Glen Burnie location features a training center that is equipped to teach service, maintenance, and extrication techniques. Adjacent to the classroom is a hands-on training area that allows us to continue working, even when the weather outside doesn't cooperate. Our administrative offices complete our Glen Burnie facility.
