Hamaton Inc. expanding into US TPMS market
Following the successful launch of Hamaton Limited in Europe, the TPMS and valve manufacturer has announced the opening of its new North American headquarters. Hamaton Incorporated will be located in Wixom, Michigan – not far from Detroit, and will open in November 2016.
With the launch of Hamaton Inc., the North American headquarters of Hamaton Automotive Technology Co. Ltd, Hamaton is taking the next step towards fulfilling the increasing demand for TPMS products in the US.
Hamaton Inc.’s role will be to further develop the strong customer portfolio that the business has developed since its establishment in 1993. Just like Hamaton Limited based in Europe, Hamaton Inc. will be the North American TPMS technical center, as well as a sales and distribution platform for the comprehensive range of Hamaton manufactured products.
By opening a new base in Michigan, the company see this bringing a number of benefits to its customers. The new central location in the US with its own warehouse and logistics will ensure that lead times are much shorter for customers. Vehicle testing and evaluation will also be carried out on the premises, helping in the development of products adhering to US requirements and guaranteeing practical, up-to-date knowledge at all times. In addition to this Hamaton Inc. will be able to offer field support and provide comprehensive practical and classroom training. The company believes that having a North American headquarters will lend them not only better local market understanding, but also greater insight into customer needs and the ability to meet their requirements on a more specialised, personal level.
Ian Smith, CEO of Hamaton Limited and now Hamaton Inc., explained: “Our primary goal is to offer our customers, both current and new, exceptional quality products with the best possible service. Opening a headquarters in America is the next step in our journey, and plans to expand further in future are already in the works.”
