During the busy tyre change-over seasons, it is vital that TPMS sensor replacement is made as quick and easy as possible for servicing technicians – says sensor-maker Hamaton, which adds that its Hamaton’s OE-R sensor is “an economical solution that allows garages to save a substantial amount of time and money when it comes to sensor replacement”.
With the weather getting colder, some motorists are now changing over to Winter tyres, meaning a considerable amount of TPMS sensor valves will require servicing. This creates the opportunity to bring in more business for garages and servicing centres – and as more and more new cars on the road are fitted with TPMS, this number is increasing every year.
TPMS specialist Hamaton Ltd states that since opening last November, its North American headquarters – Hamaton Inc. – has achieved strong first-year growth. This growth, it adds, has accelerated rapidly in recent months following the acquisition of a number of new customers.
An internal promotion sees Rachel Banton become commercial director of Whetstone-based TPMS and tyre valve specialist Hamaton Ltd. In her new role, Banton is expected to assist with the planned expansion of Hamaton’s European operations.
Hamaton Ltd has launched a brand new TPMS sensor for the European aftermarket. The EU-Pro Hybrid is the latest addition to Hamaton’s product range and is the next generation in universal sensor technology, with several new and upgraded features that have been adapted from their successful EU-Pro range.
After the firm’s official opening in the UK in early 2015, specialist TPMS and valve manufacturer Hamaton Ltd reports it is pleased to look back on a year that has seen the business go from strength to strength, with increasing sales and an enhanced reputation developing throughout the global TPMS market. One sign of this is the firm’s decision to move to large UK premises.
Following the establishment of Hamaton Inc. in the US, Hamaton has appointed Enri Osmani, as general manager of the North America business. According to the company, he brings with him “significant depth of experience gained from senior roles which have taken him into both the Automotive aftermarket and OE sectors.”
Based at the new headquarters in Wixom, Michigan, and working closely with the management team of Hamaton Ltd in the UK, he will coordinate the development of Hamaton Inc. which will ensure that Hamaton’s North American customer base will receive valuable field sales, technical, training and product support.
Nearly a year on from the launch of the T-Pro1 Tech TPMS will continue to advance its TPMS programme in the autumn with the addition of Hamaton H36 and H46 diagnostic tools into the programme. The company also launched the Tech OE-R sensor and ATEQ VT36 diagnostic tool at the Reifen exhibition in May.
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.
Hamaton’s H36 and H46 diagnostic tools, produced by Ateq, are now available with a two-year warranty and five years of free updates.
Hamaton Limited, the European sales and distribution centre of its parent company Hamaton Automotive Technology Co. Limited in China, unveiled their first diagnostic tools, produced by Ateq, at the Reifen show earlier this year.
For the first time, Hamaton Limited was present at Essen with a108 square metre booth. Hamaton Limited is the European headquarter of Hamaton Automotive Technology Co. Limited and was only founded in 2015. The company is both a European TPMS technical centre, and a sales and distribution platform for the wide range of Hamaton manufactured products in Europe.
Tyresure and Hamaton have appointed Martin Blakey to the position of managing director. The two sister companies report that they made the appointment in order to “recruit industry expertise” to address the “fast developing European TPMS markets”.
Hamaton has booked a 108 square metre stand for the Essen show, where the TPMS firms plans to exhibit “a complete range” of its sensors and valves including its new OE-R sensors. Hamaton will be in hall 1, at stand 1C15. Reifen 2016 takes place from 24 to 27 May at Messe Essen in Germany.
