TriMark Announces New Sales Representative for Mexico and Central America

January 2012 - Keith Dolbear, Managing Director of TriMark Europe Ltd, welcomed Paul Burstow MP for Sutton and Cheam, Minister of State for Care Services, for a return visit to the facility at Sutton on 20th January 2012. Paul was accompanied by Michael Cumper and Maurice O'Connell from Kimpton Industrial Park Proprietors Association (KIPPA).

Keith took the opportunity to show Paul the various improvements on the site, since his last visit about 3 years ago. Mr Burstow was keen to learn more about the growth opportunities for TriMark.

As the USA parent Company, TriMark Corporation is a successful employee owned Company, there was a discussion on how this model could be encouraged in the UK. Mr Burstow commented "I was interested in how TriMark's parent company is employee owned. I explained how the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, is keen to see more companies following the John Lewis Partnership model."

As well as running TriMark in Europe, Keith is also on the Management Council of the Construction Equipment Association (CEA) which is the UK trade association in this sector "We at the CEA are working hard to increase the awareness of politicians in the UK about the importance to the economy of construction equipment". The industry is worth more than GBP8.5B per annum, employs in excess of 50,000 people and over 75% of equipment is manufactured for export. This led to a detailed debate on what the Government could do to encourage further growth in the industry.

Keith concluded by thanking Paul for his interest in both TriMark and the rest of the construction equipment industry and looked forward to working together with him to promote this sector.

Paul added "It was good to catch up with Keith and his team at TriMark. Construction has a critical part to play in sustaining growth and employment. It's why the Government is investing heavily in infrastructure projects up and down the country".

TriMark Unveils New Products at AUSA Winter Symposium

New Hampton, IA. – February 2009 – TriMark Manufacturing based in New Hampton, IA introduced several new products at the Association of the United States Army's 2009 Winter Symposium and Exposition February 25 – 27, 2009 in Ft Lauderdale FL.

While TriMark has attended this event in the past and has participated in various Symposium sponsored activities, this is the first year for creating an actual display for the Exposition itself. TriMark's Kevin Roths states, "Our involvement in the armored vehicle industry has really expanded just in the past year. We have new systems and products that have been developed specifically for this market and the only way to really show them off is in an exhibit format."

TriMark is taking this opportunity to introduce its COMMANDoor concept which will be featured in a complete and functioning door display. The door fully integrates mechanical blast locks and a primary FMVSS latch with a power-assist actuation and control system to open and close the door for those vehicles with very heavy doors. The inside control handle's unique 2-axis electromechanical design allows for simple and intuitive hand motions by the soldier to activate the open and close action of the door. Additionally, the door's power-assist components are modularized to fit in a compact space below the inside door cover.

One of the programs offered by TriMark that has gained a quick and appreciative acceptance in this industry is the availability of "kitted" door systems. These systems allow a purchaser to utilize a single product number to purchase everything that will be required in terms of access systems for that door.

TriMark will début a new product platform for the armored vehicle market consisting of new exterior door handles and a new internal linkage module, as well as announcing that they have the capability to design and manufacture door support hinges in various duty ratings.

The new HD Rotational L Handle expands the current TriGuard product offering of exterior and interior door handles. This robust L Handle features modular construction that allows for customization, including the use of light weight materials, without sacrificing strength. The handle also allows for the use of a padlock for security.
