FIA appoints Holmatro as Official Supplier of rescue equipment

2 May 2019

As officially announced at the FIA Conference 2019 in South Africa on 1st May, Dutch company Holmatro has become a FIA Official Supplier and will provide its latest hydraulic cutting and spreading equipment to FIA sanctioned circuits worldwide.

As part of the new agreement Holmatro will work with the FIA Safety and Medical departments to provide equipment along with training to support local crews and ensure the highest standards. In addition, FIA National Sporting Authorities will have direct access to FIA approved and standardised Holmatro rescue equipment for its racing series.

“We are delighted to be able to provide Holmatro’s state-of-the-art equipment to our circuits worldwide,” said Adam Baker, FIA Safety Director. “It is crucial that rescue teams have access to the latest rescue tools which meet the rigorous standards we set and to training programs that further enhance safety.”

Having supplied tools for the IndyCar safety team since 1991, Holmatro has become a leader in manufacturing rescue equipment to assist in the quick and safe extrication of race drivers following incidents on track. Its cordless and powerful tools are ideal for the motorsport environment, where drivers need to be extricated from carbon fibre monocoques and high-strength roll-cage structures. Over the years it has been Holmatro’s goal to translate its learnings in racing into innovative rescue tools that raise the level of global post-crash response.

“Holmatro is proud to be chosen as an official supplier to the FIA and bring our rescue equipment to circuits worldwide,” said Harm Hermans, Holmatro CEO. “We believe in constant improvement and innovation when it comes to safety, and this is a further demonstration of the quality of our world-class tools and extrication training and consultancy.”
