Checkers Industrial Products, LLC and AlturnaMATS, Inc. merged in late March to expand their industrial safety product offerings to more markets.

According to Jack Roser, president and owner of AlturnaMATS, “the partnership with Checkers only spells a good future for AlturnaMATs. It brings together two companies with the same goals in mind, safety and asset protection, and will help grow both brands. In addition, it provides AlturnaMATS with additional resources to help accelerate our growth.”

The combined Checkers product offering now includes Matting, Cribbing, ClearMATS, AlturnaMATS, VersaMATS, and Safety Tech Outrigger Pads, all falling under Checkers’ ground protection product category.

“AlturnaMATS is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of ground protection mats and is viewed as an industry leader. This investment allows us to enter the ground protection industry with a recognized market leader, something we have wanted to do for some time, and gives us the opportunity to exponentially grow our ground protection division,” said Checkers’ President Ray Torres.

Checkers Industrial manufactures and distributes a variety of other branded safety products including cable management systems, wheel chocks, safety lights, ground protection, and warning whips for the industrial, mining, oil and gas, military, entertainment, construction, and aviation markets.
