It all started on the 1st of January in 1972 when Axel Maarschalk and Hurst Performance* agreed to a partnership introducing the hydraulic rescue tool concept into the market. Under the name of Zumro, Axel takes the lead in all markets except North America. This partnership led to several innovations, such as the introduction of the spreader, the dedicated cutter and the ram. All of these changing the way you perform your rescue operation today.
In 1990 Hurst Performance* and Zumro decided to dissolve their partnership. From then onwards Zumro changed its strategy to become the most innovative solution provider it has become today; RESQTEC. In 2005 Jan-Pieter Maarschalk enters the family business and is appointed to CEO in 2011. With the focus on continuing to develop innovative solutions, to educate but more importantly to learn from the users, we continue to be a leading manufacturer for the rescue and recovery industry .
