JEC Americas 2012 - Nicolas Juillard, president and CEO of JB Martin Limited wishes to announce the sale of Martintek USA.

A well-recognized brand name in the high-performance fabrics market, Martintek USA specializes in hard and soft ballistics material. The company, found in 2009, was a division of JB Martin until its sale which was concluded in August 2012. Based in Leesville, SC, Martintek USA was purchased by a group of industry investors.


For JB Martin Ltd., this sale is a strategic move aimed at continuing to expand its ballistics business in North America and around the world. JB Martin Ltd. will continue to sell and promote protection related fabrics under its own brand name as well as the “Martintek” brand, to which it retains the rights.


According to Mr. Juillard: “The market is currently in a positive growth mode and the sale of Martintek USA will permit our company to concentrate on establishing the well-known JB Martin brand in this market space”.
