Spring has sprung at Martel!


Where does the time go? We returned to work in January, and our 1st quarter was so extremely busy, that before we knew it, it’s the end of April, and Summer is fast approaching! At this time of year, our thoughts turn to which exhibitions to attend, visiting our distributors, and (last but certainly by no means least), our holidays!

Matthew and Keith have just returned from visiting our Swiss distributor, Optologic. We have been extremely lucky to have Optologic as a partner for over 15 years now, and enjoy working with them. They offer our full printer range, and customization also, so if you are located in Switzerland, then give them a call, they’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Supplying high quality printers globally is what we do best, and here is our map & stats for everywhere we dispatched too in March. We shipped to some new locations, and as you can see from the stats, our products travelled a good percentage of the globe.

We are sure you may have already seen on our social media accounts that we are exhibiting at HIMSS17 in Orlando, Florida in February 2017! This is our first time exhibiting at HIMSS, and we have wanted to do so for a while. Stay tuned to our website, for updates as we prepare for this amazing show!

Martel are also looking at other exhibitions that may be appropriate for us to exhibit or attend, especially in 2017 when we will be launching some very exciting products. Initial launch will take place in Q3/Q4 2016, and we’d love to hear any exhibition recommendations you may have for us.

That’s all for this month, but why not sign up to our e-bulletin here and be the first to hear about our new product launches and other news.

Best wishes!

Everyone at Martel.

New Year, New Products!


Happy New Year, to everyone and we hope you enjoyed the festive season, as much as we did!

It doesn’t feel like a year ago, since we were writing our new year’s blog for 2015, and here we are doing it all over again. As always, we’d like to thank our customers and business partners who made it possible for us to have a very successful 2015.

We are starting off 2016 with a bang …. Or more of a DIN, with the launch of our DIN5800 thermal printer.

DIN Rail Printer Side2 (002)

Our DIN RAIL mount printer is compatible with DIN RAIL TOP HAT 35mm and TS35 and can be supplied as a 5V or 10-35V to suit all applications.

For more information on our DIN5800, to download a data sheet or to arrange a demo click here.

As always, our sales team will be out and about visiting various customers, distributors and exhibitions throughout 2016, and we will hopefully see some of you along the way.

Our first exhibition visit of 2016, will be to LAMMA16 in Peterborough on the 21st of January. LAMMA is a farming machinery, equipment and services show. For more information you can visit here.

Springing forward with new products


Spring has arrived at Martel HQ, the longer days, warmer (we hope) weather and the fact that each of the commercial team have a nice vacation to look forward to is definitely putting the spring in everyone’s step. Matt is visiting the US, and going to Glastonbury, Sharon is holidaying in Florida and Joanne has opted for a relaxing break in a cabin buried deep in the forest. Where are your 2015 holidays taking you this year? Are you going for adventure or chill out? A stay-cation or somewhere far flung? Where ever you go, we wish you a fantastic time, and hope to hear about it.

Speaking of globe-trotting, once again, in the month of April, Martel have supplied printers the world over. Check out the map below:

Coming very soon, we will have a video which will highlight some new products to enhance our thermal printers. We know the print out from your device is very important, and working in certain environments can be difficult to maintain the quality of that print out, well fear not, we have a solution. Stay tuned, and sign up to our e-bulletin here and we will reveal all……..

Later this month Matt will be visiting Autopromotec in Italy. This expo is for accessories and products in the automotive industry. We look forward to seeing some of our existing customers there. The automotive industry and the locations of the products for this market can be a very harsh environment (oil, chemicals etc.), you may want to stay tuned for the video, as I guarantee this will be of interest to you.


On that note, it’s back to lights, camera, action and we look forward to sharing our new thermal printer enhancements with you very soon.

Red, Red Martel!


On Friday at Martel we were wearing red all in the aid of BBC’s Red nose day AKA Comic Relief!


Even our printers got involved!


Our sales team who are currently in the middle of our #MadMarch around the United States managed to get into the Red Nose day spirit too! Here is a red nose making an appearance at Pittcon, next to our brand new statistical printer!


We managed to raise a very impressive £66 With all money going to help disadvantaged people across the UK and in Africa.

Pittcon diary day 4!


Today sees our last day at Pittcon 2015. We have loved every minute of it, meeting contacts old and new. We can’t quite believe it has gone over so quickly.

We’d like to share a few panorama photos of our view for the last 4 days!

Again we’d also like to thank our friends at Intelligent weighing who have said we can keep the chick so it will be coming home with us! Hooray!

Just because Pittcon is over does not mean we are leaving the States. We will be continuing our #MadMarch over the next week. Stay tuned to our Twitter page for more updates!

Pittcon diary day 2


It was a busy day at our booth today where we are exhibiting alongside our American partners Current Components.


Big thanks to our neighbors Intelligent Weighing Technology who kindly loaned us their analytical scale, which works amazingly alongside our new statistical printer!


(The chick is also very popular amongst our visitors!)

If you haven’t done so already please feel free to drop by and say hello, we are in booth 2009!

Arab Health Roundup


Hi all,

It’s just under a week since Arab Health 2015 finished. We would like to say thank you to every one of our customers who were in Dubai, and a special mention to all the new contacts we made.

Last week was only the second time Martel has visited Arab Health, and we found it interesting, hectic and enjoyable.

We had two full days at the show, and our research took us straight to Sheikh Rashid Hall, were we spent the vast majority of our time on Tuesday.


On Wednesday we moved over to the Za’abeel Halls and spent some time in the numerous, and vast individual nation pavilions.

The show was a real eye opener into the potential markets outside Martel’s core areas of the EU and USA! We met potential customers from Brazil, China and India. We also took the time to meet some current customers from Italy and the UK.


As always, Martels ability to add further value to a customer’s product offering, was a real conversation starter. We really enjoyed being able to discuss how Martel might be able to work with so many companies from all over the globe.

We would definitely describe our trip to Dubai as a success. By the time we were due to fly back to the UK on Thursday, we were exhausted, but absolutely ready to start the long process of Exhibition follow up.

Thank you to everyone, we hope you had a safe journey home and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Best Wishes

Everyone at Martel Instruments
