According to Fioravanti, "Mile Marker has an outstanding tradition for quality off road winches, hubs, and recovery gear, is ISO Certified, and is a member of SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Manufacturing Association. I am proud to work closely with the incredible team here at MMI to spearhead growth, drive profitability and increase operational excellence.

We plan to expand our presence in the public sector marketplace with offerings for public works, public safety, environmental maintenance, marine, homeland security, space exploration, and beyond. In consumer end-user markets we plan to provide solutions that add value to passenger cars and enhance the capability of the vehicle and the operator.

According to Speir, "Mile Marker is deep-rooted in innovation and was ahead of its time when the company started nearly 40-years ago with drivetrain conversion kits to increase a vehicle's fuel economy. Utilizing the hydraulic system of an automobile to power a recovery system was another innovative idea leading to an ongoing relationship with the United States Military and earning the trust of thousands of service people. I am excited to work with the MMI team to continue leveraging technologies, developing innovative solutions, and producing dependable products that enrich people's lives in their professional and recreational activities."
