The Cartek Group is an automotive service equipment manufacturer and reseller made up of 10 international companies owned by a private venture capital group. We utilize our engineering company, Kodiak Engineering, to design cutting edge automotive wheel alignment machines using the expertise of renowned Swiss and US engineers. All alignment equipment is made in the USA employing our state of the art HAAS-Precision machining center and production facility in Kalamazoo Michigan. All materials machined for our alignment equipment are sourced in the USA through exclusive partnerships with major aluminum extruders and steel distributors.
The Cartek Group as it is known today has a rock solid foundation built upon the legacy of the Bear Wheel Alignment Company. We acquired the rights and assets of Bear in 1999 and have continued to make advancements in wheel alignment technology ever since. In 2009 we outgrew the Bear name and began developing and selling equipment under the brand name Cartek.
