Exciting Growth Plans for Trolex


ABMEC member, Trolex of Stockport is gearing up for its next phase of expansion.

As a market -leading manufacturer of gas detectors, sensors, environmental and condition monitoring systems, Trolex has served the world’s mining industry for over 50 years.

Significant recent investment in New Product Development and a push to certify its products in new markets has left Trolex well placed to take advantage of its strong brand reputation over the coming years.

In the middle of 2014, the launch of its Commander III controller will provide the backbone of the re-positioning of Trolex products around a suite of  “Command” based solutions for mining; including systems for ventilation, pump and conveyor monitoring as well as machine and environmental monitoring. With a broadened gas detection offering based on its “Sentro” flagship range and new power supplies and a portable gas detector, Trolex is excited by the opportunities it sees ahead.

To support the growth opportunities, Trolex has re-organised it sales function to represent its three Strategic Business Segments based around customers in the Mining, Industrial and Rail industries.

Taking up the position of Business Manager, Mining is Tim Allard who is excited by the prospects ahead, who says: “the past year has generally been a difficult one for the mining industry but Trolex has not wavered from its ambitious strategic plan and has continued to invest heavily in R&D and new market development. I am delighted to be heading up this important business unit and I am excited by the prospect of building a strong team around me. We will be looking to bring on board two new International Sales Managers in 2014, one focusing predominantly on the Asia Pacific region and the other looking to build our business in Africa and the Americas, where we see significant growth potential for our products and services.”
