History


In 1962, TROX Brothers Limited was formed as a private company to service the UK, marketing the Gebrüder TROX GmbH manufactured air distribution products from an office in Bethnal Green, London.  This sales office continued until 1965 when a 16,000 sq ft factory at Enfield, Middlesex was leased and the first UK production of air distribution grilles commenced.

From 1966 to 1971, demand for TROX products grew, and the manufacturing facilities at Enfield increased to 26,000 sq ft.

The scope of manufacture expanded to include axial-flow fans, filtration equipment, high pressure equipment, tunnel ventilation dampers, multi-leaf damper units and fire dampers, requiring even more production space.

With the purchase of a freehold site in 1971, TROX moved into a new custom built factory in Thetford providing 50,000 sq ft of manufacturing and 16,000 sq ft of office space, but as demand continued to grow, even this proved not to be enough. From 1976 to 1983 factory extensions further increased the production facilities to 90,000 sq ft with 22,000 sq ft of office space.

In 1987 TROX Brothers Limited celebrated 25 years of service to the Heating and Ventilating industry, that year also saw the completion of a 2,500 sq ft test laboratory at Thetford.

As the company grew, manufacturing space was at a premium. Being unable to expand any further on the Thetford site, a 5 acre greenfield site at Great Yarmouth was selected and another factory built and officially opened in 1990. This factory added a further 30,000 sq ft of manufacturing.

In 1990 TROX Brothers Limited received BS 5750 Part 2 1987 accreditation. TROX also implemented a Quality Management System to BS EN ISO 9001 : 2000.

On 1st January 1996 the company name was changed to TROX (UK) Ltd, and the Board Members also introduced the new MRPII (Manufacturing Resource Planning) culture into the company along with a new BaaN computer software system.  Later that year, an office was opened in Dubai to support the Company's fast growing Middle East export market.

By 1997, to complement its extensive product range, TROX UK added manufacturing of Chilled Ceilings, Chilled Beams and Fan Coil Units.

Four years later in 2001 Michael Brunson OBE opened purpose built Training Facilities at the Thetford site.

2002 saw TROX UK achieve Investor in People status, presented to the company by John Healey, M.P. Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Adult Skills.

In 2005, a further three test rooms were completed to cope with the demand for product development and project testing.

To further support its customers in the UK, TROX UK opened a new sales office in London in 2009.

TROX continues to invest in its manufacturing facilities at Thetford and development of its staff across the UK.
