Trolex 60th Anniversary

By Trolex News on Jul 16, 2019 9:30:06 AM

2019 is a very special year for Trolex, as we celebrate our 60th year in business

Trolex was founded in 1959, in the basement of a large house in Woods Moor -Stockport, working initially as a sales agent. Trolex quickly moved in to the manufacturing of gas and temperature sensors for the mining industry. After ten years, they soon outgrew the basement and made the move to the present building on Newby Road Industrial Estate, Hazel Grove, Stockport.

As we celebrate our sixtieth year, we continue to expand our product range to achieve our mission of Leading Safety Technology. May we take this opportunity, to thank all of our customers. If it wasn’t for your custom and loyalty, Trolex wouldn’t be here today.

May we also thank all of our valued employees. Thanks for all the amazing work you do for Trolex. Your effort and enthusiasm are much needed, and very much appreciated.

On behalf of Trolex, thank you and here's to the next sixty years

The stats on deaths from occupational lung disease alone show that 12,000 lung disease deaths each year are estimated to be linked to past exposure at work, with 20% of those thought to be linked to exposure to asbestos.

Why this is not higher on the business and political agenda is a question which needs to be raised with new cases of work-related ill health costing the UK £9.7 billion in 2016/17 according to a new report published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Health and safety in hazardous environments doesn't just have implications for the wellbeing of operatives, it can also have a serious impact on an operation's finances and viability.
