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
At Trolex, a huge part of our culture is that we want to be a source for good in the world. To do this, we've identified local charities that reflect this mission and with the kind support of our colleagues, we are able to donate our time to assist with these incredible causes.
That's why Trolex are actively supporting the local charity Transport For Sick Children.
While mining safety has improved considerably over the last two decades, mining is still one of the most dangerous occupations in the world.
On a routine basis, miners are exposed to a number of serious hazards: cave-ins, floods, gas explosions, wet surfaces, chemical exposure, dust, fumes, moving and falling machinery, and others.
In many instances, individual solutions are in place to mitigate these problems; but as new tools and techniques are utilised in mines, a more holistic and real-time approach to mine safety must be considered.
Trolex are pleased to announce the launch of their Technical Services department. Our service engineers have moved in to the brand new modern Vernon building, which is a fully equipped technical engineering workshop, to meet the growing demand of our customers.
At Trolex, our technical support team are highly qualified service engineers with an average of 20 years’ experience in the field. We only use skilled engineers, to provide you with a managed service that gives peace-of-mind in knowing that your systems are always operating to the highest international standards. Discover our technical engineering service options HERE.
Juxta, a suite of innovative on-board digital technology solutions for transportation companies, has moved to a new Denmark office after separating from the Trolex group.
The on-board digital suite, which helps companies transform passenger experiences, generate new revenue and reduce data costs, will continue to operate under the Trolex|Aporta name, but is no longer associated with the Stockport based Trolex group.
We wish to share our achievement of being one of the Innovation Finalists at Contamination UK 2018, with our AIR XD Particulate Monitor. The feedback from the judges was very impressive. Contamination UK contacted us to say "The analysis from our judges regarding your product was excellent and I believe the final results were very close!"
Well done to all of the winners from each category
It is becoming cliché to say that technology is changing the face of business sectors all over the world, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t happening and the mining and manufacturing sectors are no different.
While traditionally labour-intensive and reliant on heavy, static equipment, smart and connected technology is now showing potential to completely change how mining and manufacturing businesses operate.
From remote and mobile environment and equipment monitoring, to real-time data and analytics to machine learning and automation, there is seemingly no end to the benefits new mining and manufacturing technology is bringing to historically industrial sectors.
Despite technology making hazardous environments much safer than they have historically been, there remains a serious risk of danger in some mining and industrial environments.
Large and cumbersome equipment, which needs to be operative and monitored 24/7, not to mention operatives working in confined spaces, possibly being exposed to hazardous chemicals or fumes, means management of these environments remains as challenging as ever.
On the other hand, more mobile equipment which can be easily moved around an environment, or even worn by operatives, is helping make headway in the battle for a safer work environment, but these bring entirely new challenges, with much of the equipment requiring constant wireless connections to work properly, plus needing to operate in some of the harshest environments around.
Trolex will be attending the Contamination Expo on 12th & 13th September at the NEC in Birmingham. We will be showcasing the AIR X Particulate monitor and will even be carrying out LIVE demonstrations. Visit us on stand 5P63.
This is Europe’s leading event for environmental professionals, showcasing the latest in modern strategies, techniques and technologies currently used across the industry.
