Meet Our Team
We love what we do and we do it with passion.
Tom started working at Trax in September 2004 as a sales assistant/engineer and is now the company director. He really enjoys working at Trax, meeting new and regular customers often by welcoming them with either tea or coffee and discussing the issues of the day.
He also enjoys the variety of challenges that he faces and coming up with the solutions to overcome them using the skills he has acquired through his apprenticeship training, work based training and previous employment in various industries including car manufacturing, commercial vehicle engineering, agricultural engineering, hydraulic engineering, welding, fabrication, sales and retail.
Tom was also raised on a local farm where he learnt all aspects of farming and agriculture which give him a greater insight to what some of his agricultural customers require from a supplier. His parents also had their own business so he learnt to understand the importance of a quality, reliable, friendly and cost effective supply and repair service. He has always pushed this ethos within Trax as it is very important to him.
