Established in 1962, ventilation manufacturer TROX is celebrating 60 years in the UK Market with a summer celebration event for all UK employees.
Part of the TROX Group, TROX UK established its presence in the UK with a manufacturing facility in Thetford established in 1971 - developing into a centre of excellence for manufacturing chilled beams, fan coils, grilles and diffusers, and air handling units for the group.
“Our 60th Anniversary is a fantastic achievement for everyone involved in TROX’s history,” said Neil Addison, managing director (Sales & Operations) TROX UK. “It is a time to remember with pride everything the company has achieved, and it is an opportunity to look to the future.”
The commitment by the TROX group to the UK operations has recently been reaffirmed with a £1.5 million investment to establish a centre of excellence for the manufacture of the X-Cube air handling unit. Capital investment facilitated the installation of new production technology, including an automated bending machine, a new brake press tool and tool storage, a glue mixing and dispensing machine for the panels, a seal-making machine, and three new panel presses.
TROX UK now employs a team of 145. Many of the company’s staff have devoted their entire careers to working for TROX. The average service across the workforce is 11 years, and two current employees have worked for TROX for more than 42 years each.

Suzanne Archer, managing director (Finance & HR) TROX UK, commented: “We are extremely proud to have employees of such long-standing as part of our team at Thetford, and it has given us great pleasure to welcome new additions in recent years. Our apprenticeship programme continues to provide the springboard for careers with TROX, and we are also adding to our production team this year. Continuity and longevity are important for everyone at TROX UK, as well as for our customers and suppliers.”
