This month marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of Trolex Engineering. We have grown to become a leading company in our industry with over 30 employees, supplying to 49 countries worldwide.
40 years is a great achievement. It provides the opportunity to look back and reflect, but to also look forward to the future. A key element of our success, and one that we pride ourselves on, is our relationships with all stakeholders, appreciating the impact they have on our business. Our company started as an independent British manufacturer and maintains that today. This milestone proves the reliability of our products, even when operating in some of the most extreme environments around the World.
To celebrate this achievement, we want to share our history, our present-day and our future with you. This will be done in a series of short stories over the next 12 months on our website.
Without our customers none of these stories would have been possible, so thank you for your support and we look forward to another 40 years!
Trolex Engineering have successfully passed their LRQA ISO9001:2008 Certificate Renewal which took place in December 2014, validating our system for a further 3 years!
ISO9001 (published by ISO – International Organisation for Standardisation) is a global quality management system designed to help organisations ensure that they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders whilst meeting statutory and regulatory requirements. It covers all areas of the business including:
Following a 2-day audit of our quality systems, the LRQA Auditor had some great things to say about our company, such as:
“No non-conformances or problems with any of the system – could easily work towards the updated standards which are released later this year as we already do many of the things that contribute to the new standards.”
“Great company to audit – I wish all were like this”
“Quality records are readily available and production systems were reviewed as impressive.”
Trolex Engineering has held ISO9001 status since 1 March 1991 and remains committed to the ongoing optimization of our systems and processes in support of business objectives. The recognition of our efforts to be a high-quality company is great to see from external auditors.

Following an audit on 8th January 2015 from an Auditor at our notified body, SGS Baseefa Ltd, Trolex Engineering have achieved an ‘A’ rating for our QA system, which has been considered suitable for the purpose of maintaining our ATEX QA Notification.
This notification is a mandatory requirement for companies who design and manufacture explosion-protected equipment, providing confidence that the products supplied comply with their certified design.
The SGS Baseefa Auditor commended our system with the following comment:
“I wish all audits were as straightforward as this. You have a really good none-complicated quality system and you really demonstrate how committed you are to Ex products. You are a very rare company who obviously cares that they manufacture Ex products and this really is something to be proud of.”
