Five minutes with Geoff McBride, Sales Manager, Troax UK Ltd

Can you please share a little about yourself with our visitors?

Troax is a global company, founded in Sweden over sixty years ago, now operating in more than 30 countries with first class local customer focus. Troax has become the leading manufacturers of mesh panel systems, for many applications including; machine guarding, storage and security cages, warehouse and industrial partitioning. Protecting; people, property and processes.
Machinery safety is a serious matter and all of our machine guarding products provide innovative safety solutions, and of course are fully compliant with the Machinery Directive and the standards contained therein. The expertise and experience of our UK field team is available to discuss all your needs and is fully supported by equally skilled internal design and technical teams, to complement our fully managed installation service.

Where solutions are required quickly, Troax can deliver from the extensive stock of standard modular products held in our Swindon logistics hub.

Can you please tell us why you chose to exhibit at Robotics and Automation 2017?

Robotics and automation is a very progressive business sector and this show offers us yet another platform, on which to convey to the industry, the many benefits of consulting with Troax and of using our products and services.

What will you be sharing with visitors to the exhibition?

We will show the full extent of our standard modular guarding products,  as well as  considering the options to customise, or even  design completely bespoke components/ solutions.  Machine manufacturers, integrators, distributors and end users can all benefit hugely from fully compliant guarding being designed and supplied by Troax, a technically competent and customer focused company.
We will be demonstrating our wide range of machine guarding  systems, which includes; Rapid-Fix, Smart-Fix , together with our Safe Lock range of PLd and PLe  interlocks.

What do you feel are the biggest challenges facing the industry at the moment?

I believe that the greatest challenge to the industry is in keeping pace with the expectation of ever increasing throughput and fulfilment.

Our greatest challenge is ensuring a complete understanding of our customers’ challenges and delivering the support they require.

Troax is extremely good at that….
