Treotham Automation is celebrating its 25th year. Founded by Mikael Paltoft in 1992, Treotham began as a very small business selling just chains and accessories out of Mikael's home garage.
The company gradually started to expand as Mikael visited companies throughout Australia to promote his product range to the marketplace. At the time he didn't have a computer and was using a manual card system and pager. In 1995 he employed his first staff member and opened a warehouse in Perth, an ideal location for the then booming mining sector, and after winning some big projects, he was able to move to a bigger premises in Brookvale.
Twenty-five years later, Treotham is now a supplier of components and products to industrial markets throughout Australia and New Zealand. Treotham currently employs 25 full-time staff and stocks more than 1000 automation products throughout its warehouses in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Auckland.
Treotham’s product range includes flexible cables, energy chains, flexible conduits, cable accessories, safety products, sensors, position controls, bearings, gearboxes and linear units, form companies such as igus, Wenglor. Wieland, Chainflex and Reer.
"We supply a diverse range of products and components to a variety of industry sectors, everything from robotics to railways and food processing," said Paltoft.
As the world is becoming more automated, innovation is important. "It is no longer sufficient to just sell products, you have to sell a total solution," he said. "We assist our clients to find the ideal solution to meet their requirements."
