Transmon Engineering Ltd- Meet The Team!
Transmon Engineering has gone from strength to strength in recent years. See below a little about each member of our team!
Steve Coley – Owner / Managing Director
Our Managing Director, Steve Coley, was already a time-served and experienced engineer when he came up with the original idea for what was later to become the first generation 'Gear Savure'.
While working on an entirely different problem for a customer, he discovered that they were also having regular issues with operators 'hot-shifting' and causing damage to the transmissions on their forklift fleet. The repairs were expensive, but the lost productivity was even more so. Through his own research and electronics knowledge, Steve decided on the best solution, obtained work as a forklift engineer in order to test his theory, and soon came up with a prototype controller. The unit was fitted, and after extensive testing, the project was a success. As a result of this Transmon Engineering Limited was born in 1994 and has been a success ever since.
Lauralee Farrant – Office Manager
Lauralee joined Transmon in October 2016 and comes from an exceptionally strong background of over 30 years small business management and public accounting. Her primary focus within Transmon is an intricate role of managing the office, keeping on top of our orders and accounts whilst providing support to our engineers on a day to day basis. Since the appointment of Lauralee the business has seen a progressive upward trend and as a result of this has seen the appointment of 2 further heads at Transmon.
