Treotham achieves 25-year milestone

From its modest beginnings in founder Mikael Paltoft’s garage in 1992,
Treotham has indeed come a long way, becoming a leading supplier of high
quality components and products to industrial markets throughout Australia and
New Zealand.

The small business, which sold just chains and accessories, gradually
grew and expanded as Mikael visited companies throughout Australia to promote
his unique product range to the marketplace. The year 1995 saw him hire his first
staff member and open a warehouse in Perth, an ideal location for the then
booming mining sector. He subsequently moved to bigger premises in Brookvale
after fulfilling major projects.

Today, Treotham is a market leader in the supply of high quality
components from world-leading brands to the industrial sector, currently
employs 25 full-time staff, and stocks more than 1000 high quality products
throughout its multiple warehouses in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and

The extensive product portfolio includes flexible cables, chainflex
cables, energy chains, flexible conduits, cable accessories, safety products,
sensors, position controls, bearings, gearboxes and linear units. Mikael observes
that the company is recession-proof as it doesn’t rely on just one sector; Treotham
caters to the demands of diverse industry sectors, from robotics to railways
and food processing.

Treotham represents many of the best names in the industry including
igus, PMA, Lapp Group, Wenglor, Wieland, Euchner, Kabeltec, Wittenstein, Hummel,
Eupen, Chainflex and Reer. Mikael maintains a close relationship with all of
his suppliers, and was recently appointed by Lapp Group for their cable and
connection technology.

Treotham has supplied their products to major projects in Australia
including igus energy chains for Woodside Energy; e-spools for the Opera House
refurbishment for stage lighting equipment; chains and high flexible cables for
BHP ship loaders; PMA conduits to all major railway car manufacturers including
Bombardier, Alstom, Downer EDI and UGL; halogen free cables for baggage systems
in all major airports in Australia; and cables for TNT and Toll Ipec depots and
cargo conveyors.

Innovation is an important driver for business as the world embraces
automation. Treotham strives to embrace new technologies and push the
boundaries of industry best practice. As Mikael says, “It’s no longer
sufficient to just sell products; you have to sell a total solution.”
