About the employer

Metrax Engineering Ltd was formed in 2010 by its director Daniel Ward. With nearly 20 years experience in the production of vehicle equipment Daniel saw a gap in the market for an off the shelf high quality, affordable range of in-vehicle storage equipment. Initially with a retail only customer base the business soon picked up on the small to medium size fleet installation market and sales expanded to trade customers. Increased staff numbers and machinery capacity led to increased output and productivity. So coupled with an in house design team we now have the ability and flexibility to produce large numbers of standard and bespoke products in a very short lead time.
