Tony founded Traplet Publications as a family business in 1980 with the launch of our first magazine title, Radio Race Car International. During his time with the company, Tony has overseen the launch of another dozen magazine titles, a specialised plans and parts service for RC models, books and DVDs. He has also overseen the expansion of the Traplet Media Group with offices opening in the United States, South Africa and Australia. Tony enjoys interacting with our readers and customers as he often can be found at hobby related events around the world, including the popular Florida Jets.
Tom has worked with Traplet Publications since 2002 following his motorcycle ride from Tokyo to London prior to joining the family business. He has worked his way through the company, initially being involved within the Despatch and Accounts departments. For two years he was involved within the Video Production department, editing and filming Traplet DVDs. He has been Operations Director for Traplet since 2006 and now deals with most areas of the business, including Sales and Marketing issues. Tom’s involvement within the company will ensure the continuity that many of our customers have enjoyed over the years.
