Trakker is was established as being one of the leading suppliers of quality carp equipment but going way back to the early 1980’s the company was originally called Rainbow Angling Supplies and carp angling was almost unheard of….
The founder of Trakker Products is called Carl Drabble and at the start of the early 80’s found himself, like many others, a victim of the closure in Sheffield of many steel and cutlery firms. Always a keen match angler Carl had always dreamt of turning his hobby into a business and now that redundancy had meant he was out of work he decided to give it a go. From the outset the company’s principles lay in producing high quality, innovative products although initially these were for other famous brands of the time such as Shakespeare, Shimano and Browning amongst many others and were all manufactured in Sheffield to order.
During the 90’s however more change arrived in the form of cheap imports from China, in a very short period of time most of our existing customers had re-sourced from China and a change of direction was required in order for the company to survive, this change of direction involved the emerging carp market and with it the start of a new era – Trakker Products.
From supplying other brands with bespoke product we were now dealing directly with the retailer with our own range of products which were designed and manufactured in the UK. Initially these were luggage items for which we had many years of experience in manufacturing.
The big breakthrough came with the now legendary Armo Bivvy. For some time we had had a link with a small company in Cheshire called Aqua Products who produced a small range of equipment and sold directly to the angler via mail order. The quality was the best in Europe but on a small scale due to the limited distribution channels. It then made sense for Trakker to manufacture the Armo Bivvy under license and sell to the retailer while Aqua continued to trade directly to the end user. The demand for the Armo was unheralded and very quickly the workforce was doubled in size to cope with the amount of orders it was inundated with. Within a couple of years another classic bivvy design was introduced in the form of the Pioneer and its lightweight brother, the Ultralight, again the demand was incredible and Trakker was well and truly established as one of the UK’s leading supplier of carp equipment. The Armo Bivvy has now evolved to be still the leading ‘pram-hood’ shelter and the Pioneer has evolved to what we know today as the superb Tempest Bivvy.
