About Us

Established in 2011 Truckminder has grown to develop and engineer an award winning anti-fuel theft device, TM3. Originally the business developed a leading Catalytic Converter / DPF protection system, TM1. This progressed into devices which protected the ECU and Battery from theft. The secret of what makes the Truckminder the leading anti-theft system provider, lies within its unique technology.

The Truckminder team has invested heavily in Research and Development leading to the identification of specific attacks on fuel tanks and catalytic converters. This has been accompanied by working closely with leading organisations within the haulage industry, ranging from telematics providers to services depots and distributors, with whom we look to and continue to build partnerships with.
