Thomas Group was originally formed in 1977 in a Kent farmyard as J.A.Thomas Fuel Injection Engineers. Later the company became Thomas Auto Injection Centre Ltd known worldwide for its technical expertise and parts sales.
The company is now located in Ashford, Kent with good links to both the UK and the Continent.
Since beginning as a purely diesel orientated workshop auto electrics, petrol injection, air conditioning and electronic tuning have been added to our range of services.
After many years in the fuel injection business we are finding the new technologies both challenging and exciting.
We will continue to invest believing that all repair work should be done ‘in-house’.
Our parts sales business – Thomas Distribution – has been a natural progression and utilises our technical expertise. New manufacturers added to our range include Mr Funnel and Racor.
Over the past decade Thomas Auto ’s customer base has grown from local businesses to companies worldwide.
In 1995 we became Stanadyne Central Distributors for the UK. Since then we have become responsible for the Republic of Ireland and Kenya.
At the beginning of 2004 a new and exciting challenge began with a change of ownership. Three employees who intend to give the company the energy and enthusiasm required to move forwards have purchased the company.
In more recent years a new large parts stores has been built to handle the increased bulk filter and fuel additive requirements. A new top of the range Bosch test bench has been installed, Yanmar has officially instated us as the only Yanmar fuel injection pump workshop in the UK and an MOT bay has been added. The work force continues to grow.
As the business has continued to grow with the services we offer and our increasing parts stores, in 2018 it was decided to rebrand the business. This gave each of the different elements of the business their own identify and recognition. Therefore Thomas Auto Injection Centre Ltd has been rebranded to Thomas Group Ltd.
Thomas Group Ltd consists of the following brands – Thomas Injection, Thomas Classic, Thomas Distribution, FuelBright, Diesel Part Direct and Delphi Parts Store.
