J. A. Thomas Diesel Fuel Injection was formed in 1977 and quickly became well known for their technical knowledge and skill in repairing diesel fuel injection systems.
In 1978, we became Bosch agents
In 1986, the business expanded and moved to Ellingham Industrial Estate in Ashford, where we have been ever since.
In 1994 we were promoted from Service Dealer status with Stanadyne to the Central Distributor for the UK and Ireland.
In 1998 the company changed to Thomas Auto Injection Ltd.
And in 2002 three long serving employees, Richard, Neil & Kathy, bought the company. With a fresh outlook and renewed passion and enthusiasm, business diversified and took off under the leadership of our three new directors.
The Great Fire
In 2005 a fire ripped through our warehouse destroying the majority of our stock and storage facilities.
We thought it was the end of Thomas Auto Injection Ltd.
However, over the next two to three years, we slowly but surely re-built our facilities and stock bigger and better than before.
Now with a state of the art testing facility, workshop and distribution centre all under one roof, Thomas Auto Injection Centre were back in business.
2012 saw the launch of our online shop, Diesel Parts Direct. Starting with just 200 products this has now expanded to over 7000 product lines available, with more being added regularly.
