10th Year Birthday Anniversary – Ten Years Of Happy Travels!

Posted On: General trunki Trunki Gossip

2016 sees Trunki turn 10 years old!…

It was in 2006 creator and Trunki daddy Rob Law appeared on BBC One’s Dragons Den, with his ride-on suitcase concept for globe-trotting tots. Ten years on with over 3 million cases sold, Rob Law hasn’t looked back.

“It’s a tremendous achievement to have reached such a momentous milestone, it’s been a 10 year rollercoaster ride of massive highs and lows. Receiving the first container of Trunkis at Avonmouth docks in 2006, was the start of a very exciting journey and a huge learning curve!

“Looking back my highlight has to be the people I’ve worked alongside over the years. The team at Trunki HQ and at our factory Magma Moulding are passionate about making family travel fun and always go the extra mile to make our customers happy – that is what’s has made us so successful.”

To coincide with the birthday the company has launched a brand new carry case for the next generation of connected travelers called Jurni. Four years in design Jurni is a sit-on, carry-on suitcase with a quick access pop-out pod for tech, a seat to rest on and in-line wheels to glide along while in queues through airports. It is Law and his company’s biggest innovation since the arrival of the original Trunki.

Since Trunki launched in May 2006, it is now available in 100 countries, with consumers spending over £100 million on his brand. Trunki employs 30 people at their funky head office in Bristol called The Mothership, and a further 44 people at its UK manufacturing and distribution facility – Magma Moulding – in Plymouth.

To celebrate our birthday, and to say a huge thank you to everyone that has supported us, we are offering 10% off our whole range* and £10 off Made4Me for the next 10 days (20th-30th of July)!
