Owner and Founder of Tranquim Auto Electrics

Sandro Tranquim founded Tranquim Auto Electrics in 2006, but has much more of a story to his portfolio and not to mention over 25 years of experience in the motor industry.

Sandro Tranquim’s role model isn’t your everyday business icon. Where most people his age would likely refer to Tesla’s Elon Musk, Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin, or maybe even Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, the 39-year-old is inspired by Linfox patriarch, Lindsay Fox.

Starting out with just one truck in 1956, a Ford F500 V8, the now 80-year-old has created one of the largest logistics firms in the world, with 36,000 employees in 11 countries and annual revenue in excess of $6 billion, according to Business Insider.

Just as Lindsay Fox disrupted the transport sector half a century ago, Sandro is hoping to change the traditional notion of heavy vehicle maintenance with his family-run operation, Tranquim, based out of Melbourne’s west.

Born in Mozambique and raised in Zimbabwe, Sandro was trained in the auto-electrical trade by his father before receiving formal training as an engineering technician in the UK, which equipped him with the necessary skills and ambition to establish a small business in Western Australia. In late 2015, he then relocated to Victoria with the goal to rebuild his business from scratch – and make Lindsay Fox proud.

As such, the revamped business’s point of difference is to remove the pain from the process, as he puts it, regardless how big or small the job.

To do so, he has put his company on wheels: A fleet of three fully equipped service vans is now travelling Victoria 24/7 to provide high quality repair and maintenance services “and make our customers smile,” he says. Focusing on auto-electrical, mechanical and air-conditioning repairs across the waste management, haulage and earthmoving industries, Sandro says the business has grown from a one-man operation to four full-time staff in the first year alone…
