Caravan Industry Victoria mourns the passing of industry icon, Tom Henry
Earlier this month, Caravan Industry Victoria sadly informed Members, Life Members, and Hall of Famers of the passing of Tom Henry. Tom passed away Monday 31 July 2023 at the age of 103.
Thomas William Russell Henry, better known as Tom Henry was born on 22 September 1919. Tom worked at the British Tobacco Company, then Noble Trail and Brown & Watson before starting Melbourne Trailer & Caravan Supplies which specialised in quality running gear, axels, springs & hubs and built a terrific reputation for extraordinary service that was so successful they were acquired by DEXKO Global through its Australian arm AL-KO International in December 2016.
In 2019, Tom was inducted into the prestigious Caravan Industry Hall of Fame for his service to the caravan industry. CIV not only considers Tom an industry pioneer but as a true gentleman, mourning his passing and extending their deepest condolences to the Henry family.
