Thule TracRac Accessories

Based in Fall River, Massachusetts, in a renovated mill building, TracRac was established in 1995 by its inventor and long time President Tom Derecktor. Tom was an engineer who grew up in his family’s shipping business building world class luxury yachts and working ships and also had experience working for a high-end racing bicycle manufacturing company. The original product design was born of Tom’s frustration with his inability to use his truck in the way he wanted and the lack of good truck racks on the market that would meet his needs and his quality values. Like most entrepreneurs, he set out to solve the problem himself by designing and building the forerunner to today’s TracRac® system. His new invention enabled him to:

  • Carry the different kinds of equipment and materials he needed to carry at work and on the weekends (he is an avid outdoorsman/sailor). His truck needed to carry ladders, piping, lumber, compressors, welding equipment, kayaks, wind surfers and small sailboats.

  • Have something that would stand up to the environment and was ''built to last.''

  • Would encompass the passion for elegant design that was ingrained in him and reinforced in his experience in the high quality yacht and bicycle market. Build something that would look good on his brand new truck and continue to look good for the life of the truck and beyond.
