March 12 2004. The management of Tom Walker Direct placed the company into liquidation last month, but have quickly re-organised to become Tom Walker Distribution Limited.

Tom Walker himself explained: "The problem with Tom Walker Direct is that we set it up basically operating as an agent for a number of key brands. Although we had invested heavily in the infrastructure of the company, supply problems, particularly with Nava / GP One helmets meant that we were unable to hit our targets and meet our profitability projections, we really had no choice but to put the company into liquidation.

"Our relationship with our other main brands remained strong and we so we have launched Tom Walker Distribution Ltd. with AXO road and off-road clothing, Driver Helmets, Diadora road boots, Laser Exhausts, Spool clothing and Redkite clothing. The new company gives us a fresh start with this strong product range and we have already had a positive response and support from the trade."

The new company has taken this opportunity to re-organise its sales force and are now recruiting sales people to cover the south/southwest and also the band across the midlands region.
