Robert and Chris have spent their lives living, breathing and driving adventure. Their shared love of Land Rover Defenders sprang from growing up in a remote part of South West England, famous for its rugged moorland and windswept coastlines.
Beyond Britain’s borders, Robert and Chris have driven Land Rover Defenders in some of the world’s most challenging terrain, across Africa and the Northern Territories in Australia. These robust, British-made icons, coped admirably in the harsh environment of the African wilderness and survived the brutal conditions of the Australian outback – from maintaining dirt tracks to herding buffalo.
Years later, Chris settled in Vermont, keen to pass on his love of the outdoors by offering backcountry adventures in the mountainous and forested terrain of New England. Meanwhile, Robert ran a successful manufacturing company in London where he developed a head for business.
Their continuing friendship, strengthened by a shared love of adventure, the great outdoors and Land Rover Defenders, led to the founding of the Transatlantic Trading Company (TATC).
THE FREEDOM DEFENDERS GIVE YOU, THE ADVENTURES YOU HAVE, THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT YOU Make AND THE MEMORIES THAT YOU CREATE; MAKES OWNING ONE OF THESE VEHICLES TRULY SPECIAL.
