Tomlinson Hall & Co Ltd Triumphs In North East Business Awards
May 1st 2015
Tomlinson Hall & Co Ltd, is on a high after winning a prestigious regional award.
Tomlinson Hall picked up the Small Business trophy in the final of the North East Business Awards, which took place on April 23 at Hardwick Hall in County Durham.
This success follows Tomlinson Hall’s triumph in the Teesside Business Awards in March, where we won the Small Business award: it then battled it out with the winners of the Tyneside and Northumberland and Durham and Wearside Business Awards to take first place in the main regional final.
Organised by Newcastle-based newspaper The Journal and its sister paper on Teesside, The Gazette, the annual competition is held in association with the North East Chamber of Commerce. More than 550 business people from across the North of England and beyond attended April’s showpiece final.
Tomlinson Hall is an approved global distributor for major industrial pump brands, including DEPA and ELRO, as well as manufacturing Liquivac.
The firm, which has operated since 1919 and is a co-founder of the Pump Distributors Association, has seen highly impressive sales growth in the last three years. It has grown sales for global pump manufacturer CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions – manufacturers of DEPA and ELRO pumps – year and year and last year recorded its best annual sales results for Crane since its appointment by the company in 2006.
Its sales performance, commitment to staff development, close ties to the local community and a recent re-launch of Liquivac - plus a subsequent export push for the product - all contributed to the firm being honoured with the Small Business of the Year title.
Colin Simpson, business development director of Tomlinson Hall & Co Ltd, said: “To receive the Small Business award for Teesside was a great honour, and then to triumph in the overall North East final topped off a fantastic first quarter on 2015 for Tomlinson Hall.
“This success is down to the hard work of all our staff and is a major achievement for a company with strong roots in North East England.
“Companies from a wide range of sectors competed in the awards so it’s very pleasing that through Tomlinson Hall, the pump industry was recognised in such a high profile event.”
Tomlinson Hall has garnered a string of awards this year, with its recent successes following the company’s triumph in the North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) Annual Awards, held in January, where it was named SME of the Year. The NEPIC awards recognise outstanding achievement in the process sector, with NEPIC – the first cluster in the UK to receive the Gold Label for Cluster Management Excellence – boasting hundreds of member companies from across a wide range of industries.
The company has won the UK Pump Distributor of the Year Award four times at British Pump Industry Awards, most recently in April 2014.
Tomlinson Hall is helping to support the scientists of the future by donating £2000 to Billingham South Community Primary School.
Tomlinson Hall was named Engineering Firm of the Year 2018 at the North East of England Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) Annual Industry Awards on January 19 and received £2000 to donate to a local school of its choice to support STEM-related projects.
