Our Royal Visit – In Photo’s
September 17th 2019
September was an incredible month for Tomlinson Hall. We celebrated 100 years in business and to commemorate such an incredible accomplishment, were rewarded with a Royal Visit by HRH, The Duke of Gloucester KG GCVO.
We wanted to share with you a snapshot of the visit in photos:
On arrival, HRH was greeted by pupils from Tomlinson Hall’s supported school for - Billingham South Community Primary - before meeting local dignitaries and our directors led by MD and third-generation Tomlinson, Tony Keville.
Mrs Snowdon presented to HRH: Cllr Lynn Hall, the Mayor of Stockton Borough Council, and from Tomlinson Hall;
Mr Tony Keville, Managing Director, Mr Colin Simpson, Business Development Director, and Mr Marc Dale, Sales Director.
On arrival into our reception area, HRH was shown a visual representation of the company’s heritage and history in Teesside.
HRH received a live demonstration from Tony and Michael, our Workshop Manager of Tomlinson Hall’s own brand and solely manufactured British Pump, the Liquivac.
As part of his visit, HRH met members of the Tomlinson Hall team and received a tour of our 1.5-acre office and workshop sites.
HRH completed his visit by unveiling a commemorative plaque to mark our centenary milestone.
Recalling on a significant day, our Business Development Director, Colin Simpson, said: “We were delighted and honoured to welcome HRH, The Duke of Gloucester to our premises and to celebrate our 100th year in business.
“Our 100 successful years in business, reflects the continued commitment and loyalty of our workforce who have played an enormous part in making Tomlinson Hall the successful business it is today.”
Following on from the visit, Tomlinson Hall held a small ceremony to present long service awards to several members of the workforce.
Over the past couple of months, we have seen a significant increase in activity for our maintenance and service department.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, our workshop, like all other businesses, has had to make significant changes to embrace the new and safe way of working, ensuring our staff are protected at all times.
We are delighted to have received a Mayor’s Civic Award in recognition of the company’s contribution to the local community.
We are delighted to have recently added a new brand to our already extensive pump portfolio, as we are now working in partnership with a leading European manufacturer, SAMOA. As a specialist in equipment for fluid transfer, dispensing, dosing, recovery and inventory control, SAMOA designs and manufactures a range of pump equipment and is well-known across the globe.
