Awards Triumph For Tomlinson Hall
April 4th 2015
Liquivac’s manufacturer, Tomlinson Hall & Co Ltd, has been recognised for its outstanding contribution to industry with a prestigious award. Tomlinson Hall was awarded the title of Best Small Business in the Teesside Business Awards, which honour the best and most inspiring companies in the Teesside area.
The award was presented to Tomlinson Hall by Small Business category sponsors FW Capital at a glittering ceremony on March 26 at Teesside University.
Tomlinson Hall will now battle it out against firms from the wider North East region for the overall Small Business trophy in the North East Business Awards final, which takes place on April 23 at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield.
Now in their fourth decade, the North East Business Awards are organised by the Middlesbrough Gazette and its sister paper on Tyneside, the Journal, in association with the North East Chamber of Commerce. Companies from Tyneside and Northumberland and Wearside and County Durham - as well as Teesside - take part in the competition.
This awards success follows the company’s January triumph in the North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) Annual Awards, 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.
Tomlinson Hall is an approved global distributor for major industrial pump brands, including DEPA and ELRO. 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.
Colin Simpson, business development director of Tomlinson Hall & Co Ltd, said: “The competition for the Small Business Award was fierce and we were up against some truly innovative companies, so to come out as winners is testimony to the ingenuity, dedication and commitment shown by our staff.
“It’s an honour to receive this recognition from the Teesside business community and the award means a great deal to our team.
“Combined with our recent triumph in the NEPIC Awards and the relaunch of Liquivac, this marks a fantastic start to 2015 and a highly exciting time for Tomlinson Hall.”
Tomlinson Hall has won the UK Pump Distributor of the Year Award four times at British Pump Industry Awards, most recently in April 2014.

We are extremely proud to announce that we have been shortlisted for two awards at this year’s prestigious North East Business Awards. In the Teesside region, we have been recognised for both our innovation and exporting triumphs over the past year.
This week, we had the pleasure of showing a group of Year 10 students from Northfield School, based in Billingham, around our facilities. The aim of the visit – organised for the third year running - was to demonstrate why and how pumps play such an integral role in a huge range of industries whilst also providing young people with knowledge of both the operational and production side of Tomlinson Hall.
We are delighted to announce that Tomlinson Hall has been shortlisted as a finalist in not only one, but two categories at this year’s Pump Industry Awards.
We are thrilled to announce that Tomlinson Hall was crowned as SME Business of the Year at this year’s North East Automotive Alliance Awards.
To celebrate and mark the success of our 100 years in the pump industry, we are delighted to announce the launch of our 100 for 100 campaign, which will see a combination of 12 good causes including the likes of the Salvation Army and The James Cook University Hospital receiving 100 sought after items donated on behalf of Tomlinson Hall.
We distribute pumps for pump manufacturers worldwide...
