Pump firm’s German deal
November 6th 2007
Published: Oct 19 2007 Evening Gazette
TEESSIDE pump manufacturer Tomlinson Hall has secured a multi-million pound contract.
The Billingham-based company, which last year invested more than £1m in a new site, has struck the deal with one of Europe's leading manufacturers.
The Teesside firm has forged the partnership with German-based Crane, one of Europe's largest pump manufacturers, to become the supply and distribution base for its Deoa and Elro products within the UK.
Sales director of Tomlinson Hall, Colin Simpson, said: "Both companies have enjoyed a strong working relationship for some time and this partnership arrangement will allow all UK orders to be channelled and dispatched from Tomlinson Hall's head office in Billingham, rather than from Crane's manufacturing site in Germany as before.
"Demand for both Depa and Elro product ranges has grown considerably, especially within the UK's food and beverage, chemical processing and pharmaceutical industries.
"This streamlined operation will allow us to offer quick turnaround and a next or same day delivery service in most cases.
"Customers will rapidly realise the benefits of this joint partnership agreement and it will allow us to further enhance our professional customer service."
Tomlinson Hall moved from its Boathouse Lane head office in Stockton, to larger fully integrated premises at Cowpen Lane Industrial Estate, Billingham, last year.
It is the first time that the company has relocated to new premises in almost 90 year of business.
The move was part of the company's long-term expansion plan to grow into new European markets.
The business was established in 1919 by Alf Tomlinson and originally traded from an attic room selling hardware and engineering supplies to local customers.
The company is now one of the UK's leading pump manufacturers with distributors in more than 27 countries.
Following on from our Royal Visit earlier in the year, we were so impressed by the contribution made by Members of the Cleveland Police Dog team, that we engaged with them further to show our appreciation.
Tomlinson Hall is honoured to help support Mike McGrother and all his efforts with creating awareness, knowledge and the prevention of suicide amongst men in the North East with the One More Light project this Christmas.
Continuing Tomlinson Hall’s 100-year celebration the team completed a 100-mile bike ride in aid of Help for Heroes.
Join Tomlinson Hall as we raise money for Help the Heroes as part of our 100 for 100 charity campaign. On 11th November, to pay our respect on Remembrance Day, the team will be cycling 100 miles between them on an exercise bike located within our office premises in Billingham.
As part of our ongoing CSR activities and in celebration of our 100th year in business, we have proudly sponsored a local football team – FC Hartlepool.
We distribute pumps for pump manufacturers worldwide...
Tomlinson Hall is the sole UK distributor for DEPA, ELRO and Richter pumps.
