Teeside, UK-based pump distributor and manufacturer Tomlinson Hall celebrated 100 years in business in June, with impressive sales and contributions to charitable causes.
Founded in 1919 by Alfred Tomlinson and Frank Hall, the company has grown exponentially, from operating in a single unit in Stockton to its current site in Billingham.
The company is the only UK distributor for many leading global industrial brands and is the manufacturer of its own innovative pump technology, the Liquivac®. It is also a founding member of the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA).
“We firmly believe our success is based on a number of factors; the outstanding knowledge and impressive technical capabilities of our team, first and foremost, combined with our passion for constant innovation and the fact that we are not tied to any one pump brand or technology,” said Colin Simpson, business development director at Tomlinson Hall.
“Working with global leaders that use only the very latest, industry leading technology means we can consistently provide our clients with the very best pump solutions tailored to their needs and which meet the requirements of their business and their industry.”
To celebrate its centenary, the company has chosen 12 charitable causes that include giving back to local community projects, national and local charities.
These include the Peoples Kitchen through CEO Sleepout, Billingham South Community Primary School, and The James Cook University Hospital.
Each month, the company will donate 100 items including sleeping bags for the homeless, a £1,000 donation to Make a Wish foundation, as well as 100 food donations to animal charities, under its ‘100 for 100 campaign’.
“It was very important to us that – as part of our centenary celebrations – we did something that reflected the company’s commitment to charitable causes,” explained Simpson. “As such, we devised the 100 for 100 campaign which will see us donate everything from sleeping bags through to food parcels, sanitary products and financial contributions to charitable causes across the region.”
