16 Jul 2019
Teesside pump distributor and manufacturer Tomlinson Hall marked its 100th year in business with a charitable campaign to help hundreds of individuals across the region.
It chose a combination of 12 charitable causes including local community projects, national and local charities, Each month the company is donating 100 much sought-after items such as sleeping bags for the homeless, a £100 donation – which became £1000 - to Make a Wish Foundation and 100 food donations to animal causes.
Business development director Colin Simpson said: “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.”
Founded in 1919 by Alfred Tomlinson and Frank Hall, the company has grown hugely from its original base –a single unit in Stockton – to its current 1.5-acre site in Billingham.
Today, it is sole UK distributor for many of the world’s leading industrial brands and founder member of the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA)
Added Simpson: “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.
“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.”
The centenary regional charity recipients include the Peoples Kitchen, CEO Sleepout, Billingham South Community Primary School, and The James Cook University Hospital among many others.
