One of the region's oldest manufacturing companies is celebrating winning a fourth industry awards.

Tomlinson Hall of Billingham, took the Pump Industry Association’s Distributor of Year Award.

Business development director Colin Simpson said: “It’s a great accolade. It’s an industry award and we were nominated by our customers.

“We’re a relatively small family business, there’s only 23 of us but we’ve had double-digit growth over the past year which is fairly substantial for a small industrial pump manufacturer in Teesside.

“Our customers include whisky distilleries in Scotland, Rolls-Royce in the UK and BMW in Europe – anything that requires long suction lines.”

Current chairman and managing director Tony Kelville is the grandson of original co-founder Alfred Tomlinson founder.
