Tomlinson Hall strengthens national links with new partnership


19th August 2016

Billingham-based pump distributor and manufacturer Tomlinson Hall & Co Ltd has entered into a new partnership to further expand its UK market reach.

The North East firm has announced that Hampshire–headquartered Crest Pumping Services will act as a sub-distributor for the DEPA and ELRO pump ranges manufactured by US-based multinational CRANE ChemPharma & Energy Flow Solutions – for which Tomlinson Hall is an approved global distributor.

Tomlinson Hall chose Crest Pumping Services as a sub-distributor for DEPA and ELRO because of the company’s strong presence in southern England and its links to the chemical processing industry.

CRANE’s ELRO peristaltic pumps are available in mobile and stationary versions, while DEPA’s range of air operated diaphragm pumps includes metallic, non-metallic, sanitary, high pressure and powder pumps. DEPA diaphragm pumps are the only diaphragm pumps within the UK to achieve ATEX Zone 0 certification, allowing for pumping in explosive or dangerous environments.

A joint founding member of the Pump Distributors Association, Tomlinson Hall is an approved global distributor of many leading pump brands, such as Grundfos, Flux and Flowserve, and offers a total service to industry – including problem solving, pump selection and supply, site visits, servicing and repairs.

The company, which was founded in 1919, also manufactures its own innovative liquid ring vacuum pump, Liquivac, which can perform a huge range of operations across a wide range of industries.

Crest Pumping Services, which is based in New Milton, was launched in 2011 and supplies a variety of chemical-resistant pumps to the process industries. It is the sister company of Crest Pumps, which has manufactured chemical resistant pumps since 1973 and specialises in mechanically sealed centrifugal pumps.

Colin Simpson, business development director of Tomlinson Hall, said: “We’re delighted to announce this new partnership with Crest Pumping Services, which has a wealth of expertise in the process sector. We have enjoyed working with the Crest team for many years and by forging closer links, we can help to expand the presence of the DEPA and ELRO brands in southern England.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for both companies and we are looking forward to providing pump solutions from DEPA and ELRO to even more customers via this partnership.”

James Dashwood, managing director of Crest Pumping Services and Crest Pumps, said: “Crest has worked closely with Tomlinson Hall over many years, supplying each other’s products to their local markets, and this new agreement cements the relationship.

“We view our ability to offer DEPA and ELRO to our customers as an important step in our development and as a specialist in corrosion resistant pumps, it is particularly exciting to now have DEPA’s non-metallic air operated diaphragm pumps in our product portfolio.

“Tomlinson Hall and CRANE have the same philosophy as ourselves when it comes to offering outstanding customer service and technical support, and we are delighted to now be a formal distributor for Tomlinson Hall.”
Tomlinson Hall works with high profile clients in the UK and overseas markets, including in Europe, the Middle East, North America, South America and Asia. It has seen significant sales success over the last year for a range of global pump manufacturers.

Tomlinson Hall was named Distributor of the Year in the Pump Industry Awards in 2009/10, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2016. It also won the Small Business of the Year award in 2015’s North East Business Awards, and scooped the SME of the Year title in the North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) Annual Awards 2015.
