Employee Owned Business
Congratulations to Tomlinson Ltd. a BPIF member based in Leicester, on recently becoming an Employee Owned Business.
Tomlinson, which was formed in 1927, has celebrated 90 years in business with this most recent development in its history. The company, which produces hot foil stamping and embossing dies in a variety of metals, has been based at its Oakland Road premises since 1964. Managing Director Lynne Tomlinson-Hands, grand-daughter of the founder, also has a seat on the Midland Regional Board.
Lynne said, "Our business is based on quality and customer service. You can only deliver this with the input of the whole company, so when considering an exit strategy leaving the business in the hands of the team to continue this ethos seemed a logical thing to do." While Lynne will still be involved in the business for the immediate future, three new directors have been appointed to take the business forward; Ginger Singh Kauldhar, Business Development Director, who has just returned from a very successful Labelexpo, Jon Colburt, Production Director and Jim Littler, Finance Director.
Dawn Reid, Regional Director for the area, added, "The company is a market leader in a specialist sector, so it's great news that the employees now have an overt vested interest in the business and maintaining their great reputation going forward."
Located at stand B371 there are a several BPIF experts on hand over the four days, covering a wide variety of topics to help with your business.
In a bid to remain fully relevant and accessible to its members, the BPIF has rebranded its Consultancy department to BPIF Specialist Services, following a member discussion forum and a department restructure.
