Tuffa takes title

Staffordshire-based Tuffa Tanks, which recently supplied an oil tank to the country’s National Memorial Arboretum, has been awarded the title of manufacturer of the year.

The award, which was in recognition of ‘the ever-growing manufacturing sector in Burton, South Derbyshire and Uttoxeter’ was given by the Burton Mail.

Looking for companies that had excelled in the manufacturing sector since July 2012, the judges considered all aspects of the manufacturing process including product design, testing, development, production, marketing, sales and overall business performance.

“This was one proud moment in the history of Tuffa,” said Charlie Goring.

“The years 2013-2015 saw some tremendous changes which were only possible through the hard work and dedication given by all the Tuffa team.

Illustrating the diverse list of Tuffa’s customers, a 1350SLB bunded oil tank was recently delivered to the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas in Staffordshire. The tank will supply a jumbo 200watt heater which warms a large outdoor marquee used for various events throughout the year.
