A UK manufacturer of an anti-syphon device has won two awards at an industry event.

Blackpool-based TISS UK produce the TankSafe, a product that prevents skimming and diesel spills in addition to siphoning. The firm had been entered into Company of the Year and the International Trade categories at the Northwest Automotive Alliance (NAA) awards held in Cheshire this week.

Commenting on receiving the two awards, Matthew Rose, Director of TISS, said, “We’re absolutely delighted and surprised to have received both the International Trade and the Company of the Year Award from the Northwest Automotive Alliance. We are a small company so it is particularly gratifying when we are up against larger global household brands. We are delighted that our strategy for international growth is paying dividends and this award reflects the hard work of all our staff, as well as the support we have received from organisations such as the NAA, UK Trade and Investment as well as the NWL Chamber of Commerce.”

Carol Holden, NAA Chief Executive, said, “This year’s Awards Dinner shows that the Northwest Automotive Alliance is supporting supply chain companies to grow, it is helping to make buyers aware of them, and many of the companies are already successfully exporting. We have a range of SMEs that are now ready for significant growth.”

In October TISS was presented with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade as it has built up an order book of more than 1,000 clients spread over six continents since the firm started selling overseas in 2009.
