Here at Tapflo HQ we’re used to being extremely busy, but we’re not so used to the office being an oven! If you don’t have aircon in the office, we understand your pain! It’s been a gorgeous summer of amazing temperatures, so we’ve been thriving off of ice lollies and ice cream in the office, surrounded by fans. Luke has spent almost the whole of August surrounded by at least 3 fans, so if you’ve heard him say “Can you speak a little louder, I’m surrounded by fans”… He wasn’t lying!
Congratulations to Mick, who after 20 years of working hard to build Tapflo UK’s reputation and business, received his first £1 million+ order for pumps! An absolutely fantastic achievement that highlights how continued investment in your business and your people can result in such successful orders! Additionally, Tapflo UK kicked off August with the first ever Summer Party which went down as well as the free cocktails! Thank you so much to the management team that organised such a great night. It was a chance for the whole team working across the country to get together in Southampton and celebrate a great first half to the year!

We’ve received large orders for Twin Screw Pumps and for the Robuschi Centrifugal range which we couldn’t be happier about! We have also added BBA’s B-Series Pumps to our range, so keep your eyes peeled for these electrically driven, Self-Priming Centrifugal Pumps!

As well as our pumps flying off the shelves, our sales team had a very important trip to France to visit one of our suppliers. The trip entailed an excellent training session and review of production facilities, as well as a demonstration on pump assembly.
You may have noticed our website looks a bit different… Tapflo’s new website went live this month! The team have been busy building a newer, faster and easier to use website. It’s your usual trustworthy Tapflo in a new and improved package. Tapflo also welcomed Jon Gulliver to the team this month, who will be working on some of the pump projects we have going on under TS Group. Welcome to the team Jon!
We’ve also been busy fundraising for the Society of St James to reach our £1000 target. SSJ are a Hampshire based charity, helping the homeless to build their skills and get the help they need in order to return back to normal daily life. The team are taking part in a Tough Mudder (only a month away… eek!) to raise funds for the charity. You can read more about the work that they do on their website: www.ssj.org.uk We’re trying to reach our £1000 target by running a Tough Mudder on 22nd September. You can keep up with our training progress on the Tapflo LinkedIn account.

Additional fundraising has included the Sales team organising a raffle at the Tapflo Summer Party for a range of prizes, managing to raise over £250. Thank you to the whole team at TS Group for being so generous, and to everyone else who has already donated!

Once a month, we spin the Tombola and pull out 1 or 2 names. The chosen names get to spin the wheel, every other section has a prize. This month, Sue who works in the warehouse won a well-deserved bottle of bubbly – well done Sue!

We’re extremely excited for what September has to offer and can’t wait to tell you all about it!
