About my Institution:
Timstar is a family owned company founded by the previous owner Tim Wilton-Morgan in 1970 while he was still at school! Tim started supplying schools with living and preserved materials, aided in the deliveries by his mother & father. His wife, Sue, joined him in the business in 1994. From humble beginnings in a shed close to Oulton Park racetrack, Timstar moved to a semi-detached poultry barn, then to a former airfield, then to a new industrial unit in the centre of Crewe and lastly to purpose designed premises to suit our requirements. Timstar has evolved into a company that supplies all manner of science teaching equipment resources and services. We are now researching the prospects for new premises to accommodate our predicted future expansion.
Following a period of sustained growth and the introduction in December 2005 of a new team of Technical Sales Advisors, who are the cream of their profession, Phil Tomlinson was appointed as Managing Director in January 2006 to assist in managing the growth and ensure our service to customers remained the best it could be. Phil grew up in the education business as his father Sir Mike is a former head of Ofsted.
In 2006 we acquired the rights to the Nicholl Education range of products. These UK designed and manufactured products provide a unique and innovative offering. 2007 saw the acquisition of Finlayson Scientific, a family business based in the North East. This allowed greater penetration into this region, and retained the family service that Finlayson customer's enjoyed.
In 2009 Tim retired passing on ownership to The Wall family Enterprise. Timstar retains its independance whilst benefitting from being part of a successful group of companies. The Wall Family Enterprise is a family owned business committed to providing the funding and autonomy required to allow their businesses flourish.
