    What has the NAA done for us? by TISS

    TISS is known for its market-leading ‘TankSafe’ range of fuel security and safety products, which contain the award-winning ‘Impregnable’ device – the only device that completely prevents ‘skimming’ of fuel, third party fuel theft, overfilling and diesel spills. Marketing Manager Tom Davis examines what the company has gained by being members of the NAA…

    Tom says that it’s great to have an over-arching organisation representing the automotive industry in the North West. Here are some benefits that TISS has enjoyed from NAA membership.

    NAA Business Excellence Project Funding

    The funding for the production of animations to convey what the company’s products do was a great help towards the goal of becoming more visible to an international audience. Since completing the project, we now use the finished animations to help at all our international shows. Understanding of our products in a multilingual environment is crucial when attracting new distributors and partners. We have also produced multilingual fitting instructions which are now standard issue throughout the world.

    NAA Awards – International Trade Award/Company of the Year 2014

    This NAA award has added credibility to our company when operating in a national and international environment. It is very well received internationally, particularly when we mention some of the other global organisations we were competing against.


    The NAA has facilitated great opportunities to meet other companies within the industry who can provide assistance – for example TISS met its Business Excellence project provider at an NAA networking event (see above).

    Sharing of Best Practice

    The NAA also provides many unique opportunities to visit and meet other businesses and learn from them.

    Access to discount courses

    The company’s Technical Director has participated in a number of courses to improve the company’s quality control, efficiency and best practice.

    TISS would have no hesitation in recommending other companies to join as NAA members.
