Tennants UK Ltd was founded in 1967 and started out in business supplying number plate components to the local motor trade. Over the years Tennants has expanded and become one of the largest suppliers of license plate systems and components in the UK.

Tennants has continued to develop and now has four divisions within the company, all of which relate to retroreflective vinyl, which is why the company considers itself to be the UK's largest independent stockist of reflective sheeting.

Tennants is the founder of Print Pro - claimed to be the only full colour number plate system. Also known as the Business in a Box, Print Pro comes complete with the Konica Minolta Magicolour 5650 laser printer and software, allowing the user to print everything from a standard legal number plate to what is known as a Showplate. The user can add fancy side badges and font styles at the click of a button. This Multi-Function printer will also allow the user to print full colour Health & Safety Signs direct onto self-adhesive vinyl, business cards, banners, coasters and key fobs.

Orafol Europe appointed Tennants in 2007 as its sole distributor for reflective vinyls. With a comprehensive supply chain already in place, Orafol saw Tennants as the ideal partner to establish its product range in the U.K.

Conforming to BS EN 12899-1, the reflective range includes three year Economy; seven year Engineering grade, through to 10 year reflectives for Permanent Road Signs and Micro-Prismatic for Emergency and Highways vehicles.

Tennants U.K. and Orafol Europe offer full warranty on all Orafol roll goods not only for reflective sheeting but for temporary materials such as removable black vinyl and transparent overlays.

Established in 2004 the Signs and Equipment Division is now one of the country's largest road sign manufacturers and is capable of supplying one road sign to a complete Chapter 8 traffic management layout including metal frames, cones, barriers and lamps.

Important changes have recently been made by the Department for Transport, which basically mean the rear of any fleet vehicle working on or near the UK Highway must be suitably striped in 150mm wide red reflective and yellow fluorescent chevrons.

Tennants has considerable expertise in helping to ensure companies comply with Chapter 8 vehicle conspicuity. A comprehensive stock range of conspicuity films as well as full kits are also available for police, ambulance and fire livery.
