About Us

Here you can find out all about us at Tennants UK Ltd, this online number plate supplies shop and our vision for the future.

Founded in 1967 we are currently based in New Basford, Nottingham. We started out manufacturing number plates ourselves, changes in the industry meant us moving towards creating solutions for others to produce number plates. Now we are one of the premier number plate printing equipment and blank media suppliers in the UK.

Our number plates division provides a range of tiered printing solutions, suitable for either large organisations or independent traders. We offer a made-up plate service where we provide finished number plates for clients who don’t manufacture themselves. And we supply a massive range of blank media to the industry, so our customers can make number plates for every vehicle on the road.

We remain founder owned, meaning we are able to respond quickly and continue to evolve and innovate.
