2019 Pump Industry Awards winners revealed

05 June, 2019

The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) partnered with some of the leading brands in the pumps sector to bring the 2019 Pump Industry Awards programme to market; including ABB, John Crane, Siemens, SPP Pumps, Tapflo, Tomlinson Hall, WEG, Wilo Xylem Water Solutions, along with media partners Process Engineering and World Pumps.

Held at the Heythrop Park Resort, near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire on Thursday 21 March, the awards evening was attended by some 200 pump industry professionals who between them raised some much-needed funds for WaterAid, the BPMA’s chosen Charity. The Raffle and impromptu auction raised a staggering £2035 on the night, which when matched by the UK Government will be doubled to £4070.00.

Entertainment was provided by The Swinging Little Big Band one of the most original & exciting swing acts in the country, and as always, the evening encouraged a great deal of networking in a competitive but friendly atmosphere, during which the 2019 winners were revealed by celebrity compère, television and radio presenter, Penny Smith.
