Posted: Wednesday 11th December 2019

For the past twenty years, the Pump Industry Awards has been recognising the best performing pump companies, products and people for their achievements, developments and positive contributions within this important industry sector. The BPMA will again lead the way in championing those who strive for business, professional and engineering excellence, through its staging of the 2020 awards programme.

Nine eagerly contested awards are up for grabs, with two new categories being introduced to help highlight the value and importance of both individual talent and ongoing skills development. The full list of categories is as follows: -

• Technical Innovation, Projects (Sponsored by Stuart Turner)

• Environmental Contribution of the Year (Sponsored by SPP Pumps)

• Manufacturer of the Year (Sponsored by BPMA)

• Distributor of the Year (Sponsored by WEG)

• Supplier of the Year (Sponsored by Wilo)

• Contribution to Skills & Training (Sponsored by Tomlinson Hall)

• Rising Star Award (Sponsored by World Pumps)

• Lifetime Achievement Award (Sponsored by BPMA)

To make a nomination, visit http://pumpindustryawards.com, but be quick to do so, as the entry deadline is Monday 6th January 2020.

Entries are sought for any company, product, application or individual within the pump industry that is worthy of industry recognition and reward. Submissions are not restricted to BPMA membership, and you can put forward as many entries as you like in as many categories as are appropriate. The online entry process couldn’t be easier, so if you want to play your part in bringing engineering excellence to the fore, please do visit the dedicate awards website, and submit your entries.

Richard Harden, BPMA President, says of the awards, “The pump industry continues to be a hot bed of competitiveness, where the constant search for greater operational performance and improved efficiencies, demands that all those operating within this important sector be at the top of their game. This BPMA backed awards programme allows the pump industry to come together in recognition of that drive for engineering excellence. I would therefore encourage anyone involved in the manufacture and supply of pumps to get involved with the awards and help celebrate those endeavours.”

The prestigious Awards Dinner and Presentation Ceremony will take place on Thursday 19th March 2020 at the delightful 4 Star Chesford Grange Hotel, near Warwick Castle. Combining the character of an historic manor house with bright, contemporary meeting spaces, surrounded by 17 acres of beautiful Warwickshire countryside, this impressive venue is centrally located and within quick reach of both motorway and rail routes, ensuring easy access from all over the UK for the 250+ guests attending the awards evening.

A full complement of Sponsors has once again been secured for this important industry event, with each one contributing to the overall success of the Awards Programme and Presentation Dinner. They include ABB, John Crane, Process Engineering, SPP Pumps, Stuart Turner, Tomlinson Hall, WEG Electric Motors, Wilo UK, World Pumps and of course the BPMA.

As a new category sponsor this year, Morgan Warren-Ross, Marketing Director at Stuart Turner, commented, “Having attended the awards dinner over recent years, we have been impressed with the structure and presentation of the event, and of course the opportunity it provides to network with senior figures from across the pump industry. This success has led us to increase our engagement going forward, and so as a further commitment to both the event and the BPMA, we are delighted to be sponsoring the ‘Project of the Year’ category in the 2020 awards programme.”

The ‘Online Entry’ Forms will remain available for completion until 5.00pm on Monday 6th January, so if you want industry-wide recognition for a job well done, be it for technical innovation or application know-how, for environmental consideration or distribution and supply, please make a note of this key date.
