The BPMA has signed up several new members over recent months, which it attributes to nothing more that its consistent and ongoing commitment to fully represent the business interests of UK and Irish suppliers of liquid pumps and pumping equipment on both the domestic and international stage.
One such company who will begin to enjoy the benefits of membership is Sheffield based coupling manufacturer, KTR UK Limited.
