Maintaining the early Spring timeline, the next the Gala Dinner and Presentation Ceremony will take place on Thursday 16th March at our fantastic new venue – the Hilton at St George’s Park in Burton on Trent.
Situated on the edge of the National Forest, this impressive hotel is part of St. George’s Park - the training ground for all 28 English national football teams - and recognised the World over as the Home of English Football. Sporting excellence is synonymous with this venue, and early next year it will also become the location for heralding engineering excellence across the pump sector.
The online entry forms, which seek submissions for activities and achievements that took place in the 18-month period up to December 2022, are now available on the dedicated awards website - www.pumpindustryawards.com - with the entry deadline set for Friday 6th January 2023. Please make a note of this important date, and begin considering which key developments, initiatives, projects, staff, and successes you will be putting forward for industry recognition and reward.
The pump sector continues to play a crucial role in ensuring our food production, utilities, manufacturing processes, transportation and other essential services are maintained, and for the 2023 award programme, special recognition will again go to those companies and individuals who have gone that extra mile to meet, and more often exceed, the demands and challenges presented by the sectors served.
This recognition and acknowledgement will be represented by nine award categories, that collectively honour the full breadth of product and service delivery by the pump industry:
- Product of the Year - Sponsored by Process Engineering
- Project of the Year - Sponsored by Stuart Turner
- Environmental Contribution of the Year - Sponsored by SPP Pumps
- Manufacturer of the Year - Sponsored by WEG UK
- Distributor of the Year – Sponsored by Stuart Turner
- Supplier of the Year - Sponsored by Wilo
- Contribution to Skills & Training – Crest Pumps
- Rising Star Award - Sponsored by World Pumps
- Lifetime Contribution - Sponsored by BPMA
Once again, we have secured the support and backing from a host of leading brands, all of whom recognise the value and importance of promoting excellence across the sector. In addition to our main category sponsors (highlighted above) there are also other sponsorship options to help support specific elements of the 2023 presentation evening. Several opportunities still exist, so please get in touch if you would like your brand aligned to outstanding engineering achievement.
Steve Schofield, Director and CEO at the British Pump Manufacturers Association, commented: “This year’s awards ceremony – the 21st such event - was as good as any I can remember. The atmosphere was fantastic, and the competition intense. The quality of entries was extremely high, which simply echoes the creativity and engineering skill that exists within this key sector. Our congratulations go to all the winners for their excellent achievements, but our acknowledgment and appreciation must also go to each and every nominee and finalist.
He continued:” Business and professional excellence deserves to be acknowledged and celebrated and the Pump Industry Awards do just that. So, I would once again encourage all those involved in the pump sector to prepare and submit their entries for the 2023 awards programme.”
Long-time supporter, Marek Lukasczcyk, European & Middle East Marketing Manager at WEG (UK) Ltd, added: “It has always been a pleasure to support the BPMA and the wider pump industry by sponsoring this long-standing and prestigious event, which helps promote engineering excellence. The evening is always a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, and we look forward to another superb event in March next year.”
