The most recent company to recognise the benefits of membership is Hertford based, non-metallic material and component failure specialist, Polymeric Material Failure Consultants Ltd.

Understanding polymeric material and component failure can be critical to operational reliability as well as the health and safety of personnel. PMFC provides an independent failure investigation service that combines material identification and component damage characterisation, alongside its broad knowledge of engineering hardware, to provide a reliable root cause failure analysis service.  The company uses a range of in-house laboratory techniques to verify the identification and post service condition of polymeric materials and components against the OEM specification.

Another company to appreciate the commercial opportunities afforded by membership is Megator Ltd.  Founded in 1946 by F.W. McCombie in order to develop and market his own invention, the sliding shoe positive displacement pump, the company quickly became established at home in the UK and through a network of agents, exporting too many countries around the world.

Today, Megator has an enviable reputation across the globe for manufacturing innovative and unique positive displacement pumps and pollution control solutions for some of the harshest environments, including marine, mining and general industry, where applications continually exceed customer expectations.

M.J.B Engineering Precision Ltd has also signed up to be a full member of the BPMA.  The business was set-up in 1987 as a sub-contract engineering company manufacturing precision parts for a wide range of clients within the engineering, packaging, printing & food processing industries.

With over 33 years’ experience working on a variety of precision engineered components, including pump parts, this specialist company prides itself on both the quality and accuracy of its manufactured products, along with its customer service credentials.


Steve Schofield, Director and Chief Executive of the BPMA said of the latest additions to membership, “I am delighted to welcome each of these businesses into our association and provide them with all the support services at our disposal. Their respective skillsets and competencies interlink nicely with other members, and we look forward to a developing strong and mutually rewarding relationships with each of them over the coming months."

He added, “To reach a complement of 98 members is really quite something, and testament to the work we undertake on behalf of our members and the wider pump industry, but I now very much look forward to announcing the fantastic milestone of 100 BPMA members before too long!”
