The most recent company to recognise the benefits of membership and achieve the accolade of being the BPMA’s 100th member is Surrey based, repair, service, and supply specialist, PumpServ.
Formerly known as London Pumps the business is now part of the Keltic Engineering Group, which has vast experience in the pump industry. Currently the group employs over 75 people and has nationwide coverage with warehouse and offices in Surrey and Hampshire, and regionally based engineers operating throughout the UK.
PumpServ is one of the top three distributors in the UK, supplying major brands such as Armstrong, Dab, Ebara, Grundfos, KSB, Sulzer, Wilo, and Xylem.

Steve Schofield, Director and Chief Executive of the BPMA said of this latest milestone achievement: “I am thrilled to welcome these three 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 developing strong and mutually rewarding relationships with each of them over the coming months."
He added: “This would have been a significant achievement in any year, but to have secured our 100th member during the challenging times we have all been experiencing throughout 2020 is really quite remarkable.
