So if you or your company have a pump related success to shout about, then this awards programme provides the perfect platform. But you had better be quick, as the closing date for all entries is Friday 6th January 2023. Entering is simple, and by putting forward a nomination you are demonstrating confidence in the quality of your work, people, products and projects.
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, will remain on the dedicated awards website – until the entry deadline of 5.00pm on Friday 6th January 2023. Please make a note of this important date, and begin considering which key developments, initiatives, staff, and successes you will be putting forward for industry wide recognition.
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 the 2023 awards programme, will again give special recognition 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 eight award categories, that collectively honour the full breadth of product and service delivery by the pump industry:

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. Business and professional excellence deserves to be acknowledged and celebrated and these 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.”
