This BPMA backed awards programme allows the pump industry to come together in recognition of that drive for engineering excellence.”

This success has led us to increase our engagement going forward, and so as a further commitment to both the event and the BPMA, we are delighted to be sponsoring the ‘Supplier of the Year’ category in the 2019 awards programme.”
