Entries for the annual awards, held in association with the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA), were submitted throughout the last twelve months. In January, the Pump Industry Awards panel met at the BPMA’s offices to review the entries in each category.
After discussion the panel selected the finalists, which were then put to a public vote through the month of February to determine the winners.
On 23 March PIA and BPMA held a gala awards ceremony conducted by Anna Williamson to publicly announce the winners and present them with their prizes.
Established in 1941, the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) is a not-for-profit trade association representing the interests of UK and Irish manufacturers and suppliers of liquid pumps and other pump related equipment.
