BPMA celebrates 98 members milestone

news item image
The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) has further increased its membership to a record 98 companies.

The most recent firm to join the BPMA is Hertford-based, non-metallic material and component failure specialist, Polymeric Material Failure Consultants (PMFC). According to the firm, 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 and hardware, to provide a reliable root cause failure analysis service. The firm uses various in-house laboratory techniques to verify the identification and post-service condition of polymeric materials and components against the OFM specification.

Another new company joining the BPMA is Megator. Founded in 1946 by F.W. McCombie to develop and market his own invention, the sliding shoe positive displacement pump, the firm quickly established itself in the UK and, through a network of agents, exported to countries globally.

Today, Megator has an ‘enviable reputation’ for manufacturing innovative and unique positive displacement pumps and pollution control solutions for some of the harshest environments, including marine, mining and general industry.

M.J.B Engineering Precision has also signed up to the BPMA. The firm was established in 1987 as a sub-contract engineering firm, manufacturing precision parts for a wide range of clients in the engineering, packaging, printing, and food processing industries. With more than 33 years’ experience working on a range of precision engineered components, including pump parts, the firm prides itself on the quality and accuracy of its manufactured products and its customer service credentials.

Steve Schofield, director and chief executive of the BPMA, said: “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 developing strong and mutually rewarding relationships with each of them over the coming months.

“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 very much look forward to announcing the fantastic milestone of 100 BPMA members before too long.”
