UK and Irish association the British Pump Manufacturers' Association (BPMA) has agreed to freeze membership fees at the rate set in 2018.
Offering real value for money, historically any increase in annual membership fees has been in line with inflation and increased operational costs, which has recently been around 2.5% per annum.
However, in 2018 the BPMA Council agreed that a reduced increase of 1.5% should be levied. All members were also to receive a copy of the World Pump Report, published by Oxford Economics, as part of the membership package.
The approach was well received by members, which has led the council and president this year to agree once more to issue the World Pump Report free of charge and freeze membership fees at the 2018 rate.
Established as a not-for-profit trade association in 1941, the BPMA champions the production, distribution and installation of legally compliant, energy efficient and correctly specified pumps and related equipment and systems.
