Pump sector finally enjoys long-awaited awards01 October 2021

After a nineteen-month pandemic-induced postponement, the 2020/21 Pump Industry Awards ceremony was finally staged at the Chesford Grange Hotel in Warwickshire on 23rd September.

The event not only celebrated business and professional excellence across the pump industry, but also its own 20th anniversary. Hosted by Philippa Forrester of Tomorrow’s World and Robot Wars fame, the event provided an opportunity for pump people to reunite and reconnect with friends, colleagues, and clients.

Colin Simpson, business development director at Tomlinson Hall summed up the feeling of all by saying: “After the hiatus imposed on us all by COVID it was an absolute pleasure to be out and amongst friends and colleagues at this year’s awards ceremony; there was a real buzz around the whole evening. Folk were genuinely pleased to be able to socialise and once again share a wonderfully organised event.” He added: “I was amazed at the quality of all this year’s entries, and it is testament to the strength of the British Pump Industry that the awards are so well supported. Thanks to all involved in its hosting and delivery.”
