The agreement will allow the exchange of information between the two associations in areas of common interest affecting pumps, pump sets and sealing products, which could include but will not be restricted to:

•           Technical issues
•           Standards (UK, European and International)
•           Legislation information (European)
•           Energy and environmental issues across Europe
•           Training programmes (and their respective promotion)
 
Having been approved by the Councils of both organisations, the agreement was formally signed by BPMA president Peter Reynold of Grundfos Pumps UK and ESA chairman John Morton of John Crane.
 
Commenting on the signing, BPMA director and CEO Steve Schofield said: “This is an exciting development for both organisations, and one which I’m sure will quickly deliver important benefits for our respective memberships”.
