“The pump industry as an enabling industry for all kinds of fluid transport has achieved a high reputation within and outside Europe,” said Dr Brodersen. “This is mainly due to the fact that we are strongly engaged in sustainable solutions for energy savings with direct benefits for the environment, our customers and the competitiveness of our member companies. I am glad to be engaged in this process. I will stay this course and give my best to increase our efforts and communication to European officials and other stakeholders.”
