Pump Industry Awards 2011 - winners

Now in its eighth year, the Pump Industry Awards rewards companies, innovations and people that have achieved the highest standards and helped drive the pump industry forward. Held in association with the British Pump Manufacturers Association and World Pumps, the awards focus on key areas of manufacture and supply, including innovation and achievement, energy saving, engineering excellence, customer care and employee motivation.  An important part of the evening was the grand charity raffle and auction on behalf of the charity WaterAid. This year the charity is celebrating its 30th anniversary and has reached more than 14 million people with access to water and sanitation since it was established in 1981. This year, the raffle raised more than £2,445 for WaterAid’s work, enabling it to transform the lives of some of the poorest people in the world with access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education and help them take their first steps out of poverty.  The Award Winners have been announced.
