The recognition programs were developed as part of ITT’s Pump Appreciation Day, a worldwide celebration of pumps as the heart of industry that will take place on 14 April 2015.
 
“The Heart of Industry and Pulse of Industry award programs are a unique way to recognize the dedicated people and organizations that power our industry,” said Aris Chicles, president of ITT’s Industrial Process business. “We look forward to celebrating these talented groups during our fourth annual Pump Appreciation Day celebration.”
 
The Heart of Industry Award recognizes industrial operations for excellence in using pump technology to improve plant processing, satisfy customers and enhance the modern way of life. Awards will go to companies or plants nominated by ITT Goulds Pumps sales offices and distributors, with a limit of one award-winner per office.
 
Pump industry professionals are also invited to submit nominations for the Pulse of Industry Honor Roll. This individual recognition program is intended for people who want to commend co-workers and colleagues for their exceptional work in pump operations, maintenance or optimization.
 
An online nomination form is available at www.PumpAppreciationDay.com
 
Nominations must be submitted by 13 March 2015.
