2022 Pump Industry Awards – Nominations Now Open

Having finally staged the postponed 2020/21 Pump Industry Awards Ceremony to great applause in late September, the event once again achieved its goal of recognizing and rewarding business and professional excellence right across the pump industry.

However, despite the enforced delay in announcing the latest set of awards winners, time does not stand still and so they are now seeking nominations for the 2022 Pump Industry Awards. With a return to the usual early Spring dateline, the next gala dinner and presentation ceremony will take place on Thursday 31st March, and will again be staged at the impressive Chesford Grange Hotel in Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

The online entry forms, which seek submissions for activities and achievements that took place in the two-year period up to December 2021, are now available on the dedicated awards website – – with the entry deadline set for Friday 7th January 2022. Please make a note of this important date, and begin considering which key developments, initiatives, projects, and successes you will be putting forward for industry recognition and reward.

Throughout the pandemic, and especially through lockdown, the pump sector played a key role in ensuring our utilities, manufacturing processes and essential services were maintained, and so for the 2022 award program, special recognition will go to those companies and individuals who have gone that extra mile to meet any additional demands and challenges brought about by Covid.

This additional acknowledgement will go hand in hand with the existing nine award categories, that collectively honour the full breadth of product and service offering across the pump industry:

  • Product of the Year – Sponsored by Process Engineering
  • Project of the Year – Sponsored by Stuart Turner
  • Environmental Contribution of the Year – Sponsored by SPP Pumps
  • Manufacturer of the Year – Sponsored by WEG UK
  • Distributor of the Year – sponsor sought
  • Supplier of the Year – Sponsored by Wilo
  • Contribution to Skills & Training – sponsor sought
  • Rising Star Award – Sponsored by World Pumps
  • Lifetime Contribution – Sponsored by BPMA

Once again, the Pump Industry Awards has secured the support and backing from a host of leading brands, all of whom recognize the value and importance of promoting excellence across the sector. In addition to the main category sponsors (highlighted above) they are also delighted to have signed up John Crane and Saniflo to support some specific elements of the 2022 presentation evening. Several other sponsorship opportunities exist, so please do get in touch if you would like your brand aligned to outstanding engineering achievement.

Steve Schofield, Director and CEO at the British Pump Manufacturers Association, commented: “Our last awards ceremony was a long time coming, but despite numerous postponements, the 20th Anniversary event was as good as any I can remember. The atmosphere was fantastic, and the competition intense. The quality of entries was extremely high, which simply echoes the creativity and engineering skill that exists within the sector. Our congratulations go to all the winners for their excellent achievements, but our acknowledgment and appreciation must also go to each and every nominee and finalist.

He continued:” Business and professional excellence deserves to be acknowledged and celebrated and the Pump Industry Awards do just that. As such, I would encourage all those involved in this important sector of ours to prepare and submit their entries for the 2022 awards program.”

Long-time supporter, Marek Lukasczcyk, European & Middle East Marketing Manager at WEG (UK) Ltd, added: “It has always been a pleasure to support the BPMA and the wider pump industry by sponsoring this long-standing and prestigious event, which helps promote engineering excellence. The evening is always a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all those in our party, and we look forward to another superb event in March next year.”
