Call for Nominations – Pump Appreciation Day

Nominations are open for the third annual Heart of Industry Awards and Pulse of Industry Honor Roll. These recognition programs were developed as part of Pump Appreciation Day – a worldwide celebration of pumps as the heart of industry that will take place Tuesday, April 8, sponsored by ITT Corporation’s Goulds Pumps, PRO Services and Bornemann brands.

“Pumps function as the heart of industry, and our organization takes pride in celebrating the talented people and organizations that keep that heart beating smoothly and efficiently,” said Robert J. Pagano Jr., president of  ITT’s Industrial Process business, which includes the Goulds Pumps, PRO Services and Bornemann brands. “We seek to spotlight the companies and individuals that work so hard, usually behind the scenes, to literally keep industry moving. It’s an important part of Pump Appreciation Day, which is held the second Tuesday of April each year.”

The Heart of Industry Award recognizes industrial operations for excellence in using pump technology to improve plant processing, satisfy customers and enhance our modern way of life. Honors will go to companies or plants nominated by Goulds Pumps, PRO Services and Bornemann sales offices and distributors, with a limit of one award winner per office. Organizations using Goulds Pumps products and services are encouraged to contact their distributors to learn more.
