PIA Pump Industry Awards 2020/21

Postponed due to the pandemic, the long-established Pump Industry Awards ceremony will take place in late September, celebrating its 20th anniversary.

The awards programme received a record number of entries. On the evening of Thursday 23rd September, the extended wait will be over, allowing the pump industry to re-connect, re-unite, and celebrate its business, professional and engineering prowess. It will recognise the significant achievements which took place in the 18-month period preceding December 2019.

The organisers will also shortly be seeking nominations and entries for the 2022 Pump Industry Awards. Returning to the usual Spring dateline for the gala dinner and presentation ceremony, the event will take place on Thursday 24th March, again at the Chesford Grange Hotel in Kenilworth.

The call for nominations, covering activities in the two-year period up to December 2021, will open on 27th September, with a final deadline of 7th January 2022. 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-19.

This additional acknowledgement will go hand in hand with the following 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 (Sponsored by EMIR Software), Supplier of the Year (Sponsored by Wilo), Contribution to Skills & Training (Sponsored by Tomlinson Hall), Rising Star Award (Sponsored by World Pumps), and Lifetime Contribution (Sponsored by BPMA).
