Pump Industry Awards finalists announced…

THE PUMP INDUSTRY AWARDS 2006

The Royal Court Hotel – Keresley, Coventry UK

Tuesday 17th October 2006


This year’s call for nominations for the Pump Industry Awards received a record response, with over 80 nominations reflecting the breadth of pump and system engineering and innovation across the globe. The quality of nominations was also extremely high, making the choice of finalists in each category a tough one for the team of independent judges.

Following a full-day of discussion, deliberation and some healthy debate, 22 finalists were selected, and listed below are those companies and individuals who have made it through to the next stage.

The finalists for each of the awards’ categories are listed below and on the dedicated website www.pumpindustryawards.com where a more detailed account of each entry can be found.

The online voting facility opens in July, so to help us determine the very best of the best, visit the website to vote for your choices online.
