Regarded as one of the leading industry events, the Pump Industry Awards shines a spotlight on outstanding achievement within the pump sector. Winners will be announced on Thursday 22nd March 2018 at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Heythrop Park, Chipping Norton. The evening will be attended by key players in the industry and promises a gala dinner with live music from Skye, a female opera group, with awards presented by ITV journalist and presenter, Andrea Byrne.

“We are thrilled to be shortlisted twice at these important awards and to have had both our company and one of our leading products recognised in this way” explains Fay Davis, Group Communications Manager at Aspen Pumps. “Our success, as a manufacturer, has been driven by our commitment to design innovation, as well as the skills and experience of our engineers, and so we are delighted that this has been acknowledged.”

Aspen Pumps has a heritage of design innovation focusing on installer requirements, with the company established over 25 years ago by installation engineers who understood the market requirements. Over the last 25 years, Aspen Pumps is the UK’s market leader in design and manufacture of condensate removal pumps and accessories, setting the standard for excellence in the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration industry.

Aspen’s design ethos is to provide best-in-class quality and reliability while ensuring the pumps can be installed quickly and easily. Consequently, Aspen Pumps’ products boast the highest reliability in their sector. The company has a dedicated technical helpline and website able to offer full support on installation, product selection, servicing and fault finding for engineers in the field, wholesaler counter staff, architects and consultants. The Innovation team also provides the whole sales force with training, up-to-date analysis and technical product support. Aspen Pumps’ innovation has been recognised by a raft of industry awards as well as the Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2014.

It is this design focus which has led to the low profile MAX Hi-Flow tank pump being shortlisted in the ‘Technical Innovation of the Year’ category of the Pump Industry Awards.
