BPMA and European Sealing Association sign cooperation agreement

The BPMA and European Sealing Association have signed an agreement to exchange information about pumps and sealing related standards and legislation. The agreement also covers, but is not limited to, technical and environmental issues and training programmes.

The agreement was formally signed by BPMA President, Mr Peter Reynold of Grundfos Pumps UK (pictured) and ESA Chairman, Mr John Morton of John Crane.

Commenting on the signing, BPMA Director and CEO, Mr Steve Schofield said, “this is an exciting development for both organisations, and one which I’m sure will quickly deliver important benefits for our respective memberships”.

He added, “with the agreement coming into effect in our 75 th Anniversary year, it is a further indication of our commitment to ensuring pump systems excellence across the international arena”.

Established in 1941, the British Pump Manufacturers’ Association (BPMA) is a not-for- profit trade association representing the interests of UK and Irish manufacturers and suppliers of liquid pumps and other pump related equipment.

Established in 1992, the European Sealing Association is a not-for- profit trade association representing the interests of manufacturers and suppliers of sealing devices and materials across Europe. Recognising the core values of each organisation and the fact that that they already follow very similar technical, standardisation, training, energy and environmental protocols across their respective product areas, it has been determined that a great deal of mutual benefit can be derived from such an undertaking.
