SPX is ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at PIA 2015

SPX has been recognised for its outstanding work as a pump manufacturer by the Pumps Industry Awards (PIA) 2015. Its Glasgow facility, which manufactures ClydeUnion Pumps, has been awarded ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at this year’s prestigious Annual Pump Industry Awards.

In addition, one of its bright young engineers, Emma Lambert has been recognised as the ‘Engineer of the Year’. This award was sponsored by WorldPumps.

This year’s PIA drew an unprecedented record number of submissions. After being judged by a panel last December to review the entries, finalists were selected for the awards evening. A public voting throughout January and February determined the winners, who were revealed at the March 19th awards ceremony. 

SPX has a long heritage in the supply of reliable pumping solutions. The manufacturing facility in Glasgow has consistently been one of the largest engineering employers in the region and provides brilliantly engineered pumping packages. SPX’s ClydeUnion Pumps is recognised as one of the world’s leading pump brands in providing original equipment pumping technologies and full system solutions.

Gary Walker, Head of Engineering of the Glasgow facility said, “I would like tooffer my heartiest congratulations to all my colleagues at SPX ClydeUnion Pumps Glasgow. This is a great achievement for the individuals concerned and also for one and all in the Glasgow facility as everyone has had a part to play.

With dedicated Aftermarket and Field Service, we provide full product life cycle solutions supporting Service, Repair, Overhaul and Spare Parts, Customer Training, RCA studies, Upgrades and Re-rates.”
