Selwood Pump Company Limited has become a member of a leading industry association to promote its work for clients around the world.
Hall Green-based Selwood Pump Company Limited, which supplies a wide range of pumps for diverse industry sectors including oil and car manufacturing, has joined the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA), the organisation set up to represent the business interests of UK and Irish suppliers of liquid pumps.
Based in West Bromwich, the BPMA was launched in 1941 to “influence the pump sector business environment in the interests of members’ competitiveness and sustainability”.
The organisation also aims to increase sector awareness by providing technical support and pump technology training to members, operators and purchasers of pumping equipment”.
In business since 1967, Selwood has been flying the flag for British and Birmingham engineering with clients worldwide.
British designed and produced, Selwood’s products are built to last, with several pumps still in use after more than 40 years.
Selwood pumps are used in oil transfer and processing in ocean-going tankers and in the paint equipment for leading car manufacturers. Selwood products are also used and trusted by water authorities and steel processing plants.
Selwood continues to innovate, with recent launches including bespoke pump solutions for operation on customer specific applications.
Managing Director Graham Gallen, who has worked for the company for nearly 40 years, said Selwood was pleased to join the BPMA.
He said: “We are delighted to see Selwood welcomed by the BPMA and look forward to being part of an association which actively promotes the work of our industry.
“While Selwood may not be a household name, our products are used by leading brands at power stations, car factories, oil processing facilities and across all sectors of manufacturing.
“With BPMA members accounting for the majority of our nation’s £1 billion-plus market for pumps and with the UK pump industry working as a net exporter, we believe joining will have a positive impact on our business.”
Selwood continues to follow wherever possible a policy of working with local businesses wherever possible and supporting commerce within the West Midlands region.
