Wilo has been named manufacturer of the year in the Pump Industry Awards 2019, held at the Heythrop Park Resort, Oxfordshire. The 2019 Awards event was hosted by TV and Radio’s Penny Smith, the current presenter of Weekend Breakfast on Talkradio. It’s a prestigious award last won by the company back in 2011, although they have won awards for different categories most years since then.
In addition to winning the Manufacturer of the Year award for 2019, Wilo was shortlisted in three other categories this year. Interim Managing Director Andy O’Brien says performing well in these awards is vital to the business: “It’s always good to be recognised amongst your peers and competitors and these awards recognise the very best in the pump industry here in the UK.
“It’s been a challenging year for everyone in the sector and it’s a huge credit to the pump industry that the quality of entries this year was so high. We’re delighted to be recognised by the people who work with us and who buy and specify our pumps – because for us, this is why this is such an important one to win – it’s voted for by the people who understand our business and who work with pump manufacturers day in and day out in their professional lives. As well as offering a staggering range of high quality products, we have worked hard to improve our performance still further in the servicing and customer service areas of our business and this award suggests we’re getting it right.”
