ITT celebrates sixth-annual Pump Appreciation Day


    SENECA FALLS, N.Y., April 11, 2017ITT Inc.’s (NYSE: ITT) Goulds Pumps, PRO Services and Bornemann brands today observed the sixth-annual Pump Appreciation Day, a global event held to raise awareness of the value of pumps to modern manufacturing and products, and honor those that make them possible.
    “Pumps are essential machines but silent workers in running a plant. Each year on Pump Appreciation Day, we are proud to celebrate the importance of pumps but also to recognize the people and organizations that design, manufacture, install and service them,” said Dave Steblein, VP & GM of Sales for the Americas. “We also take the opportunity to pay tribute to the men, women and organizations that help drive modern manufacturing forward.”
    This year, 17 organizations and their representatives were presented with the Heart and Pulse of Industry Award. This award recognizes companies, plants and individuals whose operational excellence and use of pump technology advance plant processing, customer service and our overall way of life through improved reliability, efficiency and lower cost of ownership.
    In addition to Pump Appreciation Day events and award programs, an online World of Pumps Quiz, testing participants’ knowledge of the pump industry and its products, attracted close to 11,000 unique visitors from 90 countries in the months leading up to Pump Appreciation Day.
